Continuing Education will offer real estate courses
The Penn State Beaver Office of Continuing Education will offer two real estate courses beginning January 2013. The courses are designed for people who are preparing to take the salesperson or broker’s license examinations offered by the Pennsylvania Real Estate Commission as well as those employed or seeking employment in real estate-related organizations, including title search, appraisal, and mortgage companies.
Real Estate Fundamentals will be offered 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., Mondays and Thursdays, Jan. 21 through March 11 and will provide a foundation for the study of real estate in Pennsylvania, covering language, principles, and laws that govern the industry.
Real Estate Practice will be offered 8:15 to 10:15 p.m., Mondays and Thursdays, Jan. 21 through March 11 and offers an introduction to all facets of the real estate industry, including a survey of areas of specialization with emphasis on the role of a real estate agent in residential brokerage. Examination of a real estate transaction is designed and conducted to provide a working knowledge of actual forms and documents, including related mathematics.
The salesperson and broker examinations require applicants to demonstrate an understanding of laws, rules, and other aspects of real estate practice. Completion of these two salesperson courses fulfills requirements to sit for the Real Estate Salesperson Licensing Exam. It is highly recommended that these two courses be taken concurrently. Each course fee is $280.
