Registration links for the
STR Certification Course
About the Course
The STR Certification Course is only offered through Accredited Higher Education Institutions. The Certification Seal is used by course graduates to show that they have taken their STR knowledge to a professional level. Registration is handled through the colleges and universities, so you first need to create a student account and then register within their system.
It's about quality education for an emerging industry.
We also list other continuing education opportunities so please check this site often to find resources for increasing your STR knowledge and connections (see Events & Promotions page).
See New Courses, such as Gold Standard Guest Service
We may be able to schedule special sessions in your location on available dates. We just need a minimum of 20 students to create a special course date in your area.
And there are more Continuing Education opportunities, Events, and Conferences are listed on the

for STR Professionals
Higher Education Settings
Colleges and universities have recognized the community need for this course. That's why it's offered at a low tuition cost and in several locations.
Several municipalities are requiring STR license applicants to complete education and this course is often their approved educational program. Students can take the course from any of the locations (live or online) to qualify for the approved STR Certification.
Real Estate Commissions recognize that short-term rental laws and practices are markedly different from long-term rental laws and practices. Realtors working with investors need to understand where STRs are permitted. The live course session qualifies for Utah, Nevada, and Florida RE CE.
The e-Course versions of the STR Certification Course
There are several versions of the normally 2-day STR Certification Course. Each online course version is different. The CSN-hosted version includes nine modules that students must complete over two weeks at their own pace which include lectures, textbook reading assignments, course assignments, discussion board exercises, quizzes, and the final examination.
The 2-day live e-course version holds lectures and quizzes through an online interactive platform such as ZOOM or Big Blue Button. Students must attend the full 2-days, with video connection, and complete the final examination through the learning management system. Sessions will be offered through DSU, UVU, TMCC, and CSN.
The 2-week self study course version through DSU offers online lectures, ZOOM discussion sessions, assignments, quizzes, and the final examination.
Watch for more dates as the universities and colleges add new classes to their 2020 and 2021 Semester Calendars.
Over a dozen colleges and universities have offered the STR Certification Course either in the 2-day version or as a semester-long course within a degree program.
We appreciate higher education for recognizing the community need for quality education for this emerging industry by offering the course at a low tuition rate and in multiple locations and dates.

With the e-course versions, students have the flexibility to complete the course from nearly anywhere in the world. We are pleased to make this course accessible through different e-course versions and live sessions.
