Surface Chain of Title Workshop

Surface Chain of Title Workshop

Diversify Your Career Skills

The course is very similar to the Online Mineral Chain of Title course but deals with an irregular tract of
land in Oklahoma.

The student will learn how documents are used from the County Clerk’s Office, County Assessor’s
Office and the County Treasurer’s Office.

The student will see how to create the chain of title from actual scanned documents and how to create

Dear David,
Thank you for the truly informative course held last September.
I have completed my first year as an in-house landman for a petroleum company and can’t imagine how I could have achieved it without your excellent tutelage.
