WHY WREI?

 

We have more National Exam testing experience than any other Wyoming real estate school.

ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

REGULATED AND LICENSED BY THE WYOMING DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION

 

PURPOSE AND PHILOSOPHY

The purpose of the Institute is threefold:

1. To provide students with a comprehensive introduction to the 

field of real estate.

2. To increase the knowledge and competency of those already 

working in the industry.

3. To meet the Wyoming Real Estate Commission educational requirements and the highest degree of excellence and performance.

Although most students attend the Institute to provide themselves with a comprehensive understanding of real estate practice and law necessary to pass the State Licensing Examinations, our courses are beneficial to anyone interested in real estate as a career. We teach more than is necessary to simply pass the State Examination.

The philosophy of the Institute is that education should be stimulating, informative and enjoyable. We have mastered the innovative TCD method of learning. The TCD method involves taking tests, correcting the tests item by item with the student, and finally, discussing fully the areas which are unclear to the student. Class time is not spent listening to lectures covering material with which the student is already familiar. Rather, the time is allocated to areas the student is unfamiliar with or finds difficult.

Through our TCD method, exam fear is eliminated and the student's interest is constantly stimulated, resulting in a high degree of learning and retention of course material.

Our educational philosophy spells success 

for you as a student and as a practitioner.

 

HISTORY OF THE INSTITUTE

 

The Wyoming Real Estate Institute is wholly owned by ABC Realty Company located in Sheridan, Wyoming. The TCD teaching methods of programmed instruction designed for superior retention of the material offered, were introduced in Wyoming in 1964 by WREI. Courses using these methods have been offered continuously since that time by WREI.

INSTITUTE POLICIES

 

ABSENCES - Absences will not be excused by the Institute. For the student to earn his Certificate of Completion, he must make up any missed classes.

CLASS CUTS - Any class cuts by a student will be treated as unexcused absences.

LEAVE OF ABSENCE - Any leave of absence must be approved by the Institute. For the student to earn his Certificate of Completion, he must make up any missed classes.

STUDENT PROGRESS - Student progress is measured in terms of attendance and grades on written tests.

ATTENDANCE POLICY - Attendance of all class hours is required. A student who misses any class session will be dismissed from the course unless the session is made up. Any instructor may arrange for a student to make up a missed session through attendance at a like session. A dismissed student may re-enter the next scheduled course at no additional charge or receive a refund in accordance with the

Institute's Refund Policy. 

TARDINESS - Students should plan to arrive at least ten minutes prior to each session of class. Any student who is late to a session by ten minutes or more will receive one hour less attendance toward total hours of the course.

MEASUREMENT AND EVALUATION - Student progress is based on graded written tests given throughout each course. The overall grade for a course is the average of all test grades achieved during the course. Grades are recorded by instructors in the student's permanent records, and each student receives notification shortly after each test is administered. A student who maintains less than a 65% average on written tests may be dismissed from the course at the discretion of the Institute. A dismissed student may re-enter the next scheduled course at no additional charge or receive a refund in accordance with the Institute's Refund Policy.

 

GRADING SYSTEM


Excellent 90% - 100% (A)
Very Good 80% - 89% (B)
Satisfactory 75% - 79% (C)
Unsatisfactory 74% and Below (Failing)

 

PROBATION POLICY - The Institute has no probation policy in view of the brevity of its courses.

STUDENT CONDUCT - Students who are not serious about obtaining high quality real estate education should not enroll in the Institute. Students who do not conduct themselves as adults or disrupt classes in any way may be dismissed from class and will only be readmitted after review of the situation by the Institute. Students not readmitted will receive a refund in accordance with the Institute's Refund Policy.

PERMANENT RECORDS - Permanent records will be kept by the Institute of all contracts, attendance, progress and test grades relating to the individual student.

TESTING - Our method of instruction is a process of continual testing, correcting and discussion (TCD). Tests are given each class session. This method is very successful because it concentrates on what the student does not know rather than on what the student already knows. The TCD method saves time and allows more material to be covered during class.

CREDIT FOR PREVIOUS EDUCATION - The Institute will review and evaluate previous real estate education of the student and , if such education meets or exceeds the educational requirements of the state law, the Institute will give credit for such education toward the Institute's Certificate of Completion.

HOLIDAYS - Holidays observed during the year are Independence Day, Christmas, Thanksgiving, Labor Day, Memorial Day and New Year's Day. If a class falls on one of these holidays, the class will be rescheduled.

PLACEMENT ASSISTANCE - Many students request placement assistance and, although placement is not guaranteed, the Institute has most often been successful in helping students find employment. In this endeavor, the Institute maintains a file of letters from brokers seeking salespersons.
