Washington ~ Instructor Led ~ Broker Post Licensing Course


Live Interactive Streamlined Instruction with Student and Instructor.
Personalized 1 on 1 Custom Instruction ~ The Student Creates a Schedule to Fit Their Needs and Lifestyle.
It’s Just Like Being in the Classroom but you are the only student getting all the attention!
Instructor led course, one on one with, C. MarLene McKinley, a predominant instructor with a proven successful record. MarLene contributes her students’ success rate to being well versed and experienced in “andragogy”, which is the art/science of teaching adults.
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 State 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?”
