Real Estate Courses at Key Realty School

Salesperson pre-licensing

The pre-licensing course for Nevada consists of 90 hours of instruction and can be delivered through different modes of learning, including online, classroom, correspondence, etc. Students have to take four major subjects, and it doesn’t matter the order in which they complete them.

 These subjects include: Agency, Finance, Nevada Law, and Realty

    • How long will it take to complete the subjects? 

Key Realty School has different completion timelines that you can follow to complete the four main topics. For instance, the four-week schedule entails completing one subject per week. Classes run for two sessions, mornings from 9 a.m. to 10.30 a.m. and evening sessions from 6 p.m. to 10.30 p.m.

They also have a 2-week full-time class schedule. Attend evening and morning sessions and cover two subjects per week.

For anyone in a rush to become a real estate agent, they can choose the one-week cram course. It’s a blend of in-person classes (for Nevada law and realty subjects) and home study for the remaining two topics.

Exam preparation programs   

Real estate exams are challenging. And students must prepare for success adequately. Many schools offer a variety of study prep tools. Key Realty School is no different. Some of their options include:

    1.  One day prep class:  The prep class is scheduled for Saturday. There are two 3-hour sessions. During the morning session that runs from 9 a.m., the instructor prepares students to sit for the state portion of the exam. The afternoon session covers the national section and runs for 5 hours.
    2. Video-based exam prep: If you’re not available for the in-person Saturday review classes, you can instead choose the 4-hour video exam prep. It covers the state and national portions of the exam.
    3. Review kit: You get hundreds of practice questions for the state and national portions of the exam. There are content review files and mock exams for preparedness testing.
    4. Review software:  The unique feature in this tool is a readiness indicator that tracks how prepared you are and reflects your progress on flash-cards, review files, practice questions, etc.

Nevada Broker Licensing Course: 

You can also upgrade your salesperson license by taking their broker pre-licensing course. Anyone looking to become a broker will need to complete 64 hours of college credits with stockvault-online-diploma-illustration253715topics such as real estate law, broker management, appraisal, etc. The school offers up to 9 broker courses that salespersons will need to upgrade their licenses. Some credits can be waived by the experience gained as a salesperson for at least two years.

Continuing Education

It’s standard to renew your real estate license every two years. Note that on your first renewal, you will need post-licensing education consisting of 30 clock hours of instruction. The school has organized its post-licensing course into a seminar that students can complete in 3 or 4 days. And it’s offered in-person. Post-licensing education refreshes the new licensee’s knowledge.

CE courses are currently available via live streaming and other modes of delivery. They offer classes for agents reinstating expired licenses. There is a commercial real estate continuing education course as well. Agents licensed for more than 30 years will also find refreshing CE options.
