AUSTIN — Texas Land Commissioner and Veterans Land Board (VLB) Chairwoman Dawn Buckingham, M.D. is pleased to announce the implementation of a one hour Texas Real Estate Commission-approved (TREC) Continuing Education course that counts towards a REALTOR’s required training.

The elective course, which will be taught by VLB Marketing and Outreach Staff, will be available online via Zoom and in-person and will cover VLB's home and land loan programs and common issues of which REALTORs should be aware. 

"As Land Commissioner and Chairwoman of the VLB, our Veterans are the heartbeat of everything we stand for as a country," said Commissioner Buckingham. "Being able to provide Veterans with skilled REALTORs to answer their questions and make them aware of the benefits they've earned is vital to our mission at the VLB and General Land Office."
