Real estate courses begin Monday; still time to register


Those wanting to get started on a career in real estate can get the ball rolling with two upcoming classes at Rend Lake College.

RLC will offer Broker Pre-License Topics and Broker Pre-License Applied Principles this spring on campus.

“With a career in real estate, your rewards are based directly on your effort and hard work,” said Lori Ragland, Dean of Community and Corporate Education at Rend Lake College. “If you are motivated and can work well with people, the potential is there to earn a high salary along with a flexible work schedule and a degree of autonomy.”

Broker Pre-License Topics will be held from 6-9 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays from Jan. 14 through April 22. This class, worth five credit hours, is an introductory course pertaining to the fundamentals of real estate. Topics covered include federal, state and license law, marketing, seller and buyer relationships, real estate principles, real estate transactions, types of real estate opportunities, and application of real estate principles.

Broker Pre-License Applied Principles is an interactive course which, along with Broker Pre-License Topics, satisfies the 90 hours of instruction required by the Illinois Department of Professional and Financial Regulation. The class will be held from 6-9 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays from April 24 through May 13. Successful completion allows students to sit for the Illinois Real Estate Broker Examination.
