Course F.A.Q.

Our courses are designed for ease of navigation and learning. Each subject is broken down into individual chapters and the student has the ability to sign off and on as often as they choose. Each time they signoff they will automatically have their place book marked. When they return to the material they will be at the point they left.

At the end of each chapter there will be multiple choice questions. If you answer incorrectly, you will be given another question without having to re-read the material or receive any penalty for time.

There are no graded exams.

Our courses are timed based on state requirements and a timer appears on the bottom of your screen. As you complete each page an arrow will allow you to move to the next one. It will take a total of at least 22.5 hours to complete your subjects.

You will be automatically logged off if you fail to advance pages for 5 minutes or more.

Your Certificate of Completion will be available for you to print and Dept. of State will be notified of your course completion. When all subjects are completed the student will be able to go online to the Dept. of State website and renew his/her license and pay the fee.

Any salesperson who successfully completes an approved broker qualifying course (which requires passing the final schools exam) will receive credit for continuing education for their current two-year sales license renewal period. As long as they have completed the 3 clock hours of mandatory Fair Housing, which is not included in the Brokers course.
