About Us

Welcome to the World Wide College of Auctioneering web site!

 Thank you for stopping by our web site and feel free to peruse the various areas. I know you will find them very informative. World Wide College of Auctioneering was founded in 1933 by the legendary auctioneer Col. Joe Reisch to provide the very best Auctioneer education and training available and today we are continuing at the same high level of excellence and tradition. Since that time over 40,000 men and women of every age, from every state in the United States, from every Canadian province and from many foreign countries have taken their place in the personal and financially rewarding world of auctioneering, most had no prior auctioneering or public speaking experience. You too can join the ranks of the wonderful world of the professional auctioneer.
