BIG NEWS: The CAM license course at LarsonEd is now approved for real estate CE

We’ve got BIG NEWS

We just received word from the Florida DBPR that our 16-Hour Community Association Manager (CAM) Pre-License Course is now approved for 8 hours of specialty real estate continuing education credit (FREC #0022681).

That means that students with a Florida real estate license can now simultaneously get their CAM license and complete part of their real estate CE requirement*. There is no extra tuition charge for doing this with LarsonEd. The CAM license course is still $289 whether you need the real estate CE or not. What a great deal!

*CE credit cannot be applied to a CAM class that has already been attended. Credit can only be applied to CAM classes taken AFTER 10/14/19.

About Larson Educational Services:

Family-owned and operated Larson Educational Services has had its doors open in Fort Myers since November 2008, but the beginnings of the business date back to the 1970’s.

Rick Larson, Larson Educational Services co-founder and manager, opened a real estate education company in 1979 in St. Paul, Minnesota, called PROSOURCE Educational Services. The business grew to include real estate, mortgage, appraisal, insurance, securities, contractor, home inspection and computer education.

In 2001, Rick, along with his partner, Joe Coyne, sold the business to Kaplan Professional Schools, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Washington Post.

He and his instructors have assisted more than 500,000 professionals to pass their exams and achieve their career goals in real estate, real estate appraisal, residential construction, insurance and mortgage loan origination.

In 2007, two of Rick’s five sons, David and Brad Larson, approached Rick and talked of starting up a family-owned education company. The only place they talked of operating the business was in Southwest Florida where they had spent countless winter breaks vacationing from school.

After finding a great location to build two classrooms in Royal Palm Square Shopping Center in Fort Myers in early 2008, Larson Educational Services offered its first Florida Real Estate Licensing class in November 2008, and has since added many new classes and has become very involved in all of the Southwest Florida communities. In March 2010, the Larson’s expanded by adding an additional classroom location at Horseshoe Park of Commerce in Naples, just North of the Naples Municipal Airport, and in February 2011, the Larson’s began offering courses in Sarasota at the Hyatt Place, across the street from the Sarasota Bradenton International Airport. In August 2015, a brand new Naples-based facility was constructed at Marquesa Plaza at the intersection of Livingston and Pine Ridge Rd.
