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.

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.


In preparation for another licensure examination for those aspiring to be licensed real estate brokers, subject to the approval and final accreditation of the Professional Regulation Commission, through PRB-RES. PRC’s Real Estate Board, the Professional Regulatory Board for Real Estate Service (PRB-RES), and in compliance with all the rules of the Real Estate Service Act (RESA), URBAN Institute of Real Estate will conduct the required 120-credit-unit training seminar for prospective examinees in the board examination for real estate brokers set in March 27, 2011.

In Quezon City it will be at Maximo Function Room, Max’s Restaurant, Gateway Mall, Cubao, January 4 to February 24, 2011, Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursdays, 8:30 to 11:30 AM then 12:30 to 2:30 PM.

The course will cover the following topics: Fundamentals of Property Ownership; Code of Ethics and Responsibilities; Legal Requirements for Real Estate Service Practice; Real Estate Brokerage Practice; Subdivision Development; Condominium Concept and other types of real estate holdings; Real Estate Finance and Economics; Basic Principles of Ecology; Urban and Rural Land Use; Planning, Development and Zoning; Legal Aspect of Sale, Mortgage and Lease; Documentation and Registration; Real Property Laws; Real Estate Taxation and other subjects that may be later prescribed.

  1. Hello Sir Jay,

    Salamat po sa post na ‘to. Ang tagal ko na naghahanap ng pwde ko kunan, buti nakita ko to at naliwanagan ako. Umm sir, Taga-Leyte po kasi ako, magtatanong lang po sana, kung credited po ba ang mga Online Real Estate courses? Halimbawa po kumuha ako ng 120 units nito online pwede na ho ba ako kumuha ng Licensing exam? Medyo hussle kasi kung pupunta pa ko ng ibang lugar para kumuha ng seminar.Pangalawa po, kung napasa ko ho ba ang Licensing exam tapos magkaroon na ng BS Real Estate, required pa rin ho ba ako kumuha ng course na ‘to?

    Graduate po ako ng BS Economics sa UP at interesado ho talaga akong pumasok sa Real Estate industry, kaso hindi ko alam kung pano. My tips ho ba kayo sir para sakin?

    Thank you and more power!

    • Hi Kevz,

      As far as I know, at the moment hindi pa pwede yung online seminars para sa 120-units, although pwede up to 15 units as self directed CPE.

      Yes, alam ko meron nang 4-year real estate courses na available and I believe pag meron nang mag-gra-graduate, required na sa lahat maging graduate ng 4-year real estate course para maging licensed real estate broker. Good luck!

      • Salamat talaga sir, the best talaga kayo.

        Will be following your posts sir for updates regarding sa accredited 120-hour real estate seminars and reviews.

        Thank you and more power po!

  3. Hi Sir Jay,

    I would just like to ask how many times a year nagbibigay ang PRC ng exams for real estate brokers and on what months. Do you have an updated list of accredited service providers that offer the required one hundred twenty (120) credit units of real estate subjects and training? Thanks!

  4. Sir Jay, paano po i-earn yung 120 units for REB’s exam? at kailan magstart at saan ang venue ng Review/Seminar for nextyear’s REB’s exam. Thanks in Advance.

    • Hi G-rald, you earn the 120 units through a PRC Certified Real Estate Seminar and Review or CRESR. So far wala pang formal announcement for the next REB Exam so wala pa rin ang mga CRESR schedules. This should come-out around October 2012, if ever.

  5. Nag eentertain pa ba ang PRC ng reg. w/out exam for Real Estate parctitioner kc sunod sunod ung aprub res. for reg. w/out exam, ngayon feb 2012, nd kc ako nakaabot sa deadline nung july 30, 2011. Pls. reply God bless u

    • Sorry Jonatahan pero as far as I know, the only option for those who missed the deadline is to take the real estate brokers licensure exam.

  6. Hi

  9. helow po …. ako sana gusto ko pong kumuha ng training and seminar para maging real estate sales person..first year college lang po ako…anu po ba ang kailangan ko gawin at saan ako kukuha ng ganitong training sa pasig po ako malapit…please reply…

  10. Sir, is there another exam for those who wants to a license real-estate broker? if there is, is there another seminar or review schedule by the month of November or December?
    Where will be the exam?

  11. Hi, I am 54 years old and a College graduate. I am very interested to go into the Real Estate business as a licensed Real Estate Broker. I have a good selling experience as a licensed Life Insurance Underwriter and have received some achievement awards. I also garnered a 100% score in the Life Insurance Underwriting licensure exam which I took in 1995. My superiors and Managers told me that they can see in me a great potential to succeed in sales and have in fact adviced me to further pursue Life Insurance Underwriting as a serious career and profession by taking special studies and seminars. However I stayed active for only about 10 yrs. because my family & our growing family business needed my full time attention. But presently, now that all of my four children have graduated and our business seem to be in place, I believe I already have the time to venture into the Real Estate business. Thus as a first step, I plan to attend the Comprehensive Real Estate Seminar sponsored by PAREB-DBRFI here in Davao City on Sept.24. Accordingly, it will be good for 120 units. My question is will I qualify for the Licensure Exam even if my course in college is BS Home Economics? I hope and pray that PRC will consider my application for Licensure after completing/complying with the requirements. Please your thoughts and advice will be much appreciated. I hope to hear from you very soon. Thank you very much!

    • mam flora,

      good day! i just want to know where in davao city did you attend the CRE Seminar? and how much did you pay?.
      Your information is much appreciated. Thank you.

  12. Jay, for those who are interested to enter real estate and update their license with PRC here is a short piece of information:
    The next Real Estate Brokers Examinations to be conducted by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) and the Professional Regulatory Board of Real Estate Service (PRB-RES) will be on Jamuary 2012. We urge those interested to take the Licensure Examinations to start their review and study this early. SCORE EXPONENT TRAINING CENTER in coordination with the PRB-RES will start conducting the 120 credit units REAL ESTATE BROKERS SEMINAR AND TRAINING (REBSAT) starting this July 9, 2011. A continuing Program every weekends for the months of July and August 2011.

    The REBSAT Program will also accommodate Licensed Real Estate Brokers (under DTI) who are required to comply with their Continuing Professional Education (CPE) as required under the new real estate law – the Real Estate Service Act (RESA) for them to renew their DTI License with PRC (without the required examination). But this will only be up to July 30, 2011 only.

    Also, accreditation with PRC and PRB-RES for real estate salespersons license is on-going. For salespersons, they are required to undergo a 12-credit hours/units of real estate brokerage training, for them to be licensed as real estate salespersons with PRC/ PRB-RES. They can also join the on-going REBSAT Program for their compliance with the required Continuing Professional Development (CPD) seminar.
    please get in touch with us: score_etc@yahoo.com

    • sir do you still have sked of trainings for 120 units for August? 120 units po ba is for High school grad only? to take a license broker exam kailangan po ba College grad? or years of experienced pwede na?

  13. Pingback: Updates on CRESAR (or REBSAT) review centers for the 2011 Real Estate Brokers Exam
  14. Jay, very noticeable during last Thursdays’ start of registration for Board Exam Passers was that about 90% of those who filed didn’t have a Surety Bond and had their applications marked HOLD and that they don’t know where to acquire one. Some of them asked our successful examinees at SCORE-SETC and they referred them to me as their source of info regarding this matter. I was deluged with numerous inquiries that I have to seek assistance of our friends in the Insurance Business.
    One of them responded positively and beginning Monday will set up a satellite office just across the street from the PRC Entrance gate. They promised same day, while-u-wait service( about 1-hour waiting time) so that broker’s won’t have to return
    the next day for their bonds. Price of the Premium is reasonably below P2,000 and is good for three years already. (Some charge as high P3,500 ).
    I hope this will make things easier for the already stressed-out New Real Estate Brokers joining our ranks. Our humble Welcome gift as we usher these new practitioners into the exciting world of Real Estate Service!

  15. Hi Armi,
    Ty for ur prompt reply. I do know that I can be a dealer to sell my properties. But I would still like to be a licensed broker for others in the future. Do you know any forthcoming seminar in end of May/ early June?

  16. hi to all,

  17. Hi,
    I am a Filipina by birth living abroad but planning to retire in the Philippines soon, have a Post Graduate diploma in Business, have a few properties I’m starting to sell that’s why I got interested to be a licensed real estate broker. Am I qualified to enrol in the next Real Estate Seminar and Review? When is the next one in Makati? I prefer the shortest course as I will only be flying in for that purpose.
    Appreciate your advise asap.
    Thank you,

    • Hi Norge, you don’t need to become a licensed broker if you want to sell properties that are your own. You are thankfully exempted. 🙂

  18. Pingback: How to file your PRC real estate brokers exam application
  19. To answer your question, rommel:
    1. Other than those who have at least 2 years of college education, those who have been previously accredited with DTI and HLURB as salespersons could be accredited by PRC regardless of their educational background. Another way that a high school graduate could get an accreditation as salesperson is through a certification from a PRC-Licensed Broker that this person has been a practitioner for at least three years before RESA was signed into law(2009).
    2. Yes, the other salespersons being referred to in Sec. 31 are those who fail to meet the minimum education requirement but have years of experience behind them.

    Take note, however, that they have to undergo at least 12 credits units CPD of real estate brokerage before July 30,2011!

  20. sir,
    I just want to clarify this Sec. 31, please…

    SEC. 31 Supervision of Real Estate Salespersons

    For real estate salespersons, no examination shall be given, but they shall be accredited by the Board, provided that they have completed at least two (2) years of college and have undergone training and seminars of at least twelve (12) credit units in real estate brokerage. Those salespersons who are registered with DTI/HLURB or other salespersons who are in the active practice for at least three (3) years, as may be certified by a licensed broker or a real estate developer, prior to the effectivity of R.A. No. 9646 may also be accredited by the Board until 30 July 2011. Provided, further, That in both cases such Real Estate Salespersons must have undergone at least one hundred twenty (120) training hours in real estate brokerage, and have submitted original NSO certificate of live birth / birth certificate, NBI clearance, certificate of educational attainment or its equivalent, notarized certificate of training or seminar and notarized certificate of their supervising licensed brokers, as may be required by the Board.

    I am confuse with this Sec. 31, pls. give me more some insights about the statement above:

    1. A lot of practitioners believe that only persons who completed at least 2 years in college are allowed to be licensed salespersons. How about those who have finished only elementary and secondary education but in the real estate for many years and performs well in properties selling?

    2. In Sec. 31, there is, “those salespersons who are registered with DTI/HLURB or other salespersons who are in the active practice for at least three (3) years, as may be certified by a licensed broker or a real estate developer, prior to the effectivity of R.A. No. 9646 may also be accredited by the Board until 30 July 2011. Provided, further, That in both cases such Real Estate Salespersons must have undergone at least one hundred twenty (120) training hours in real estate brokerage,…” Who are the other persons? Does it refer to persons who have been in real estate practice for many years but completed only elementary or high school? Please educate me. Ty.

    • i think the salespersons mentioned here, those that can still be accredited until July 30, 2011, are (1) salespersons registered with DTI/HLURB and (2) have been in the active practice for at least 3 years as certified by a licensed broker. Both need to have undergone at least 120 training hours (must be able to present proof such as a certificate) AND also a notarized certificate from their supervising licensed broker. In other words, those who do not satisfy the requirement of being at least 2nd year college level will have until July 30, 2011 to present those certificates to be given accreditation. After July 30, only those who are at least 2nd year college AND have taken the 12 CPE units are eligible to be accredited salespersons. Please correct me if I’m wrong sir Jay.

  21. Good day!!! may i ask is there another class for brokers after the exam this march? when will be the next seminars and review? please reply thanks.

  22. Good day,

  24. Hi sir Jay, Thanks for the information you always share here in your blog. Its my first time to read your blog and I enjoyed it. From now on, once you have an update with real estates blogs, I will always return and comment on your updates.

  25. You will need to secure a copy or certification from the DTI re: your lost COR, ID. Although the PRC has a copy of the DTI roster of real estate practitioners, it is best that you present your own copy during the application for accreditation without exam.
    Then, you have to complete a 120-unit REBSAT (Real Estate Brokerage Seminar & Training), present a notarized Certificate of Completion together with your application form and other PRC documentary requirements.
    SET-C(Score Exponent Training Center will be holding its REBSAT beginning Jan.22, 2011 at the Grand Ballroom of the Makati Palace Hotel. Head Lecturer is CPA/ Realtor ROBERT A. CAPILI, the current record holder for having the highest passing grade of 99%, achieved during the 1987 Broker Licensure Exams.

  28. RESA-compliant REBSAT is now offered by Score Exponent Training Center. Head Lecturer is Realtor/CPA Roberto A. Capili, Board Topnotcher and Record Holder for garnering the highest rating

    Online registration now on-going thru this website: http://setc.webs.com

    Thank you and hope you would pass this on.

      • Hi Armi! We have personally submitted our application for PRC accreditation as CPE Provider to the PRBRES Chairman EG Ong as early as June 2101 and to the PRC Secretary to the Boards. The latter couldn’t accept it because technically, there is no CPE Council for Real Estate Service to accept it. Secondly, there can be no CPE Council because we have no AIPO (Accredited Integrated Professional Organization yet.

        We are operating now as a CPE Provider by virtue of an extended Conditional Authority to Operate(CAO) given by PRBRES to all previously certified DTI-accredited CEP Providers. This authority will last until after the March 27, 2011 Broker’s Exams. We will be requesting for this to be extended further until the CPE Council for RES is finally constituted and convened.

        Whoever is claiming that they are PRC or PRBRES- accredited is not telling the truth and misleading you.

        You can view our updated DTI Certification when you visit our website or click this link: http://setc.webs.com/accreditations.htm

        We have one last REBSAT offering with just 40 slots left for weekend sessions starting January 29 till March 6.
        You may download registration forms through our website:

        Thank you and hope to see you there at Makati Palace Hotel.

    • Hi Dave, there should be, especially since Cebu is one of the places where the licensure exams will be held. I’ll continue looking for one and post it here as soon as I find one or if someone contributes one here.

      Thanks for dropping by, cheers!

    • Hi Dave,

      Cebu has already started review since last week of November by these organization, REBAP, NREA and PAREB-CEREB…but i believed PAREB-CEREB will be having another batch starting Jan. 3.

      I dont have the number of this organization but you can search for it on the net…google is your friend

  37. Sir Jay. thanks on your valuable info.

    Seeking clarification regarding Exam. RE Broker exam requires 120 units equivalent to 120 hours credit. Seminar or Review will be acknowledged, is this correct?

    And Next year onwards, before one becomes RE Broker, one is required to have 4-year course on BS Real Estate Management, is this correct?

    • Hi Luis, you’re welcome and thanks for the feedback.

      Since the PRC has not yet released official guidelines, it is assumed that 120 units is equivalent to 120 hours. I believe seminar AND review’s that offer the required topics, duly accredited by the PRC, is required.

      As to your question if a 4 year course will be a requirement on succeeding licensure exams for brokers, I believe it will be, if such course will already be available. This is my understanding of Section 14 (b) of the RESA Law IRR which I have quoted below:

      “(b) A holder of a relevant bachelor’s degree from a state university or college, or other educational institution duly recognized by the CHED: Provided, That he/she has completed at least one hundred twenty (120) credit units of real estate subjects and training from accredited service providers, as may be determined by the Board; Provided, further, That as soon as a course leading to a Bachelor’s degree in Real Estate Service is implemented by the CHED, the Board shall make this course a requirement for taking the licensure examination.”

      • Seeking Clarification:

        I just want to know, what if I passed the broker examination this March 2011? I will just assume that I will pass it.

        Do I still need to take the Bachelor’s degree in Real Estate Service for the next year onwards? Or not needed anymore because I already have my licensed in broker after passing the March 2011 broker exam?

        May I know what are the requirements needed for the broker exam? Please e mail your answer, comments and suggestions to mjonellepeter@gmail.com. Thanks.
