FTBS

The First Time Buyer Certification (FTBS) courses teach you how to build trust with today's First Time Buyers and make them your customers for life. Earning the FTBS Certification sets you apart and indicates to clients that you can offer higher quality service to the new generation of today's home purchasers as well as those trying to come back into the market. You can confidently deliver information to them on available mortgage programs to help them overcome the financing obstacles they experience and turn their challenges into rewarding opportunities for your business.

After all requirements have been met (see below), students may apply for an official certificate. Once certified, students may add the certification to business cards, websites, email signatures, blogs, promotional materials, and more.
