It’s that time of year when Major League Baseball comes out of hibernation and spring training begins. You don’t have to have a multimillion dollar contract to take part in your own version of spring training. Invaluable educational opportunities can be had for free or little cost.
Here are a few opportunities to improve your pitch, practice your swing and better your chances for a home run:
* Participate in the weekly Help-U-Sell meetings: Tech Time Tuesday and Wednesday’s Power Hour. Both are from noon to 1 p.m. ET. Help-U-Sell brokers and agents, email us to register for these free online training sessions.
* Attend one of Inman News’ Agent Reboot events. These one-day sessions are fast-paced, fact-packed and feature top real estate marketing and technology experts. The cost is just $49. Remaining locations for 2013 include Orange County (Calif.), Boston, Dallas, and Fort Lauderdale.
* Register for Zillow Academy webinars. The academy offers at least one webinar every weekday on topics ranging from Zillow-specific tutorials to blogging techniques and time-management tips.
* Take advantage of National Association of REALTORS free or low-cost educational opportunities.
You can also find free webinars through Inman News and other online entities. If you have any courses to recommend, please tell us about them in the comments.
