CRS 206 Technology vs. ePro accreditation

By
Real Estate Agent with Atlanta Communities Real Estate Brokerage 291660

I'll start off stating, this is my first attempt at blogging, so bear with me. I'm not even sure if I'm blogging or not.

 Recenly I started on the path to achieving my CRS accreditation and thoroughly enjoyed the first class, CRS 201. As you all know there are a series of classes one must take to complete the educational requirements for this designation. And that is what has brought me to this site for guidance. I am atttempting to find out if the ePro classes would be more useful than taking the CRS 206 Technology course.  Perhaps I am not comparing apples to apples and therein lies the problem, but I don't know enough to know if that is the case. If anyone has any thoughts about this, could you please advise me.  Thank you for your time.  Sheila Malloy, RE/MAX Greater Atlanta

Great Question. I am an ePRO Trainer. It is much like comparing apples to oranges because the CRS Class is like a one day class, whereas the ePRO is 20-30 hours of work. The cool thing, though is that the ePRO is good for an elective towards your CRS, but you will learn lots more! And, if you'd like a $25 discount...go here!  There is also a nice video on that link telling you more about the course

Thank you so much for clearing that up for me,  I didn't realize the ePro was good for an elective towards the CRS. I look forward to taking the class and thanks for the $25 coupon-off for it.

Sheila,

Welcome to blogging.

I am a State CRS president,  CRS is the designation which started my success in real estate.   I would recommend any CRS class, they are all exceptional.  I have not done the 206 for many years though so I can not give specifics. 

visit www.CRS.com to check up where classes are held. I recommend CRS210 referrals!

Thank you Guy,  I feel very confident that CRS accreditation is the way to go as well.  I will continue to pursue the other courses necessary to that end.  I think that I probably will benefit best, by taking the ePro class and then the other CRS classes for buyers, sellers, etc. This way I will be up on state of the art technology and its ability to facilitate me with all I will learn fronm the CRS classes.  Thank you again so much for your input and advice.  Stay cool in this heat!  Sheila Malloy

I did the e-PRO class. It was great and I don't have to pay a fee every year just to say that I am e-PRO certified.

Thanks, Jen,  I did the e-Pro class and feel that I got alot out of it.  Still striving for my CRS accrditation, missing the 202 class and then I'll be done.   good luck,

e-Pro is what you make of it. I feel that the Internet is a constant learning process. I have to be right on top of it or zoom ... your behind.
