Train to teach real estate

Looking to expand your career beyond buying and selling property? An obvious choice: Become an instructor. And the first step is VAR’s Instructor Training Institute — a three-day course where you’ll learn to create instructional presentations (and no, we don’t mean just PowerPoint).

In fact, the ITI is a pre-requisite to joining the Virginia Realtor Institute faculty.

Think of it this way: Why not have the potential to teach as an option? Whether it’s the potential extra income, a break from your current Realtor work, or something you always wanted to do, it’s worth having this course under your belt.

The details:

May 18-20, 2011
8:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. each day
VAR Headquarters, Glen Allen
Tuition, including all materials and videotape of presentations: $275.

    What are the requirements for teaching other than this 3 day course? I am not a broker but in my 10th year as a sales associate.

    I’d like to take the instructor training but can’t afford three workdays away. Please keep me posted!

  4. Ray Mauk says:

    I notice that every time a class is offered that interests me, it’s held in Richmond. Are most of the VAR Realtors in Richmond? Do you ever hold any classes in Northern Virginia?
