Hey, did you get the invite to sign up for IndyMac's new mandatory training at DefaultSchool? I did, and I'm not even an IndyMac-approved broker! My application is pending, and has been for some time now. Fortunately, I am already and REO Default Certified Professional with DefaultSchool, so all I had to do is fork out $399 to take the IndyMac Policies and Procedures course.
Of course, right after getting my cert, I e-mailed it off to IndyMac along with my existing RDCPro Certificate from DefaultSchool. Apparently all brokers who want to work wtih IndyMac have only until August 25 to complete the training to remain eligible to list and sell IndyMac properties.
I heard a lot of whinging and moaning on various mailing lists and forums and such from people who think it's a waste, a rip-off, a scam, whatever. That, or IndyMac is looking to separate the wheat from the chaff.
Me, I'm wheat. OK, I'm either wheat, or I'm just $399 poorer. How about you?
