Purvis Real Estate Training Institute has been Fort Worth's leader in real estate licensing courses for decades. We are a local, family owned business and are honored to have served our community since 1973. The Institute was started by Lynn Purvis and is operated by Leslie Purvis and her business partner, Terry Dunlap.

At Purvis, we utilize time-proven teaching techniques that are effective for individuals from a variety of professional and educational backgrounds and we do our best to prepare our students for the TREC licensing exam. We are dedicated to serving individuals and professionals with Texas real estate salesperson's licensing courses, Pearson Vue real estate exam preparation and continuing education and real estate broker's licensing courses. We offer different delivery methods for you to complete your courses in an environment and time period that works for you. Whether you take your courses in a classroom, by correspondence, or over the internet, we have a program that fits your needs.

Purvis offers classroom courses in a Fast Track, Live Instruction format through an association agreement with Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas, TREC ID #215. Through our SHSU contract, we are authorized to provide course completion certificates for Fast Track hours rather than actual clock or classroom credit hours. You have the option to create your own training program that combines Fast Track courses with internet and/or correspondence courses. Your course completion certificates will be issued by Sam Houston State University in association with Purvis Real Estate Training Institute.
