The Columbia Institute was founded in 1992 with the mission to provide quality appraisal continuing education at a reasonable cost. Subsequently, we have expanded our programs to provide real estate education as well, and have begun to offer pre-license/qualifying courses through Columbia e-Campus. Consequently, our mission statement has been amended: to provide quality education and service at a reasonable cost.

Columbia e-Campus was created in 2002 to provide real-time, 24-7 online courses for both pre-license/qualifying and CE in those states which accept such education. Columbia e-Campus has experienced thousands of registrations throughout the country since its beginning. It has two affiliates participating in its offerings: On-course Learning and Fastclass.

Instructor went above and beyond standard teaching techniques. Very impressed.

Best Class I've taken.  Instructor voice and presentation excellent.  One of the few instructors I've had that has done an appraisal in 10 years.  This is a BIG PLUS!
