Leap EDU and Hofstra University Continuing Education today announced that real estate professional training classes presented by Leap EDU on the Hofstra campus have been moved to a live online learning format in the wake of the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak.
The courses affected by the move are the New York State 75-hour Real Estate Salesperson course and Back-2-Basics Continuing Education classes.
Almost 80 people are currently registered for the courses, which takes place three times daily, five days a week.
“We want to give our students the opportunity to continue their education while staying safe,” said Adam Barda, founding partner of Leap EDU. “With governments issuing guidelines for ‘social distancing’ to reduce the spread of the virus, students will be able to attend classes at home via their smart devices with a live instructor.”
Hofstra University Vice Dean Colleen A. Slattery said that the university is committed to continuing to serve its professional students via online classes.
“In asking asked our non-essential personnel to work from home, moving these courses online allows us to continue this important instruction,” said Hofstra University Vice Dean Colleen A. Slattery. “We will work with Leap and our instructors to help ensure a smooth transition.”
Leap EDU’s published schedule of Hofstra University classes will not be affected: Salesperson/Back-2-Basics classes will continue to be offered 3 times a day, 5 days a week. Students can refer to the class schedule at leapedu.com/live-online/
