Who should take the Title Insurance Pre-Licensing Class?

A Title Insurance Producer (TIP) or a Title Insurance Producer Independent Contractor (TIPIC) must first take the Title Insurance Pre-Licensing class before sitting for the Title Insurance Licensing Exam. Both must be licensed by the Maryland Insurance Commissioner to conduct business in the Maryland. It is the title insurer’s responsibility to see that all appointed TIPs and TIPICs are appropriately licensed.​

A TIP is a person (individual or company), including an attorney, who solicits, procures, or negotiates title insurance contracts for compensation or who provides escrow, closing, or settlement services that may result in the issuance of a title insurance contract.

A TIPIC is an independent contractor, including an attorney, who provides on behalf of a TIP escrow, closing, or settlement services that may result in the issuance of a title insurance contract. A TIPIC must be a commissioned notary in order to witness documents.
