Overview — From sales to home inspections, this program prepares you for a wide range of careers in the real estate field.

The program offers coursework in sales and brokerage, property management, mortgage lending, investment, community building inspection, home inspection and other areas. It includes broad training in the major areas of real estate, which can lead to sales and broker licenses, certifications for building inspection, licensed home inspector, or to one of several designations in property management. 


This Real Estate program is approved by the Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services. Salesperson’s preparation courses (RLEST-180 and RLEST-182) and broker’s preparation courses (RLEST-183 and RLEST-187) are offered to meet minimum educational requirements to qualify for the state licensing exams.


Career Pathway —  New programs –
