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.

Colleges and universities have recognized the community need for this course. That is 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.

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. 

We also list continuing education opportunities so please check this site often to find resources for increasing your STR knowledge and connections (see Events & Promotions page).

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 recognizing the community need for this education within our emerging industry by offering the course at a low tuition rate and in multiple locations and dates.
