Connect Media Launches Online Learning Center for CRE Accreditation

Connect Media, a commercial real estate news, events and creative services agency, has launched Connect Classroom, an innovative online learning center for the commercial real estate industry. Connect Classroom is an online resource of accredited courses for ever-evolving industries such as commercial real estate, architecture, and law. The world-class continuing education material is made by and for commercial real estate professionals nationwide. 

Daniel Ceniceros, CEO of Connect Media, said, “I am excited to launch Connect Classroom for the CRE industry because it brings on-demand courses you can take at your own pace – that actually cover commercial real estate. So, just like our news, the content is timely and relevant to your business.”  

Across the industry and at whatever stage of their careers, CRE professionals are required to continue their education, whether the subject matter is sector-specific trends or regulatory changes. Fitting this learning into a busy schedule is often a challenge, even as live industry conferences are coming back. Connect Classroom is designed as a solution to these time constraints while providing high-caliber educational materials. 

A team led by Connect Media VP Emily Lettieri developed the online learning hub. Kasi Orcutt recently joined the Connect team as a director and will be leading all Connect Classroom operations and linguistics. Other members of the team involved in Connect Classroom include Marsennia Wells, manager, instructional and learning design; and Diwaine Wood, project manager. 

Orcutt said, “Our innovative accredited courses are written by industry experts and are designed with your success in mind, no matter if you’re new to the industry or a seasoned veteran. These engaging and thoughtfully designed courses offer credit hours for commercial real estate brokers, lenders, architects, and attorneys.” 

Currently courses are offered for professionals in California, New York, Illinois, Texas and Florida. New courses and new markets are being added every week. Courses for Georgia, Arizona and Massachusetts are in the works. More information about Connect Classroom can be found here.
