Corporate In-House Training

 

Set up your employees for success by teaching them how to make fewer mistakes and be more productive in Excel

REFM Training enables employees to accurately and efficiently solve problems with Excel by teaching basic and advanced principles, stepping through Excel models line-by-line, and performing skills exercises.  REFM also offers testing of employees and employee prospects.

Training content is created by REFM founder Bruce Kirsch, who is an Editor of the Third Edition of the top graduate-level real estate finance textbook, Real Estate Finance and Investments: Risks and Opportunities by The Wharton School’s Emeritus Professor of Real Estate, Dr. Peter Linneman.  Mr. Kirsch was previously an Adjunct Faculty member in Real Estate at Georgetown University, and he holds an MBA in Real Estate from The Wharton School and a BA in Communication from Stanford University.  Prior to founding REFM, Mr. Kirsch worked in analytical roles for two top real estate platforms and a global mutual fund manager.
