Suggested student fee structure:

Your organization can set the price that it charges students (if any). We suggest that you set the price high enough to cover PLN’s charges and the cost of the facilities. You can also set different prices that allow your organization’s members a discounted price. For example, you can charge your members $50 and nonmembers $60 for Real Estate Continuing Education.


To schedule a class, please call Jacqueline Austin with the following information:

-- The instructor you wish to have teach your class (if there are more than one);

-- A couple of dates you are interested in having the class (the more advance notice you give us, the more likely we can accommodate your first choice); and

-- The name, address, phone number and e-mail address of the contact person for class set-up.


Once a date has been confirmed with your organization and the instructor, we will add your class to our schedule of classes that is sent to real estate licensees and posted on our Web site (you may request that your class not be added to this list if you do not want to advertise the class for people outside your of organization).
