Why Should You Interview Bailspeak Alumni

for Jobs in Bail Bonds?


Opinion Editorial


By Rex Venator


A Bailspeak Alumnus recently reported undergoing an interview with a bail company bail agent who was looking to hire a bounty hunter regarding a bail bond ordered forfeited by a judge.


As is the case in growing reports by new bounty hunters, the new PC 1299 compliant bounty hunter was quizzed on how to lawfully bounty hunt with an emphasis on describing which legal authorities allow a private citizen bounty hunter to do this or that.


The new bounty hunter was told that a very specific answer was incorrect, and the new bounty hunter informed the licensed bail agent of 2012 and 2013 changes in laws related to bounty hunting and was, in point of fact, found to have answered question correctly much to the bail agent’s surprise.


Today, Bailspeak Alumni who are searching for both bounty hunting and bail agent jobs are, bluntly stated, educating long time bail agents on recent law changes and current events, but how could people fresh out of a bail class educate people who have been in the business for 10, 20 and even 30 years?


Unfortunately, the answer may be found in the massive drop of licensed bail agents who once attended live continuing bail education classes in favor of accruing required continuing education hours via online classes or correspondence courses that may contain unchanged curriculums for nearly ten years, or, perhaps, curriculums that do not contain information about law changes or cannot possibly convey a California Bail Industry that is ever changing at the speed of a text message.


The intent of this Facebook thread isn’t to encourage bail agents to attend Bailspeak’s various continuing bail education courses, but I think it is well worth strongly considering very serious looks at Bailspeak Alumni for salaried bail agent job openings, independent bounty hunting jobs, and for job openings in other various bail agency departments.


The Bailspeak Bail Agent Pre-Licensing bail class is maintained as a state-of-the art, cutting-edge immersion course filled with California Department of Insurance required studies and then taken a decade further with instructional techniques designed to not only help people pass the bail exam on their first tries but to also help them retain critical information in the post licensing world of bail bonds.


There are significant reasons why Bailspeak is quickly becoming the Number 1 Choice for new hires by the leading bail agencies in California and with students arriving from all over the United States and abroad.


Succinctly put, take another look at that Bailspeak Alumni application or resume and consider calling that person in for an interview and quiz that person who left his or her Bailspeak class completely exhausted and loaded with information and with a certificate that is undeniably carrying greater and greater weight by those who have hiring authority in their perspective bail corporations, mom & pop shops, and bounty hunting teams.


Thank you for your time and consideration of Bailspeak Alumni as priority interviewees.


Post Script: the Bailspeak Alumnus, like so many other Bailspeak Alumni, got the job.

I would never presume to even suggest what is best for your in terms of your choice to undertake your California Bail Education training, but, you may rest assured, that I am candid in the extreme insofar that I provide you with the facts, timely information, and it is then up to you to decide what is right for you yourself.


Bailspeak began in 1996, after I’d been bounty hunting for 4 years and had been “street training” new bounty hunters for approximately 2 years. The first venture was the Critical Response Training Academy that held formal seminar classes in Tracy, California from 1995 to 1998, but the “street training” part of the instruction continues to this very day.


Since then, I’ve used my prior military and civilian law enforcement, martial arts instruction and other areas of relevant training and experience to develop my own successful bail bond company that was inevitably followed by helping others, as a small business consultant, to develop their own successful sole proprietorship bail bond companies.


The next natural evolution was to formalize decades of what I had learned into what is today California’s fastest growing and most trusted name in bail education; indeed, countless Bailspeak Alumni are now working in the California Bail Bonds Industry as bounty hunters, posting bail agents, bail bond company support staff, and many have ventured off to begin their own bail bonds businesses.


Please feel free to peruse this simple website that is totally replete with photographs, testimonials and videos from bail bonds classes, bounty hunting, continuing education classes and much, much more. This “open book” transparency that is readily available to the public is totally unique when it comes to bail bonds and bounty hunters schools. In this one-of-a-kind way you can enjoy something very important—Consumer Protection.


Please feel free to catch a quick synopsis of my background below, and I look forward to seeing you in class, on the streets and in any case safely enjoying Luck in Bail.


“Awesome!! This class had me totally prepared to pass the bail exam as well as having some real life tips on etiquette, image, and safety in bounty hunting as well as writing bonds.


Rex has a vast knowledge of both the business and the laws. He makes the information easy and enjoyable to learn.


I will always use Bailspeak to refer other people and do my continuing education. You can trust your getting what you pay for and more here!”

~ San Diego, Bailspeak Alumnae - 2015


“Wish we could have teachers [in colleges and schools] teach this way.  Would be a much better pass rate!  That it was very active.  Real live examples.  Now I know a lot about bail.  So helpful.  Keep me in mind because I’m like a “shark”!  LOL


“Overall, I have learned so much information regarding bail, and the bail process.  I now understand more of the penal codes & insurance codes for which I hadn’t before.  Learning this information has made me more capable of fully understanding bail.  It has made me an asset now because of the amount of information I have collectively learned.  Keep up the good work Rex.  You have taught me so much already!”

“The information provided to me was a lot but the instructor provided the information in the way that made it easy to grasp.  The information packets that can be used as a study guide to the exam as well as in my future career as a bail agent.  I can honestly say, without a doubt or hesitation, there was nothing I didn’t like about this course.  Thank you for all your information!  It is comforting to be instructed by someone with as much experience as yourself!”


“The way Rex broke everything down to understand the class.”


“The instructor was very specific and used life events as examples.”


“Rex, you’re awesome!  Explain information very well, easy to follow.  [I liked] Everything!  Crash course, but glad its pretty easy to understand!  Thank you!  I can’t wait to tell you I passed the exam!”
