The Right Education

When you’re starting a new career, education is the first step and choosing the right provider is key.
Here are a few things to look for:

Age of Content & Platform

What To Look For

Content is the key to our success. The real estate market is constantly changing and, if you're not learning based on recent market trends, you'll be outdated before you even get started.

What THE CE Shop Offers

We offer brand new content and frequent updates to our courses on a brand new online learning solution. We want you to learn, grow, and succeed through the most revolutionary ideas and approaches in education.

Money Back Guarantee

What To Look For

You shouldn’t have to pay for something that isn’t right for you. A lot of providers don’t have your best interest in mind and don’t offer a guarantee on their products once a course is started.

What THE CE Shop Offers

We think this one is a no-brainer. We value your time, money, and effort and we prove it through our money back guarantee policy.

Refund Policy

What To Look For

Not able to finish your course? Change your mind? Some providers don’t provide a refund for any reason.

What THE CE Shop Offers

If something in your life has affected your decision to take our course, we respect that, and we’re transparent about how we handle it. Call us about our refund policy.


What To Look For

You have a lot to do and time away from home while commuting to a classroom environment is time that can be better utilized.

What THE CE Shop Offers

One of the greatest advantages of taking your course online is that you can do it whenever it’s convenient for you. Have time first thing in the morning? That’s great. Awake at 2 am? Hop online and start learning!

Online vs. Classroom

What To Look For

If not done well, taking an online course can feel like reading a flat and unengaging textbook online. Classrooms can be inconvenient and only offer one-size-fits-all learning.

What THE CE Shop Offers

Our online learning solution, LEAP, is innovative, new, and delivers content in an engaging and interactive way, helping to better prepare you for your new career.

Pass Rates

What To Look For

Most providers don’t publish their pass rates - and that’s usually for a reason. Knowing their average success rate will help you determine if they're the best choice for you.

What THE CE Shop Offers

We pride ourselves on having one of the highest course pass rates in the industry! Our built-in exam prep is comprehensive and our goal is to enable you to move forward in your career. Learn more*

Education Methods

What To Look For

In this day and age, providers often resort to flat, overwhelming text that lacks context and engagement. That doesn’t sound like a very effective way to learn.

What THE CE Shop Offers

We know you’re striving to be the best. That’s why we designed LEAP with the latest in adult learning science to deliver a revolutionary experience.

Customer Service

What To Look For

The beauty of online education is taking it when the time is right for you – so doesn’t it make sense that customer service should be available then as well? Make sure your provider is available when you need them.

What THE CE Shop Offers

We’re here for you when you need us, 7 days a week, via phone, chat, and email. We look forward to hearing from you!
