Get Your Hawaii Real Estate License
IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT OUR LIVE PRELICENSING CLASSES
We know how important it is for to you to be able to get your real estate license. Government COVID-19 virus concerns for safety including extending quarantine, masking, and social distancing, are requiring us to hold our live classes in a LIVE ZOOM format. We held our first ZOOM Sales class in April 2020 and a Brokers ZOOM Prelicensing class in May 2020, continuing throughout the year. We are excited now through ZOOM to be able to offer these prelicensing courses to all who wish to receive their prelicensing education, regardless of wherever you live!
The ZOOM classes are conducted as we do in our classroom, the major difference is that the students engage with the instructor as well as fellow students, live via ZOOM, video conferencing instead of together in a classroom. PowerPoint presentations and discussion highlight the classes. All the students need is a computer with a camera. Textbooks are provided. Thank you for your interest in real estate education offered by Carol Ball School of Real Estate.
