AREC Instructor Training – August 28, 2015

Mark Barker With pass rates declining on the AMP real estate exam, instructors keep asking "Why? We haven't changed our material or teaching approach but pass rates continue to fall." Mark Barker DREI, owner of Career Education Systems in Kansas City and founder of ExamSmart has answers that should help any instructor raise license exam pass rates quickly and easily. Mark has impressive pass rates for two different exam providers (including AMP) based on his location teaching prelicense courses in two different states.

If you have not changed your material significantly from what you taught four years ago, your students may be walking into the exam unprepared and you might not even know it. If you are using the same teaching approach as four years ago, that could also be part of your students' problem. We will analyze what topics you should consider adding into your course and, even more importantly, what topics you need to remove. This course will deal with the material/questions you use PLUS the way you are teaching it. Mark will show you how to incorporate new material, throw out old material that is no longer being tested, and teach it using the same techniques taught in the DREI (Distinguished Real Estate Instructor) program. This will be very beneficial as AMP is in the process of using a new job analysis survey to update information used on the examination.
