Ready yourself for the demands of the Commercial Real Estate profession and know best practices, with ICBR’s Commercial Real Estate Certificate Program

Keeping with its mission to be Indiana’s leader in Commercial Real Estate education, ICBR has launched the Commercial Real Estate Certificate Program.

The Commercial Real Estate Certificate program was designed to bridge the gap between standard pre-licensing education and commercial designations, and provide an entry-level look at the commercial real estate industry. This program offers a comprehensive curriculum spanning the industry, and is ideal for professionals new to/wanting to begin their commercial real estate career or even seasoned individuals looking for a refresher.

Courses are open to anyone, but those wishing to complete the certificate program must meet the following requirements:

  • Successfully complete all 6 mandatory classes
  • Take a comprehensive exam consisting of 60 questions with a passing grade of 75%+
  • Visit the program details link for the complete list of requirements

In addition to counting toward the certificate’s completion, each course qualifies for two hours of continuing education for Indiana licensed brokers. The 2 day program will be offered once per year. Classes are not currently offered online at this time.

Important Note: The Commercial Real Estate Certificate program will award a certificate of completion upon 1) completion of all 6 courses and 2) passing the exam. This program does not award a commercial designation (i.e. CRE, SIOR, CCIM, CPM, etc.) and will not qualify for pre or post licensing education. Additionally, the program is not a substitute for broker licensure. One broker’s license is issued in the state of Indiana by the PLA/IN Real Estate Commission and is valid to practice both commercial and residential real estate. If you are unlicensed and looking to earn an IN Real Estate Brokers’ license, please view this guide from the IN Association of Realtors.
