Course details

This Ramp-Up course is ideally completed approximately one month prior to term one start, after acceptance into the Advanced Diploma in Professional Real Estate program. This course is intended to introduce you to three basic knowledge areas that will be essential to your building the efficiency and productivity necessary to harvest the learning in the coming three terms in the Advanced Professional Real Estate Program. Firstly, in the Technology court your individual competencies working with Microsoft Word, Excel, and Powerpoint will be honed and tested. Secondly, you will become competent using four of the most common collaborative digital tools, including Adobe Acrobat, MS Office 365, Goggle Docs, and Docusign. Thirdly, you will engage in a basic business math, and English composition refresher, complemented by introduction to our presentation skills template, which will be the only one we use through the three terms. This final knowledge area will include a refresher in accounting basics including the most common accounting statements used in the real estate industry.
