“I took a chance and completely changed career paths from being a police officer to a loan officer. My friend and branch manager recommended taking Ground School, Flight School, and Officer School. I was hesitant to invest that much into a career that I was unsure of, but a year later, I am so glad I did. I committed to your program 110%, and I am consistently closing a million in production every month! Thanks for what you do!”
