I’ve just gotten everything together for the start of another session of the Georgia Real Estate Prelicense Course and thought I’d share some thoughts as I prepare to meet my next batch of candidates for Georgia licensure.
Each term, I get to meet a new batch of students typically ranging in age from as young as seventeen (yes!) to well past sixty! Just starting out in life, making mid-life career shifts to starting something fresh in retirement, I get to meet and work with a wide range of people with even wider ranges of backgrounds and experiences.
So, tonight is Orientation and I have a lot to cover with our students as we embark on this twelve week journey to prepare them for their state license exam and a future as small business owners/independent contractor in the field of real estate!
Our course has a lot of different components to it which is why the Orientation is so important. Not only are there school policies and procedures to review, there are other elements to the course that I have set in place to provide our students with as many tools as I can to help them get the most of the learning experience from a designated class website where all the course material is posted, online quiz taking, and even Quizlet integration for working on terms & definitions.
Once class begins, it goes fast and there’s a lot of material to cover. We instructors like to use the expression ‘drinking out of a firehose’ because sometimes, that’s how it feels. We have twelve weeks to cover a lot of material so it’s a pretty wild ride! But at the end, it’s a satisfying one because our students are armed with the best tool they can have in beginning their new career: a sound knowledge base!
