Hofstra University has entered into a partnership with real estate school Leap EDU, to offer real estate professional training courses at its campus.
The flagship offering will be the New York State Real Estate Salesperson course, which is the first step required to earn licensing as a real estate agent in the state. The 75-hour course covers a wide range of topics, including fair housing regulations and discrimination, environmental issues, land-use regulations, sales and leasing contracts, and the law of agency, detailing an agent’s responsibilities in representing a buyer or seller in a transaction. Students are required to pass a comprehensive course exam prior to taking a state exam to earn their Salesperson license.
A proprietary app will allows students to track their course progression, download certificates, view schedules and class details, register for classes, and sign-in/sign-out of attendance from their smart device.
Additionally, Hofstra will be offering Leap EDU real estate continuing education courses, which are required for salespersons to maintain their state license.
