Want to be a better broker? AMBA Education Specialist Charlotte Tran wants to help!
Charlotte is involved with furthering people’s careers even before they become officially licensed mortgage brokers. She provides newcomers to the industry with the information they need to become licensed professionals. She helps students register for practice courses and manages the current licensing exams. And for those already in the biz, she handles continuing education, sourcing speakers for webinars, and conferences.
Charlotte’s background was on the administrative side of education. She credits a mentor, Gemma Beirback formerly of the Calgary Real Estate Board, for singling her out for training in instructional design. She produced her first training course in 2016 and knew then it was what she was meant to be doing.
Since joining AMBA in September 2021, she has embarked on the task of rebuilding our licensing program training in its entirety. This includes developing course work covering upwards of 800 competencies the Real Estate Council of Alberta require from our learners. Once that approval process is complete, she plans to focus on developing continuing education courses for existing members to elevate their knowledge.
Charlotte is passionate about lifelong learning and is always enrolled in professional development courses herself. She thrives on problem-solving, helping out the team, and helping people achieve their maximum potential. The course development work she’s putting in now will set up our membership — and the association as a whole — for success for years to come.
In her off-hours, her two boys keep Charlotte and her husband plenty busy. She enjoys camping, reading, and travel. Her keen style comes, in part, from to her willingness to serve as a test subject for her hairstylist cousin’s experiments with the latest techniques. She doesn’t have as much time for nail art as she used to, but owns 215 bottle of nail polish. She’s a huge Harry Potter fan and can’t wait to share those magical stories with her kids (books before movies!).
“I’m really excited for the future of AMBA,” Charlotte says. “We have a really great team and I think we’re going to do our members proud over the next few years. Wait till you see what we’ve got coming!”
