STRIVING TO BE THE LEADER
OAR strives to be the market leader in Oregon real estate education by providing the highest value business, legal, and legislative information for continuing education and professional development of our members.
Professional Development is generally classified as any training or education that doesn't qualify for Continuing Education credit through the Oregon Real Estate Agency (OREA) but is still a valuable skill or asset to have as a real estate professional, business owner, or sales person. Continuing Education courses are defined as classes that meet the OREA standards for CE and thus can be used to fulfill your licensing requirements.
We at OAR offer many professional development courses to continually build upon your knowledge base as sales and management real estate professionals. These can include leadership courses, tech seminars, motivational speakers, designations, etc.
We’re in the process of creating a "Build Your Business" resource center with monthly webinars geared towards improving your business and other resources! We're still working out the details, but be sure to keep an eye out for more information.
OAR offers CE throughout the year in various locations across the State. We aim to hold at least one webinar a month that brings timely information impacting your business. In 2016, we are bringing back the GRI after a hiatus. That will include all new OAR core courses and designations offered locally, all across the state! We have 12 new OAR courses that count for CE and GRI credit. The courses can be taken if you would like to earn the GRI designation OR simply learn important real estate business and earn CE credit. Check out the calendar for current courses.
