ARTI Academics Offers First Real Estate Education Licensing App

ARTI Academics goes Mobile!

ARTI Academics offers first real estate education licensing app.

Learning about real estate and obtaining a license just became a whole lot easier with the release of the industry’s first mobile app, according to internal research. Released by education leader, ARTI Academics, the mobile app is now available for download on phones and tablets for Android and Apple devices. It is tailored for the public and real estate students who seek coursework for Utah and Nevada.

In addition to providing the ARTI Academics app and education offerings 100% free, the school provides students with study guides, practice exams, certified coaches and personalized service at no cost.

Regarding this new initiative, Director of Education, Dr. Amanda Wickra, Ed.D said, “Within just over a year since we offered our first course, ARTI has become the fastest growing and highest rated real estate school in Utah. Our continuing education and pre-licensing courses have become the industry standard for high quality content, forward thinking and innovative learning modalities. The ARTI Academics App will further accelerate adoption of our education platform providing additional opportunities for real estate agents to improve their craft and develop new competencies.

Since the school started in 2019, students have completed thousands of continuing education courses. ARTI’s CE offerings include courses focused on marketing, contracts, law, ethics, commercial real estate, luxury, finance and more. New courses continue to be added monthly. Existing real estate agents can complete online state required continuing education coursework in Nevada and Utah through the app.

Prospective real estate agents in Utah can complete all of their 120 hours of pre-licensing education using the mobile app which is integrated with ARTI’s exclusive 100% free online learning platform, which has been approved by the Utah Division of Real Estate. Hundreds have graduated and passed state licensing exams.

Pre-licensing students are assigned their own personal coach who is certified by ARTI Academics to meet the highest standards of excellence and industry experience. Additionally, the certified coach and the director of education communicates regularly with the students to ensure an excellent student-centered learning experience.

Matt Walter, Chief Technology Officer said, “Offering this app is a game changer for real estate professionals and people interested in learning about real estate. Our in-house software and creative teams have done an incredible job taking this from a vision years ago to a first class learning platform.”

Do You Offer Real Estate Broker Licensing Courses?

ARTI Academics sole focus is on helping real estate agents be successful (here's an overview on the difference between a Broker and an Agent). We currently do not offer Real Estate Broker licensing courses.  The reason is because there are relatively few Broker's in real estate compared with Agents. In fact, most people each day helping others buy and sell real estate are Real Estate Agents. That being said, we do offer continuing education courses which are available to agents and brokers alike, of course at no cost. Our real estate school courses are designed with you in mind and really tailored to help you succeed in the business. That's why you notice our course offerings so different from other real estate schools in the marketplace.

Rome wasn't built overnight!

Why Is This Course Required?

In a nutshell, real estate agents need to be better trained on handling various real estate situations that arise. While each real estate transaction is unique, there are various aspects that are similar. Our class ensures that you are familiar with key provisions, areas of concern, misconceptions and scenarios around the Real Estate Purchase Contract. We are excited to begin offering this course in 2019 with plenty of time for you to complete prior to your next renewal.

When Can I Take The Mandatory 3 Hour Residential Course?

This course is currently in the construction phase and will be available to you before the end of 2019. This will provide ample time to complete prior to your renewal in 2020.

Will you be offering the 3 Hour Mandatory Property Management and Commercial Versions of this course?

We offer extensive training in the Property Management and Commercial Real Estate (coming soon) sectors.  That being said, it is not currently in our roadmap to provide the 3 hour mandatory classes. The commercial real estate and property management industries are very niche markets. If property management or commercial real estate is your practice, we recommend taking one of our highly sought after courses.

When Will My Continuing Education (CE) Hours Be Registered With The State?

We know that getting your CE credits registered with the appropriate real estate governing body is very important. We will ensure that you receive credit associated for each continuing education course that you have completed assuming that we have your contact information and License Number. Our school policy is to register CE hours each Monday and Thursday with the appropriate Real Estate division. Most states allow real estate schools up to 10 business days to bank the hours with the Division of Real Estate.

We can only register your course hours if we have your Real Estate License number in your profile settings in ARTI® Academics. If we do not have your real estate license number in the ARTI Academics profile setting, it will delay the processing as we will need to contact you for additional information.
