120-unit Comprehensive Real Estate Seminar and Review (CRESAR) providers

Since it’s official that the real estate brokers exam will be on March 27, 2011, I know a lot of you out there are looking for accredited service providers that offer the required one hundred twenty (120) credit units of real estate subjects and training. Here’s a compilation of service providers that I have stumbled upon.

I’m really sorry this was delayed and I found some seminars have already started. Sorry about that. Anyway, if anyone finds a seminar that is not on the list below, please do leave a comment so I can add it as well. Thanks!

Update as of December 11, 2010 – I just heard that The PRBRES will release the guidelines for the seminars/review by next week and the CRESAR may soon be referred to as REBSAR or REBSAT. I’ll post the guidelines once these become available.

3. Urban Institute of Real Estate 120-credit-unit training seminar for prospective examinees in the board examination for real estate brokers.

Thank you Eden for sending this!

*Please take note that Urban Institute’s CRESAR is still subject to approval and final accreditation of the Professional Regulation Commission. I talked to Engineer Enrico Cruz about this and he said he decided to go ahead and announce the seminar while waiting for the accreditation because it might be too late if he waited for it, which I believe makes sense. Just call him up if you have any questions or concerns using the numbers below.
