CRE Core Concepts Series

CRE Core Concepts Series

Thursday, February 1, 2024 9:00 AM - Tuesday, February 13, 2024 12:30 PM (EST)


The CRE Core Concepts Series (CCS) is designed to bring together a faculty of industry leaders and top producers to teach the fundamentals of commercial real estate. Five courses are offered over three weeks, allowing students to concurrently tend to business while learning. A certificate of completion is awarded to students who attend all five classes, but students are welcome to sign-up for individual courses as well. These courses are intended for those relatively new to commercial real estate, but all experience levels are encouraged to sign-up and participate. Brokers, developers, property managers and administrators will all benefit from being exposed to the course materials, and real estate licenses are not required as a prerequisite, unless receiving CE-credit.

Each of the five courses are part of CRCBR’s CRE Core Concepts Series. Don’t forget that you must register for the entire Series to receive the CRE Core Concepts certificate of completion.
