Tips for taking one of IAR’s new state-approved interactive webinars

By Carrie Elliott, Education Manager and Matt Brewer, Systems Administrator

Interactive Webinars

The Illinois Association of REALTORS® is revolutionizing our education programs with an alternative classroom format that promises a new appeal for those students who prefer to complete their education in the convenience of their own home or office environment.

Our new WebEx Training programs offer just that and also provide the student with the interaction of an instructor and virtual classmates who are completing the program at the same time.

The webinar environment is not for everyone, but if you think it is a learning method you would like to explore, please review the tips below to see if this program will work for you!

  1. The IAR Licensing & Training Center WebEx training programs work best when you use Internet Explorer for your Internet browser. Do not use Google Chrome.
  2. It’s important to install the WebEx software and test it at least 24 hours prior to the webinar program. You can use this link to test your computer.
  3. The audio will come from your computer, so you will need a microphone and speakers and TEST them prior to joining the webinar. Still have problems with audio? Check your speaker and microphone cables, check your volume and reboot your computer.
  4. After you register for an IAR WebEx Training you will receive four emails leading up to the class. The confirmation email will include your registration ID. The email you receive on the day of your course will come from Innovative exams. This contains a credit to take a test at one of our Kiosk locations. You MUST create an account at Innovative Exams in order to schedule an exam. Instructions will be provided in the Email.

The IAR Licensing & Training Center is your trusted source for state-approved real estate licensing and continuing education. Licensed by the Illinois Department of Financial & Professional Regulation since 1992, the IAR Licensing & Training Center is a name you can trust. www.illinoisrealtor.org/education
