Principles of Commercial Real Estate is a competency-based course designed for commercial practitioners. This program recognizes the unique requirements of commercial clients and customers in an increasingly sophisticated marketplace. Consumers need, expect, and deserve different perspectives and expertise from commercial practitioners as compared with residential salespeople and brokers.

This course has two underlying, interwoven themes that differentiate this course from previous courses. First, the focus is solely on commercial skill and knowledge with particular regard to acceptable standards and levels of consumer protection expected of salespeople entering this field. Second, discussions, examples, and exercises cover a broad range of sub-specialty areas including office, retail, industrial, multi-residential, and vacant land. This range of information, combined with a broad array of exercises, prepares participants for marketplace challenges, while setting the stage for advanced studies in other commercial programs.
