Office of Real Estate Training Academy

All Real Estate Academy classes have been cancelled and will be rescheduled at later date.



During 2020 the Office of Real Estate Administration will offer eighteen basic and advanced level courses as part of the regular program. Each training program is prepared and offered with the intention of achieving the following objectives:
1) provide cross-training opportunities for all current staff
2) provide a well-rounded program for new employees
3) provide courses in each right of way discipline to enhance performance of current duties.
4) provide right of way consultants with specific Ohio and ODOT rules for the right of way acquisitions process.
The classroom phase of the training program consists of lectures, problem solving, case studies, role-playing and the liberal use of audiovisual aids. To encourage greater student-instructor interaction and class participation, most courses are limited to 26 students. Student comprehension in all basic real estate related programs is measured by examinations, completion of assigned problems and class participation.
Supplemental programs, seminars and sponsored courses will be announced on an individual basis.
For further information regarding the training program and\or any person requiring a reasonable accommodation during training (i.e., audio, visual or mobile) should contact Stephanie Castner (614) 466-7490 prior to class date so appropriate arrangements can be made.
Prior to attending a course, please download your course's training manual. Bring the course manual download with you electronically or as a hard copy. No printed training manuals will be supplied at the course location.
