There really is a difference! Your Success is our Priority!

I just wanted to take a moment to say how impressed and appreciative of the NCBAA I am. I turned 20 last August and for a while I have wanted to be a North Carolina Bail Agent, so I did some research and signed up for the class in late October. I was not aware that you have to take the class 6 months or less before you begin the licensing process, so I thought I had wasted my time, and money. Doug Cozart and Melissa Seiler both helped me out immensely by allowing me to come at a later date with no extra charge to retake the test, and whole class, if I wished. Doug personally took time out of his day to spend about an hour with me after class had ended to give me advice, share some resources, and some very meaningful encouragement to help me reach my dream of being a bondsman, and my own boss. Also, I would like to add that I was very impressed with how, during the class, Doug articulated to all of us the movements and changes in legislation that the NCBAA and everyone involved have made to help improve and preserve the the flourishment of North Carolina Bail Agents. There is absolutely no other organization I recommend using to both take your class, and get further education on being a bail agent in North Carolina.

I really enjoyed the class and it has helped me to better understand the business, which in return will help me with my daily duties here in the office. Mr. Cozart did a fantastic job with instruction while keeping it interesting.
