Learning Center Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How do I login to learn.corenetglobal.org?
A: Use the same login credentials as for www.corenetglobal.org
Q: How do I find courses to take?
A: There are several strategies for finding courses. You can 1) browse by type (On-Demand, Virtual Seminars, In-Person); 2) you can search by keywords (Type a term over the word "keyword" in the bottom left column); 3) or by the Catalog link on the menu bar.
Q: I enrolled in a course. Where do I go to access it?
A: All of the courses you are enrolled in are listed under the Dashboard link on the blue menu bar. You must be logged in for this menu item to be visible.
Q: I'm not in the QPCR or MCR program. What Courses can I take?
A: You may take any course that interests you. There are three exceptions: Workplace Strategy Methodologies, Workplace Strategy in Practice, and Capstone: Leadership & Strategy. These three courses build on the content from other courses and must be completed in order.
Q: I am a QPCR candidate. How do I find which courses I need to take?
A: QPCR candidates: Click on QPCR in the blue menu bar and select from the drop down list to enroll in Corporate Real Estate Knowledge and Business & Leadership Skills courses. In addition to completing 30 and 35 hours in each of these areas respectively, QPCR candidates must also participate in networking & volunteering activities to develop a professional network. If you enrolled in the QPCR program from your DASHBOARD, select Designations, and More Information to see your courses. Learn more about QPCR
These questions were submitted to email@example.com by QPCR participants.
Q: Can you unregister from a course? (I know we can hide them on our dashboard)
A: Our system does not allow participants to unregister themselves from learning seminars. Please send the name of the seminar you wish to unregiseter from to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll take care of it for you.
Q: When do new courses get added? I noticed the following are not currently available online:
- Business Continuity Planning

- Property Life Cycle
- Becoming a Person of Influence (6 hr day)
- Applying Critical Thinking (2 sessions)
- Authentic Leadership (2 sessions)

- Ethical Leadership (2 sessions)
- Gaining Influence (2 sessions)
- Mastering the Art of Virtual Facilitation (2 sessions)
A: QPCR offerings are ever-changing. We rotate the virtual course offerings every few months to keep the content fresh and relevant. Seminars that receive the best response from attendees are offered more frequently. Our 2020 schedule is already under development and will be released toward the end of the year. Originally conceived as taking two-years to complete, we are planning to offer courses frequently enough to facilitate completion of the QPCR in nine months.
Q: Will new courses outside of the spreadsheet attached be offered in 2020?
A: Yes. We will add 10 new e-learning modules within the next few weeks, and additional virtual courses are under development. The spreadsheet wasn’t attached to this message, but I assume you are referring to this Track Your Progress Worksheet.
Q: Do we need to attend all sessions within a course? What if we miss one?
A: QPCR courses are designed to be highly interactive and engaging, whether they are e-learning or virtual seminars. For this reason we strongly recommend registering for seminars when you can attend all sessions live. However, we do record each session so if something happens that you have to miss a portion, you can view the recording to complete the course. Otherwise a participant who missed a portion of a seminar wouldn’t be able to pass the course until the next time it was offered. These recordings are accessible to those who registered for the course.
Q: How do we submit networking & volunteering hours? Are there details as to what counts? Does attending monthly CoreNet programs and CoreNet summits count? How do we measure the hours of networking if it is outside of the mentor match program?
A: Great series of questions! Enroll in Networking & Volunteering Activity. Once you enroll, download the QPCR Activity Confirmation Form from the contents tab. Use it to track your participation in Chapter activities, CoreNet Global Summit and other networking and volunteer opportunities you participate in. Hours are measured in time spent participating in the activity. Unlike continuing professional development hours, which are limited to actual instruction time (excluding breaks/meals, etc.) participating in an entire activity counts. Additionally, there are volunteer opportunities at the Summit which will enhance your ability to get to know people while you are there. I particularly am drawn to the opportunity to introduce breakout session speakers. What a great way to connect with a leader in the field!
Q: How long do we have to complete the continuing professional development hours (CPD) required to maintain the QPCR professional designation? 1 year? 2 years?
A: The QPCR requirements mirror the MCR renewal requirements. “Participation in continuing professional development as evidenced by one of the following options: 1) Attend a total of two CoreNet Global Summits or two-day professional development seminars; or 2) Complete 32 contact hours of professional development relevant to corporate real estate*; or 3) Continuously hold a valid Broker’s license* during the renewal period; and 4) pay a renewal fee." The fee will be modest but is yet to be determined.
