The 2016 year end marks a deadline for Realtor requirements for members of NAR (National Association of Realtors). All members must complete a code of ethics course to remain active members of the association. It is a plus to couple the education credits with the completion of the course. A member can earn CE credits for renewal while qualifying for the code of ethics training. Just take a course that has approved CE credits which will be reported to the licensing authority and the local Association who tracks your education.
MRES has an approved course through the Realtor University for only $29.95 here!
Exam prep is very important before taking the state real estate licensing exam. The best time to take the exam is within a seven to sixty days after taking the course. If you wait longer; you should re-read the law and the textbook. Preparing yourself with practice exams and definitions is also a must.
Failure to pass the exam within two – three attempts will trigger the requirement to take 12 hours of additional education. This could be a specific approved real estate review course or any approved continuing education courses. The completion must be proven by bringing an actual certificate to the exam appointment on your next attempt.
It’s May 2016! Check your education on the state website by clicking into your license ID number. Did you know that members of NAR must complete a Code of Ethics course every four years.
The Code of Ethics course is not a licensing requirement BUT you can couple the requirements together and take an ethics course that also provides CE for renewal. MRES offers the NAR Code of Ethics course for 3 ce.
The mandatory 6-hour CORE course must be completed each license period. The 2015-2016 CORE is available now. Remember if you order this course, you must complete it this year, regardless, as this course will be replaced with a different course for the next 2017-2018 two-year period.
As of April 16, 2016, the cost for a real estate license application is $110. Up $10 for the first time in over 20 years! The deposit for the Education and Recovery account went down to $10 from $30.
MRES offers courses based on the criteria set by the Tennessee Real Estate Commission (known as TREC). Each course offered has an approval category for a certain number of hours and content. To obtain a real estate license, the student must complete Pre-license education for an affiliate broker (which is the state license for a real estate agent). An agent must complete the entire education and license process as outlined by TREC . The education is the first step, however, the state dictates the rest, such as background checks, license exam, application, insurance and fees.
The courses are approved in a classroom, over the internet or by workbook and each has its own approval number which is assigned by the Tennessee Real Estate Commission. Prior to obtaining a license, a students identification such as date of birth, social security number, drivers license is required; once a license is issued, the licensee will use the license ID number to report continuing education.
MRES offers classroom courses throughout the year in the evenings and day hours. See the website for available times. MRES website
