Our courses are interesting and practical. You will be watching videos rather than reading through endless text.

Keynote courses were built by a REALTOR® Association for REALTOR® Associations. Our courses are approved for continuing education credit in states where a REALTOR® Association has elected to offer them.

Even if Keynote courses are not yet offered for continuing education credit in your state, we encourage you to experience the courses and put the concepts to work in your business.

You may wish to contact your state’s regulatory commission or department that oversees real estate to ask if you would be allowed to individually submit one or more courses for continuing education credit.
