    No. It can only be used at an accredited college.

    FWIW, real estate investment "seminars" (the get rich quick stuff advertised on TV) is not going to count.

    No such thing as a 'realtors license'.

    There is a salesperson's license and a broker's license. You get a salesperson's license first, and then with the requisite experience as a salesperson and the additional required education, you apply for a broker's license.

    Realtor is a trademark of the National Association of Realtors. It is NOT a generic name for anybody with a license. A Realtor is a licensed broker that owns their own brokerage and is a member of the NAR.

    529 funds may be used for courses offered through any eligible institution. An eligible institution is defined as a college, university, vocational school or postsecondary institution eligible to participate in federal student aid programs administered by the U.S. Department of Education.

    Yes, but you will have to pay the penalty fland taxes on it, unless the real estate courses are offered flby a qualifying college/university. My guess is that they are not.
