Real Estate Pre-Licensing

This is the required course you need in preparation to become a “provisional broker.” This course covers basic real estate principles and practices, including real estate law, contracts, brokerage practices, financing, closing, valuation, fair housing, property management, taxation, and mathematics as well as other related topics.

To qualify for the in-class final exam, students must have a combined average score of 80 percent on the three mini-exams given during class. The student can then take the final exam, and if they pass this, they are eligible to take the North Carolina Real Estate Commission exam that is required to become a licensed real estate broker.

There is a $175.00 registration fee for this course. We will be offering the class on Mondays and Wednesdays from 8:30-11:30 a.m. at South Campus beginning on January 23. The book used is Modern Real Estate Practices in North Carolina, Edition 8. We also offer post-licensing courses as well as Continuing Education courses for real estate professionals. Please check our website for all classes: http://www.rccc.edu/certifications/real-estate-licensure-courses/.

Pharmacy Technician

The pharmacy technician program at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College provides the technical and practical training to allow the graduate to work as an assistant to a licensed pharmacist in both retail and hospital settings. The course also prepares the student to take the National Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam given by the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board. Classes consist of lecture, multimedia, discussion, text and workbook assignments, independent research, and tests of competency and understanding.

You must have completed the North Carolina Career Readiness Certification before beginning the pharmacy technician program (http://www.rccc.edu/workforce/north-carolina-career-readiness-certification/). The career readiness program and tests assess basic academic skills and are usually offered at no charge.

Monday nights from February 4 – May 29, 2013 from 6-9 p.m. The cost is $175 and there are two books (Pharmacy Calculations and workbook by Ballington) and a calculator needed for this class. This class is a hybrid class so students only attend the first 10 weeks in the classroom and will complete one to two assignments each week online.
