Hi Shankor!

To be a title closer is something that one can be taught.  You will
need to know about all the recording documents, what forms of
acknowledgments are required, and have some basic knowledge of title
insurance.  The New York University offers courses/classes from time
to time that covers "From Contract to Closing" that will give anyone
interested in becoming a closer the basics required to do so.

There is also a course to assist you at the 
University College for Continuing Education
250 Hofstra University, 
Hempstead, NY 11549-2500, 
(516) 463-5993 

"BS4231. How to Become a Real Estate Title Closer 
Ira L. Zankel / Wed, 7-9 p.m. / 6 sessions / Apr 10-May 15 / $250

A successful real estate or mortgage closing is often the result of
knowledgeable and competent title closers working together with the
legal profession. As an essential party to a closing, a title closer
can often earn hundreds of dollars a day without having obtained a
professional degree or even formal training. This practical course
familiarizes students with the documents, procedures and problems that
arise in a title search, together with the varying fees, transfer and
mortgage taxes, and other charges collected by the title company at a
closing. Students even participate as title closers in mock closings.
Upon completion of the course, students are able to provide title
closing services to a title insurance company."

Good luck!
