Education Overview

Each year Orange County REALTORS® offers over 300 real estate-related classes to keep our members a step ahead. Here you’ll find information on how to sign up for classes and seminars, how to renew your license and meet continuing education requirements, and how to take advantage of professional development opportunities that will expand your expertise as a real estate practitioner.

Attendance Policy

Reservations for Orange County REALTORS®-sponsored courses that require payment will not be processed until payment is received. All members are encouraged to register for Orange County REALTORS®-sponsored classes and special events through My Account. The importance of online registration is four-fold:

  1. Detailed information about course instructors is provided online. Not all classes held at Orange County REALTORS®' offices are sponsored by Orange County REALTORS®—you may be required to register though another provider. In this case, My Account will give you that individual’s or company’s contact information to accomplish this.

  2. The most current class information is available only online. If a course is sold out, you’ll see it listed as “full.”  Or, if it is cancelled, you will be notified electronically.

  3. Registering online is the easiest way to pay for classes and will ensure you have a confirmed spot—especially when our phone lines are busy or you would like to register on the weekend!

  4. Orange County REALTORS®' No-Show Policy applies to most classes. When you register online, you are presented with a notice that failure to cancel within a specified time-frame will incur a $20 penalty. Online registration allows us to plan ahead for adequate seating and order materials for you, if needed. Remember, when you are a “no-show” you may be preventing another member from attending a desired class.

If you must cancel or reschedule your reservation (and you’ve already paid for the class), a refund may be issued if notification is received by email or in writing prior to the start of the class. Please contact Education Director, Cassie Cardenas via email: [email protected]. Sorry, cancellations involving a refund request cannot be accepted over the phone.

If you’ve registered for a free Orange County REALTORS®-Sponsored class, you may be able to cancel your registration online via My Account.

Orange County REALTORS® reserves the right to cancel or reschedule any course. If cancellation occurs, Orange County REALTORS® will issue a full refund. In the case that a course is rescheduled, Orange County REALTORS® will send you immediate notification and transfer your reservation (including payments) to the new date. If the new date does not work for your schedule, you will be issued a full refund.
