Auctions are our specialty, training auctioneers is our profession. Auctioneering is one of the greatest professions of our time and the industry continues to grow. Southeastern School of Auctioneering welcomes those who would like to become a professional auctioneer. Most states require a person to attend a certified school of auctioneering in order to obtain their auctioneering license. Students at Southeastern will be able to develop their skills at bid calling, business management, auction law and specific auction field information.
