About Thomas R. Lambuth, Director Career Development Center 

Thomas Lambuth has over forty years experience in teaching at the university level and adult education. The last twenty-five years were focused on
pre-license and continuing education in real estate and mortgage lending. He was licensed as a commercial real estate broker in Kentucky in 1984,
and also held a real estate license in Alabama. His credentials include being a licensed residential mortgage broker in Kentucky for about twenty years.

He taught real estate classes part time for the largest real estate school in Kentucky until 1996 when he started Career Development Center
and was licensed by the State Board for Proprietary Education and approved by the Kentucky Real Estate Commission to teach real estate
pre-license and continuing education classes in Kentucky.

      When the Kentucky Department of Financial Institutions required mortgage brokers and loan officers obtain pre-license and continuing
      education in 2004, Thomas was approved by the DFI to provide and teach those courses. In 1999, Career Development Center added    
      the commercial truck driving licensing curriculum, which is licensed and regulated by the Kentucky Department of Justice and the
      Kentucky State Police.

      In 2006, he purchased the pre-license section of a real estate school owned and operated by the Hilton Head Board of REALTORS(R),
      of Hilton Head, South Carolina. The Hilton Head Real Estate School then added the required Post-License courses and the Property    
      Management Pre-License course. The Hilton Head Real Estate School, and Instructor are licensed and approved by the South Carolina
      Real Estate Commission. He teaches classes in South Carolina through out the year.

      He teaches all the real estate and mortgage lending classes, with only occasional assistance from a small number of part time
      instructors. Class-room presentation and direct interaction with students, and being referred to as the "best teacher they ever had".
