Quality Standards, Tools & Methods

Quality is not just about products but the quality of how you manage and improve your business process. Customers are more demanding and companies are losing billions due to quality and process problems. Quality, or the absence of it, has a strategic impact on the organization. Consumers buy certain products and request services based on their knowledge and perception of the organization and what it provides. Accumulated experiences and perceptions of customers ultimately make or break an organization. Learn the tools to exceed your customer's requirements, expectations, and preferences!

Real Estate

If you consider yourself goal-oriented, persevering, self-motivated and people-oriented, then real estate might be the career for you! Real estate offers one of the broadest ranges of career options in the workplace today - agents, brokers, property managers, and home inspectors.

Prepare yourself for licensure exams. Partnering with Fortune Academy, we offer Pre-Licensing, Advanced Principles in Real Estate, Broker, Property Management, Home Inspection, and Mandatory Continuing Education courses that will help jump-start or enhance your career in the real estate industry. Materials are included in the course fee. State Exam fees and other industry required fees are not included.

Starting January 1, 2017, the Provisional License will no longer be available. In order to apply for a license, each student must take all 90 hours, including Real Estate First Year Sales (Pre-Licensing) and Advanced Principles in Real Estate (formerly Post Licensing.) Students will be able to take and pass the state exam, but will not receive the license until they have completed the Advanced Principles course, which consists of the same 5 modules as Post Licensing did: Agency, Contracts, Ethics, Measurements, and Fair Housing.

The new 10 hour MCE requirement will not be effective until July 1, 2017. Anyone whose license expires June 30, 2017, will only be required to take 8 hours.

For more information, please contact Jessica Allendorf at or by calling (864) 250-8183. For regulatory information, you may also contact our partner training provider, Fortune Academy, at (800) 922-2245.
