Preparation & Advancement


Although a formal degree is rarely required to be an escrow officer, many officers take courses in real estate or business to increase opportunities for advancement and to be more prepared to work with clients. Many who begin working in escrow start off assisting established officers for several years, doing office work as well as learning the specifics of the job.


There are no formal education requirements for a career as an escrow officer


Escrow assistants progress to being officers and then may open their own escrow agencies.
