REFAI Certification (new REFM course from Linneman)

Hello, and thank you in advance for any feedback --

There is a new, or at least I believe it's new, course from REFM/Linneman called the Real Estate Finance And Investments (REFAI) Certification. It is $1499. Pricey, but the course looks intensive and useful.

Anyone have any insight on the course?

About Me: 1.5 years into corporate real estate job for entertainment company. Primarily leasing, some acquisition work, not much underwriting. I have taken REFM, but want to learn more about RE financial analysis.

Not sure if you got an email about it, but they had a webinar on it earlier this week:

I'm looking into the program as well. I haven't taken the REFM courses, but I have the textbook. I looked through the two sample chapters that the site offers. I wasn't too impressed with their chapter 1 example, but the chapter 5 pro-forma walk-through seems pretty thorough. I'm tempted to go for it, mostly for the Linneman lecture videos actually.

FYI -- I purchased the course. They had and still have discounts to make the price easier to swallow.

So far, the course has been a great compliment to the Real Estate Finance and Investments textbook. If you're like me and need to have ideas reinforced via lecture/example, the course has done a great job of that so far.
