What is the difference between the RPI Training and the RCS-D™ Designation Course?
We divided the 12 hour RCS-D™ Designation Course into two parts:
- Hours 1-6 | RPI Training – Part 1 (Prerequisite for Part 2)
- Hours 7-12 | Advanced RPI – Part 2
To earn the RCS-D™ Designation, you must complete 12 hours of coursework, that is, Part 1 and Part 2.
But if you are an affiliate or do not need another designation, the 6 hour RPI Training Part 1 is available as a stand-alone course.Back to Top
What does RPI stand for? | Why work with the RPI Tracking Tool?
RPI stands for Real Property Information. This is a self represented litigant form we are donating to states to foster enhanced due diligence in family mediation/litigation in divorce and elder matters with real estate.
The RPI Tracking Tool – exclusive to all real estate professionals who complete Part 1 of the RPI Training – helps RPI-Trained real estate professionals track gaps in house due diligence as well as items the customer has chosen to pursue. As an enhanced EXCEL spreadsheet, it can be saved as a .pdf and serves as written status and final reports of house due diligence that are needed by family lawyers and mediators to supplement their case files.Back to Top
