ALTA National Title Professional Designation:

Are you the smartest person in your office? Prove it with the American Land Title Association’s (ALTA’s) National Title Professional (NTP) designation. A measure of personal achievement, ALTA’s professional acknowledgement affirms these experts are powerhouses of knowledge, experience and dedication essential to the title industry.

The NTP designation provides evidence of your industry proficiency as well as your commitment to professional development. It represents your achievement of excellence and enhances your status in the industry and among your colleagues! Other tangible benefits include:

  • Individual recognition in ALTA publications and website
  • Discounts on ALTA meetings
  • Special benefits and recognition at ALTA meetings and select State Land Title Association events
  • Right to use the NTP designation and logo in your business publications, website and correspondence, including marketing efforts, resume and networking activities

To apply for the NTP designation, you must meet several individual, licensing and training prerequisites. You must be an ALTA member and, if your State Land Title Association offers a similar designation, you also must earn your local credential before applying. Once all prerequisites are met, you must earn a minimum of 100 NTP points to qualify for consideration. Points can be earned in many areas, including industry experience, education and training as well as involvement with ALTA, your State Land Title Association and other professional organizations. All applications are reviewed by the NTP Council, a group of up to nine designees appointed by ALTA’s Board of Governors.
