Accredited Elite Advocate - Program

September 3, 2013 - Updated: September 3, 2013


Accredited Elite Advocate



Two day Program


This program is designed to ensure that the participant will learn to apply the law in a meaningful way. There are more laws than just the very basics. By becoming aware of the application, interaction and conflict among the various statutes, common law, and cases, the real estate practitioner will develop a series of defences in the management of their businesses. This is the underlying element in risk management.


The practitioner will write an examination at the conclusion of the program to ensure that they have acquired the fundamental principles. Successful candidates will earn the “AEA” or “Accredited Elite Advocate” designation awarded by the HarvardNorth Real Estate Academy.
