Real estate seminars are offered by several institutions including George Mason University and the National Association of Realtors. George Mason University offers seminars in person at its facility in Arlington, Virginia as individual programs and series, states GMU.edu. These courses are designed for real estate professionals and offer advanced training to help agents further their career goals.
George Mason University has a series of seminars called "The Real Estate Seminar Series," which include a series of complementary courses, notes GMU.edu. The series covers a range of real estate topics including enterprise, finance, business development and pursuing a course as an entrepreneur. Some courses, such as finance, break down into specialized sections. Financial training covers principles such as valuing money, the market value of loans and the process of managing risks.
The National Association of Realtors also offers seminars for agents that take place in person and online. As with George Mason University, NAR caters these events to real estate agents looking for advanced career training. Topics covered in NAR seminars range from making a real estate practice more environmentally friendly to understanding real estate law and financial transactions; these seminars can be taken as individual courses or in series packages.
Both institutions grant seminar attendees continuing education credits for participating. These credits may be put towards a certificate, advanced degree or advanced license.
