If knowledge is power, then the world of CIPS designees represents unlimited opportunities. The path starts with fundamental, indispensable education.
CIPS Designation Coursework
Before earning the CIPS designation, agents must complete a comprehensive five-course curriculum and document their international real estate experience.
Once you become a CIPS designee, you have immediate access to numerous exclusive business-enhancing resources—and gain the status that accompanies this internationally recognized credential.
Note that the CIPS designation is not an international real estate license. But joining this prestigious network can open the door to exciting and rewarding real estate opportunities worldwide.
