As one of the leading innovators in the right-of-way industry, ORC recognized years ago an imminent future shortage of trained agents with experience in right-of-way. In response to this impending need, we created our Agent Training Program, a career-track training program that follows a structured curriculum during their first year of employment. We recruit college graduates, second career candidates, and veterans without industry experience to become Junior Agents and participate in the premier internal professional development program in our industry.

ORC’s Agent Training Program is a fully-structured regimen combining various academic/classroom resources with practical “on-the-job” training. As Junior Agents learn more and develop more skills, they earn more responsibility and independence.

Within this program – and as our Junior Agents become Agents, then Project Managers – the learning never stops. Our training division continues to develop and deliver the most up-to-date and industry-specific course material to ORC employees and many of our clients alike.

Many of our best Project Managers are graduates from our Agent Training Program, and they continue to learn new techniques, laws, and general rules to follow. This is critically important when working in a technically specialized field for a variety of clients.
