Update 9/22/2017

On 9/21/2017, The Secretary of the Florida DBPR signed an Emergency Order (2017-07505) which extends the renewal deadline for real estate licenses to 10/23/2017.  Please note that the emergency order provides for an extension, NOT a waiver. Licensees are still required to complete their education and file their renewals.


Update 9/14/2017 9:00 am

Things are mostly back to normal today.  We currently have power at all 5 locations.  We are still experiencing some telephone and internet issues.  Class re-schedule information has been posted below.  Please note we are anticipating the DBPR will extend the 9/30/17 real estate license renewal deadline.  This has not yet been announced.  When it is announced updated information will be provided here.

While we have done our best to get classes started and running as soon as possible, we recognize that all students will not be able to attend makeup sessions as they have been scheduled.  Students will have the option of starting with a new class at a later date if that works better for them.  In some cases we can also switch students from classroom to online classes if that is a better fit for the student.

Attention Students: Please pay close attention to the location, class, and reschedule information found below, listed by location.

Update 9/13 8:00 am

We recognize that all of Florida was impacted by Irma. Some areas were seriously affected, and other areas had minimal damage.  We have received many calls from people who want to get their classes re-started as soon as possible, and from others who are not yet ready. We are trying to accommodate as many students as possible, and have posted make-up schedules below for most of the classes that were canceled because of the storm.

If you are okay with the makeup schedule that is posted for your class, there is no need to call. Just show up at the date and time indicated for your class. If this schedule does not work for you, we are extremely flexible on rescheduling options. You may be able to switch to an online class or reschedule for a later date. There are no extra fees or charges for changing classes. We thank you in advance for your patience, as we are currently trying to accommodate students in over 40 classes.

Note: Our Lantana location is still without power. Our North Miami Beach location is open, but does not have phone service.


Update 9/12/2017 10:30 am

Things are beginning to get back to normal. We currently have power at 4 of our locations, but not in Lantana. Our phones are working, however, we do not have internet service. We are diligently working on class reschedule information. It will be posted here as soon as it is available.

Please note, in past years where there has been a natural disaster, the DBPR has extended renewal deadlines for licensees. While we cannot guarantee that they will do so this time, we anticipate that accommodations will be made for people with a September 30th renewal deadline. The state offices remain closed today.


Update 9/12/2017 7:30 am

Our offices will reopen on Tuesday 9/12 for staff only. We currently do not have any phone or internet service at any locations. Once these services have been restored, we will be able to serve our students. In addition, many staff members who evacuated the area are returning today.

All classes are canceled through Wednesday 9/13. The earliest we will resume classes in Thursday 9/14. Class rescheduling information will be posted here on Wednesday afternoon. Please be patient with rescheduling information. Obviously Irma has disrupted the entire region.

To all staff: Career counselors, please contact your Campus Directors. Instructors, please contact your Program Directors.


Update  9/11/2017 11:00

Our offices remain closed on Monday 9/11.

We plan on opening all offices on Tuesday, 9/12, presuming each location has power.

All classes are canceled through Wednesday 9/13, the earliest we will resume classes is Thursday 9/14.

Once power has been restored to each location, and staff who evacuated are back in town, we will publish reschedule/make-up class information. As soon as this information is available, we will post it here on this website. Please be patient as Irma has severely disrupted the entire area, including our staff and instructors.


Update 9/10/2017 6:30 am

All Gold Coast offices will be closed on Monday September 11th. All classes for Monday are cancelled or postponed. We will post reopening and rescheduling information once the storm has passed.


Update 9/8/2017

All weekend classes are canceled. We will post reopening and rescheduling information once the storm has passed.


Update 9/7/2017 7:00 am

At this time all Thursday daytime classes in Lantana, Boca, Tamarac, and Doral are running as scheduled.  All classes for North Miami Beach are cancelled due to the evacuation order now in place.  All offices will close at 5 pm Thursday and will remain closed until after the storm has passed.  All classes for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday are cancelled.

Once the storm has passed and damage assessments have been completed, re-scheduling of classes will begin.  Please check back here for re-scheduling information.  Unfortunately, no re-scheduling can take place until we know the status of buildings, etc.  Please stay safe.

 


Update: 9/6/2017 3:00 pm

At this time all daytime classes scheduled for Thursday 9/7 will run as scheduled.  Night classes on Thursday 9/7 are canceled.

All classes for Friday 9/8, Saturday 9/9, and Sunday 9/10 are canceled.   All Gold Coast offices will be open on Thursday 9/7 until 5 pm and will be closed on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

In these situations, many students want to know when classes will be rescheduled or made up.  Without knowing in advance what impact the storm may have on our facilities and the community in general, please understand it is impossible to provide accurate re-schedule information until after the storm has passed and damage assessments have been performed.  All information will be posted here as soon as it is available.

Some students may be upset that classes are canceled when the weather is still nice outside.  Other students may want us to cancel classes earlier. If you have preparations to make and need to reschedule your class, we will be happy to transfer you to another class after the storm has passed.  Please understand with evacuation orders in place, gas shortages, and time necessary to prepare for the storm, the safety of our students and staff is our first concern.

For any students concerned about license renewals, in past events like this, the state has extended renewal dates.  At this time we do not know if or when that will occur.

 


Update: 9/6/2017 7:00 am

All Gold Coast offices are open all day on Wednesday, and all scheduled classes are running. If for any reason any student cannot attend their class, we will happily reschedule you into another class after the storm has passed.


Update: 9/5/2017 11:00 pm

All Gold Coast offices will be open on Wednesday, and all Wednesday classes will run as scheduled. 

 


Update: 9/5/2017 10:30 am

All classes are currently running as scheduled. 

Gold Coast is closely watching the progress of Hurricane Irma.  While the storm’s forecast track is still uncertain, South Floridians should now be preparing for any impact the storm may bring.

The decision to close the schools is always a very sensitive decision. It is frustrating to students if we don’t make a cancellation decision early enough for them and equally as frustrating if we cancel classes too far in advance and end up with a nice sunny day.

We make every effort to try to balance the inconvenience that class cancellations cause our students and staff with the prudent safety measures that must be adhered to. Any decision to close will be based upon bulletins issued by the National Hurricane Center and other authorities.

If the decision is made to cancel classes, we will immediately post information on our website at www.goldcoastschools.com. We ask that you please check the website rather than calling our office. All information is posted on our website as soon as it is available.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. Please be safe.

Gold Coast Management
