EDISON—TriState REALTORS Commercial Alliance has launched of The Commercial Real Estate School of New Jersey. The school is designed to help brokers meet the state's newly established qualifications for license renewal.

In order to qualify for renewal or to reinstate a license, the New Jersey Real Estate Commission now requires that every broker, salesperson or broker-salesperson complete 12 hours of continuing education by July 1, 2013.

"With the State of New Jersey now requiring brokers to complete 12 hours of continuing education by July of 2013, many brokers are seeking an organization that offers classes specifically geared toward the commercial real estate industry," said Jonathan Glick, TriState's New Jersey vice president. "TriState's school will provide offerings that have been designed to fulfill the Real Estate Commission's requirements. We understand exactly what brokers are looking for in terms of continuing education and have tailored the school's program to meet those needs."

The Commercial Real Estate School of New Jersey will debut on February 28 with "Cost Segregation For The Commercial Broker." Led by instructor Jerry H. Kootman, CPA, of Cost Recovery Solutions LLC, the course will provide attendees with a comprehensive tutorial on how to use cost segregation analysis to create more value for their client base. The three-hour Mandatory Continuing Education (MCE) elective course will be held at the New Jersey Expo Center, 97 Sunfield Avenue in Edison. Enrollment for this special event is free for TriState members and $25 for all other members of the commercial real estate community.
