Quick Program Facts

Program Description

Enrolling in our real estate program is your first step toward getting your Real Estate Salesperson License.

How the Program Works

  • Course content is delivered by computer.
    Homework and testing take place in an instructional lab on Northeast Campus or at the Haltom City Northeast Center. The instructor is not in the lab. You can reach your instructor via myTCC, email or telephone.
  • You must go to the lab. No exceptions.
    Lab time must be logged for you to complete the course and receive your certificate. The real estate courses are not like distance learning courses because you must be in the lab. You can view the materials at home, but that time spent is not counted towards your required 30 hours.
  • You need to work 6 hours per week in the lab to get the 30 hours.
    Plan on up to 3 visits to the lab per week.
  • You are responsible for making sure all your lab time is logged by the attendant.
    Please note that the attendant will not be able to answer questions about your course material. You will be working on your own.
  • The classes require time, homework, reading and hands-on assignments.
    You could be ready in 6 months because the classes move fast. The time you spend studying for class prepares you for the state exam.
  • You are responsible for getting the correct textbook from the TCC Bookstore.
