CRGAR Institutes – CIPS
CRGAR Certified REALTOR® Training
CRGAR offers its official training classes for Certified Realtor members twice each calendar year, usually April and November/December. Regular locations include Flamingo and Jaco. The classes are taught in English by Costa Rican attorneys from BLP Abogados.
All CRGAR-Certified Realtor members are required to take the classes, their first time, within 12 months of initial acceptance. All current CRGAR-Certified Realtor members are required to retake the classes every 5 years, as content and industry knowledge is updated. Classes require 2 full, consecutive days of attendance. (Curriculum may be updated for 2017, and may add to the attendance requirement)
CRGAR will offer the next session of required classes later this year. Send your interest in being added to the waiting list to email@example.com. Class fees will be announced with the final schedule.
Required CRGAR REALTOR® classes include:
Basic Legal Guidelines for Your Real Estate Career
In addition to our program of required and elective classes, CRGAR offers seminars in areas of professional interest. These may be held in a classroom setting, or arranged privately. Currently, we offer an Immigration Overview and instruction in the use of the Costa Rica MLS. Please send your interest to firstname.lastname@example.org.
CRGAR Institutes – CIPS
Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS) is a special designation of the National Association of Realtors (NAR) in the United States. It is an indication of your professional commitment to understand and pursue international real estate business from wherever you choose to work. CRGAR is proud to be one of the few international sponsors of a CIPS Training Institute each year, as a Bi-Lateral Partner of NAR.
CRGAR’s 2017 Institute will be its 6th consecutive offering, and is scheduled for July 3-7, 2017, in Flamingo, Costa Rica. CRGAR adds to the CIPS curriculum by welcoming lunch speakers covering a variety of topics related to living, working, and investing in Costa Rica, as well as guided tours of properties and developments in the area. You will also be given chances to network with CRGAR members.
Extend your stay on either side of the institute dates to enjoy a “CIPS Designation Vacation!” CRGAR will help you plan your trip.
