Due to Hurricane Harvey and its catastrophic remnants, The Land Department, Inc. will be postponing the Land Institute courses until Spring 2018. We will accommodate anyone that has already registered for the courses, as well as introducing a payment plan for those still wanting to register. Continue to check our website for updates listing the new dates of the courses. As much of Houston and the surrounding areas work endlessly to put their lives back together, we want you all to know that our thoughts and prayers remain with everyone affected.
