At Purvis Real Estate Training Institute we know that each student learns differently and that we all have busy schedules and time commitments. Individual preferences, schedules and learning styles are why we offer our pre-licensing courses in both 11-Day Classroom/Correspondence format courses as well as Internet/Correspondence courses. Classroom course packages are $999. Internet course packages are $599 for eBook/PDF book courses or $699 for packages with printed student manuals.

Classroom & Independent Study/Correspondence Courses

Purvis Real Estate Training Institute is Texas Real Estate Commission accredited,  Real Estate Proprietary School #558. Through an agreement with Sam Houston State University, TREC Provider #215, we offer classroom format live instruction courses at our classroom facility in Fort Worth. The classroom format features a condensed version of instruction and course content, which is particularly appropriate for students who benefit from a structured learning environment and those who benefit from the opportunity to interact with instructors and other students. The classroom format instruction is 11 days in the classroom and another 7-10 days for correspondence/home study projects. Class is Monday thru Friday from 9 am to 5 pm. Our next session starts on July 24 and ends August 14, 2017...

For the traditional student, the classroom/correspondence course is the most learner-friendly format for learning and comprehension. The course presentation consists of classroom training in an intense 11 day program. Beginning with our September 11, 2017 start date, the program features 90 hours of classroom-oriented presentations, Monday thru Friday, September 11 - 15, September 18 - 22 and October 2. In order to satisfy new TREC education standards that are effective September 1, there will be additional independent study time for course quizzes and final exams during the week of September 25 thru 29.

Due to the condensed nature of the blended classroom/correspondence presentation, some students choose to split the training program into two one week classroom format sessions and one week of independent/correspondence format study.  For example, you can attend the first week of class from September 11 thru September 15, the second week of class from October 30 thru November 3, and the final day of class on November 13, 2017.



Instructors are experienced educators and real estate practitioners who are knowledgeable about the TREC/Pearson Vue licensing exam and are dedicated to teaching important examination and TREC required concepts.

  • Students benefit from the opportunity to engage in dialogue with instructors and other students.
  • Students benefit from the ability to ask individual questions in person and receive immediate feedback from the instructors.
  • Students benefit from having structured course completion date and specific time allotments per subject.
  • Students benefit from the final day of class that is a summary of the content from the entire classroom segment of training.
  • Students have the option to take self-paced courses, rather than the 11 day classroom training with additional home/independent study requirements. 

Internet Correspondence Courses

The Purvis curriculum for internet/online courses is offered through a partnership agreement with and CE Source. TREC accredits the courses as   "Correspondence" format. Students who are motivated self-starters and those who want to study at their own pace are well-suited to online learning. You must wait at least 3 days before from the day you start a course until the day you take the final exam. TREC will reject your course completion certificates if you finish each course in less than three days and the entire 180 hour course requirements in less than 18 days. The 3 day minimum completion time is a new TREC rule. Please be very careful to follow this new rule. 

If you prefer completing your course work outside the classroom, you have a choice of PDF format and BOOK FORMAT internet-based courses. These two formats are the quickest and easiest to complete. Course completion times vary from student to student, and is influenced by the speed at which you read and how quickly you understand the subject matter, as well as your computer skills. When it is convenient for you and your schedule, you take a pre-assessment at the beginning of the course and then read the chapter text/content.  When three days have passed from your course start date, you may take the 60 question, multiple choice format, final exam. 

"Print Format" Correspondence Courses
