The Buffalo Niagara Association of REALTORS® have partnered with The CE Shop, the leader in online real estate education. We are excited to co-sponsor the online pre-licensing course. The 75-hour New York State License online interactive course that teaches you everything you need to obtain your New York real estate license. It fulfills the state’s pre-licensing requirements and prepares you for the state exam. The inquiry based scenarios helps the student relate to on-the-job situations, better preparing them for their new career.
The CE Shop also offers Continuing Education programs!!! That's why we've partnered with The CE Shop--to give our students more flexibility and control over how to obtain and continue a real estate license.
