Test Your Development Skills and Knowledge- Our Kahoot Challenge

Welcome to our 'Test Your Development Skills' challenge. We use the Kahoot Platform for this test so that you can see how you go against other avid Property Developer gurus ( or not) .

How does kahoot work?

It is easy. Just go to www.kahoot.it and you will see the input window shown below.

You then enter a game pin number that we provide in this course and it will ask you for a nickname. Please use your first name or similar so we can track your results (this is up to you and not compulsory)

How does the challenge work?
You follow this course platform from unit to unit and you find that each unit will have a theme like ' Property Developer History' or 'General Knowledge' questions.

As you proceed along from unit to unit the questions are aimed at being more difficult to answer and require you to learn from our platform or  play our Property Development Game .

Intern-Staff Induction Course- How the Faster Classes Work

Welcome to our general induction modules which help you understand how the Dr Drane Faster Classes have been created as well as our goals and strategies.

The Faster Class concept is very exciting and seeks to help students find a bridge into industry faster than the traditional university course work process of several years

The Faster Class also provides several pathways for students to interact and grow including internships, student learning and affiliate status.

Once you enrol or join any of these programmes you are part of a network that will be there for you as you move forward in your life and career path.

I have taught thousands of students and practitioners in the art of property development over the years across several academic institutions and in industry training as well.

I hope you enjoy this induction and welcome to a unique pathway in your life moving forward
