The course for real estate licensure, and license renewal, commonly called “the Diplomado,” is finally coming to Puerto Peñasco!  The class, conducted by A.M.P.I. Chapter 51, Puerto Peñasco, will be held on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 8 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. for 4 consecutive weeks, starting on February 14, 2012.  The dates are as follows:  February 14, 15, and 16; February 21, 22, and 23; February 28, 29, and March 1;  March 6, 7, and 8.


Classes will be taught in either English or Spanish, depending upon the language of the instructor, and a certified simultaneous translator will be on hand so that every student will be able to benefit from the knowledge of the instructors, each of whom is a subject matter expert.


Students taking the course for new licenses will be expected to attend every class; no make-up sessions are planned.  Students for license renewal are required to attend the 8-hour module on ethics, to be taught on February 14, and then may select any other 12 hours of instruction to attend.


The cost of the course is $5,400 pesos or $450 dollars for A.M.P.I. members, and $7,200 pesos or $600 dollars for non-members.  Registration and payment in full must be received no later than February 9, 2012.  Payment may be in cash or by check (Mexican checks for pesos, USA checks for dollars), and must be made entirely in one denomination or the other; payment partly in pesos and partly in dollars will not be accepted.
