RISMEDIA, March 7, 2007-Speaking to nearly 6,000 RE/MAX affiliates at the 2007 International Convention, Co-Founder and Chairman Dave Liniger announced that "the best training regimen in the real estate industry just got better." To meet the needs of today's real estate professionals, RE/MAX University has been created to deliver education via four media; 24/7 training Internet on-demand, live classrooms, and satellite broadcasts.
Originating from the recently unveiled RE/MAX Global Education Center in Denver, RE/MAX University combines all previous training resources along with newly developed technologies in one all-encompassing organization. The Global Education center contains training classrooms, a 100 seat high-tech amphitheater, several video edit suites, and a television production center, all connected to the world via optical fiber and satellite technology. The Center, also boasts state-of-the-art A/V and projection technologies, computer workstations for all students, and special booths for simultaneous language translation during international broadcasts.
Mike Ryan, senior vice president of Media and Training, said, "Newly created 24/7, management and agent on demand Internet components feature, extensive digital libraries stored at the Global Education Center. This media can be accessed by any of our membership, anywhere in the world from not only their computers but also iPodsTM, MP3's, and the soon-to-be released iPhonesTM. The archives are also available to RE/MAX members on DVD."
RE/MAX Satellite Network, (RSN) the first and still the only proprietary broadcast network in the industry, will be a key component of the new University. The award winning network broadcasts 60 hours per month to nearly 90,000 RE/MAX associates in homes and commercial offices across North America on DISH Network. Over 30,000 associates have successfully completed National Association of Realtors, professional designation, continuing education, and certification courses via distance learning.
Liniger strongly believes that education is a key component to better serving buyers and sellers during an increasingly complicated transaction process.
Liniger said, "RE/MAX sales associates already have more experience and professional designations than those of any organization in this industry. Now, RE/MAX University will ensure that our professional associates will have instantaneous access to the most advanced educational tools."
