How to Choose Your Education Provider

TIPS FOR MAKING THE RIGHT DECISION

When you’re starting a new career, education is your first step. Making sure you choose the right education provider is essential to starting your new journey on the right foot. Here are a few things to look for:

 

AGE OF CONTENT & PLATFORM

Good content is the key to a quality education. The real estate market is constantly changing and if you’re not learning based on the most recent trends, you’ll be outdated before you even get started.

 

REFUND POLICY

Not able to finish your course? Change your mind? Some providers don’t provide a refund for any reason.

 

 

ONLINE VS. CLASSROOM

If not done well, taking an online course can feel like reading a bland textbook. Classrooms can be inconvenient and only offer one-size-fits-all learning that may not fit your individual needs.

 

EDUCATION METHODS

In this day and age, providers often resort to flat, overwhelming text that lacks context and engagement. The best education consists of a mix of text, images, and video, and is updated constantly.

MONEY BACK GUARANTEE

You shouldn’t have to pay for something that isn’t right for you. A lot of providers don’t have your best interests in mind and don’t offer a guarantee on their products once a course is started.

 

SCHEDULE

The busy life of a real estate agent doesn’t afford time for battling traffic on the way to a classroom. Online courses give the ability to do your coursework when and where you have the time.

 

PASS RATES - Learn more*

Most providers don’t publish their pass rates – and that’s usually for a reason. Knowing their average success rate will help you determine if it’s the best choice for you.

 

CUSTOMER SERVICE

The beauty of online education is that you can take it when the time is right for you, and it just makes sense to have customer service be as accessible as your courses. Make sure your provider is available when you need them.
