Did you know that the California Community Colleges educate more professional real estate agents than any source of private real estate training in California? The Community Colleges enrolled over 11,500 student in real estate and escrow (TOP codes 051110 & 051100) courses during spring semester 2013. No wonder that a real estate education means jobs, jobs, JOBS.

The Real Estate Education Center is working with the California Bureau of Real Estate on a new methodology for capturing student success rates for the real estate salesperson and broker examinations. Look to The Informer newsletter for details on how to contact the Bureau of Real Estate to request a unique tracking number for each of your real estate and escrow courses.

Financial Literacy in California high schools is key to future successful landlord/tenant relationships and home ownership. The Real Estate Center is once more collaborating with the California Bureau of Real Estate to publish Finance 101 in support of high school financial literacy. Look for an instructors’ guide including curriculum and a student textbook in the next months.

San Francisco, California, USA City College of San Francisco has been the site of the California Community Colleges Real Estate Education Center since July 1, 2002.
