Education and training cost a lot of money. There is cost for the classroom, material cost, instructor cost, and lost of productivity. A few years back, I saw many companies promoting their training as a special benefit for recruiting. Many of these offices have cut down or eliminated the training programs since. It could be that it might be cheaper to send the agents to other real estate trainings from Mike Ferry or Brian Buffinni at about $300 per event or once the agent get trained, they go to a different office for other trainings?
For the last few weeks I have been working on training materials for the office. It then came to my mind that if the agents switch to my office for training, wouldn't they switch to another office if the company offer better training? It could also be that once the agents get trained, they leave and start their own office and compete against their previous company. Would then it be less trouble for offices to stop offerring training internally?
