The CBT will also conduct Real Estate Continuing Education (CE) Day on Feb. 21 for real estate salespeople and brokers who must complete it in order to maintain their licenses.
The CBT has also partnered with the Massachusetts Board of Real Estate Appraisers (MBREA) to offer training to prepare individuals for a career in real estate appraisal.
