Become a PMN Instructor
Are you interested in becoming a Performance Management Network (PMN) instructor? These steps below will guide you through the process.
Step 1: Attend the Train-the-Trainer Workshop
Where and when are the Train-the-Trainer Workshops held?
These sessions are attended by both new and veteran instructors and are held once a year at various locations, usually in conjunction with NAR's REALTORS® Conference & Expo in November and the Legislative Meetings and Expo in May. Additional details may be obtained by contacting the Education Director at firstname.lastname@example.org or 800-245-8512.
What will I learn in the Train-the-Trainer Workshop?
Everything you will need to share with students in the classroom will be reviewed in the workshop. We’ll also cover any updates in the PMN Courses, as well as teaching techniques for delivering courses and instructor development tools to help build teaching skills.
Is the Train-the-Trainer Workshop required?
Yes, all instructors must attend. New instructors are strongly encouraged to attend as quickly as possible, since this will greatly enhance your success as a Women’s Council instructor.
Step 2: Get certified to teach the PMN courses you’d like to instruct.
How do I get certified to teach a specific PMN course?
To teach a class, you must first attend it. All instructors are invited to attend any courses that Women’s Council hosts during our national events. Current offerings can be viewed here.
If these national offerings don’t fit your schedule, you’ll be able to audit any of the classes listed on the Course Calendar (with some exceptions). To audit a course, contact the Education Department at 800-245-8512 or Education@wcr.org. We ask that you attend a course with an instructor who has taught several times and has received excellent reviews. Current offerings can be viewed here.
Step 3: Promote yourself as an instructor
How do I get invited to teach?
The first thing you need to do is find a "home"—a specific course provider—for whom to teach. This includes Women’s Council State and Local Chapters/Networks, State and Local REALTOR® Association Boards, proprietary schools, as well as a network of educational franchises. You can locate a Women’s Chapter and/or Network by visiting Find a Chapter on our website.
You should have a Speaking Resume that clearly reflects your experience, any references and videos you can provide will also be helpful. Submit your information to one of these providers. If hired, your contract will be between you and the licensed provider. The licensed provider is responsible for obtaining and distributing the course materials for any PMN courses that you are qualified to teach. A sample instructional contract is available for your convenience.
Women’s Council will monitor your progress through instructor evaluations.
Once a provider has hired you, they will contact Women’s Council’s National Office, where you’ll be added to the database as an instructor.
How am I compensated for teaching PMN courses?
Women’s Council is not involved in any compensation agreements (unless Women’s Council is offering the course). This is negotiated between the course provider and you. In establishing these agreements, we recommend that you also discuss compensation for hotel, travel, and food expenses, if appropriate, and document these terms in writing before you begin teaching.
