Georgia continuing education- real estateCertified International Property Specialist courses (CIPS)
CIPS Certification

In order to receive your CIPS designation, the Essentials of International Real Estate is a prerequisite introductory course to the CIPS international real estate courses. Students must take the Essentials course before taking any of the other CIPS courses.

The Essentials of International Real Estate course is also an approved elective for the Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR) and the Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) designations.

CIPS Designation Requirements

The Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS) course curriculum is the educational foundation of the CIPS Network. It distinguishes CIPS designees as individuals who have both hands-on experience in international real estate transactions, as well as successfully completed an intensive seven-day program of study focusing on critical aspects of transnational transactions, including currency and exchange rate issues and cross-cultural relationships, regional market conditions, investment performance, tax issues and more. A more detailed description of the six courses is provided below.

U.S. REALTORS® must complete the two-day "International Real Estate for Local Markets" (formerly Essentials) before joining the CIPS Network. Non-U.S. practitoners are also encouraged to take this course, but it is not currently a requirement. Whether or not a practitioner intends to work toward the CIPS designation, this course is ideal for anyone who may encounter opportunities in their local market to assist in an international transaction, e.g., assisting an immigrant or foreign investor, or helping a US resident purchase property abroad.

Course Descriptions
Six courses (five of which are required - only three of the four one-day regional courses are necessary) comprise the education program of the CIPS Network. The prerequisite "International Real Estate for Local Markets" course is required for CIPS membership and the remaining courses must be completed within two years of declaring candidacy for CIPS Network members.
