The 75-hour Illinois Real Estate Broker Pre-License Topics course is designed to meet the 75-hour pre-licensing curriculum requirements for real estate brokers as set forth by the state of Illinois. Topics covered are: license law, Illinois law, federal laws, agency relationships and obligations, marketing and advertising, independent contractor/employee agreements, real property, contract knowledge, market analysis and appraisal, financing, retail and office property management, seller relationships and counseling, and buyer relationships and counseling.

The 75-hour pre-licensing course will meet Mondays and Wednesdays beginning Monday, Sept. 12 through Monday, Feb. 13, 2012 from 6 to 9 p.m.

In the 15-hour Illinois Broker Applied Real Estate Principles interactive course, students will participate in five three-hour interactive lessons with the instructor to apply the knowledge learned in the Illinois Real Estate Broker Pre-License Topics course. Each interactive lesson begins with a review of principles, concepts, requirements for compliance and violations, summary of best practices, and/or applicable laws/licensee requirements. Students will then participate in a variety of interactive activities (ex., quizzes, content review exercises, class and small group discussion) where they will apply their knowledge to a variety of real-world scenarios designed to provide valuable analysis and decision-making experience.

The 15-hour interactive course will meet Mondays and Wednesdays beginning Wednesday, Feb. 22 through Monday, March 12, 2012 from 6 to 9 p.m.

Cost for both courses is $525 and includes books. Registration deadline is Sept. 7 and pre-registration is required. To register, call LLCC-Capital City Training Center at 782.7436 or visit www.llcc.edu/cctc.
