I personally would never do it.
Whether you should do it is questionable.
Most people who start off interested in real estate investing quit within about three or four months.
So, these type of people hit you while you are “hat” and get paid. Whether you turn out to be a serious investor or just another of the dropouts, does not matter to them. They got heir money up frunt.
I doubt their claim about beginners making good real estate deals within three months. Seems highly unlikely to me. Maybe the people buy something, but a good deal? I doubt it.
Ask them for 20 names of students who you can telephone to verity that they are happy with the service. If they will not give them to you, forget them. If they do, start calling and asking questions. Particularly ask if the studen knows anybody else who paid for the program and get their phone nubmer and call them.
You have done google searches on their company and personal names?
