It is impossible to replicate the rich learning experience of the classroom through a Online program and a computer screen. The Professional Career Center has been training New York Real Estate Professionals in our classroom for over 25 years at the same Syracuse, New York location. The ability to ask questions and participate in classroom discussions can not be replicated through email or chat. Our instructors are experienced New York licensed Real Estate professionals. They use their real life experiences (in New York Appraisal) to bring the curriculum alive for better understanding and a livelier presentation. Many online programs feature experienced instructors…in most cases, that experience wasn’t from practice in New York.
