Once you finish the final exam on the Pre-Licensing portion, most schools will wave goodbye and wish you luck. Not us, the course does not end until you pass the state exam.
“We Hold Your Hand Until You Pass the Exam” *
Ask yourself, “Do other schools offer all these benefits and will the school assist me in preparing for the state exam until I pass?”
We know—you just completed your pre-licensing education. What could you possible have left to learn? As it turns out, quite a bit. Your 18-hour post-licensing course not only comprehensively reviews the basics you learned in your earlier studies—it also takes a deep dive into applying these concepts to your everyday real estate practice. Broken into three six-hour modules—Practical Application of Agency and Disclosure, Real Estate Contracts, and From Contract to Closing—the post-licensing content is designed specifically for newly practicing salespersons who want to connect the dots between agency types and ethical agency dilemmas, contract law and actually filling out a contract form, and closing documents and the people you’ll actually meet on the road from contract to closing.
By both reviewing real estate fundamentals and giving you a detailed picture of agency, contracts, and the transaction process, this course ensures that you’re prepared to protect the interests of your clients, your customers, and the general public.
