June 11, 2018 (Chicago) – The Realtors® Land Institute (RLI), an affiliate of the National Association of Realtors®, is proud to announce a record-setting number of land real estate professionals in attendance at their annual LANDU Education Week. Fifty attendees from fourteen states gathered in Arlington, TX, last week to gain top-notch expertise through RLI’s Land University (LANDU) Education Program. Twenty-one of those students completed all six courses being offered towards the elite Accredited Land Consultant (ALC) Designation.
“We couldn’t be happier with the turn out or more excited to be getting so much great feedback about our newly updated courses, especially as this is the 30th anniversary of RLI’s Land University (LANDU) Education Program. We are so proud of all the students that took a valuable step towards furthering themselves as industry experts by coming out to complete the course work,” said RLI CEO Aubrie Kobernus, MBA, RCE.
Attendee Greg Good, Agent, Clift Land Brokers / Clift Land Auctions, said “The week was intense but the classes move quickly with excellent instructors engaging each class. I thoroughly enjoyed the courses and the opportunity to meet and connect with other students within our industry from across the country. It’s well worth the time and investment.”
LANDU Education Week attendees were among the first to experience the newly updated courses which feature increased attendee interaction as well as new takeaway resources that will help them to implement the expertise they have gained after returning to their businesses. By the end of this year, RLI’s education program overhaul will include updating a total of ten courses with fresh, relevant content and the addition of a Recreational Land Real Estate course to meet the changing needs of land professionals in the industry.
Newly updated courses that were offered at the 2018 LANDU Education Week included Land 101: Fundamentals of Land Brokerage; Land Investment Analysis; Transitional Land Real Estate; Tax Deferred 1031 Exchanges; and Real Estate Mapping Technologies & Techniques.
