CONTINUING EDUCATION THROUGH THE ELMIRA-CORNING ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®

The Elmira-Corning Association of REALTORS® offers several options for real estate agents and appraisers to meet their continuing education requirements.  We offer real estate continuing education courses in a classroom setting, including REALTOR® Designation courses and pre-licensing courses.  (see classroom schedule below)

Although we believe students get more out of classroom courses, we realize that our education schedule does not always fit the busy schedule of a real estate professional.  So, we have partnered with The CE Shop and On Course Learning for all of your online real estate continuing education course needs as well online continuing education for appraisers and pre-licensure courses.  Please see the helpful links at the bottom of this page.
