    Course Design

    Commissioner’s Regulation Section 3006

    DRE course approval guidelines require us to control the student’s navigation through the course content to ensure the completion time is appropriate for the number of clock hours for which the course is approved.  Incremental assessments (chapter quizzes) are now required to measure a participant’s mastery of the course content after each logical unit of instruction or reading.

    This means you must advance through the course in a linear fashion, starting with the first chapter, and you cannot advance to the next chapter until the previous chapter's reading assignment and Chapter Quiz has been completed.  As a result, you cannot access the course final examination until all reading assignments and Chapter quizzes have been completed.  When you complete the last chapter quiz you receive a link to the Final Examination.

    NOTE: This applies to ALL enrollments, with or without physical books, so even if you have books, you must log in and complete the chapter quizzes before you can access the final examination.

    Time-To-Complete

    Commissioner’s Regulation Section 3007.3 now states that students are limited to completion of a maximum of 15 credit hours during any one 24 hour period. The maximum time to complete the course(s) is one year from the date of enrollment. Completion of the course(s) includes taking and passing the final examination for each course. All course final examinations must be taken before midnight of your expiration date.

    Final Examination and Passing the Course

    You will be required to take and pass an OPEN-BOOK final examination for each course. A passing score is 70% or better. Final exam questions are based upon the text material.

    Timed Final Examinations

    Final examinations are timed to allow no more than one minute per question. Final examination timing is listed at the top of this General Information Page and also on the Final Examination Instruction for each course. 

    Identification for Final Exam

    A participant shall present one of the following forms of identification immediately before admittance to a live presentation of an offering or, immediately before the administration of the final examination for a correspondence offering:

    A.   A current California driver's license.                                                                                                                              

    B.   A current identification card described in Section 13000 of the California Vehicle Code.            C.   Any identification of the participant issued by a governmental agency or a recognized real estate related trade organization within the immediately preceding five years which bears a photograph, signature and identification number of the participant.

    Note: Authority cited: Sections 10080 and 10170.4, Business and Professions Code. Reference: Section 10170.4, Business and Professions Code.

    By entering one of the above forms of identification you are affirming, under penalty of perjury, that you are the student registered for this course and that you personally will complete the final examination. Any violation of this section will result in revocation of the completion certificate for this course and will be reported to the Department of Real Estate.

    What Happens If I Fail?

    If you should fail the course final examination, you will be given one opportunity to take an alternate final examination. The questions in the re-examination will be different questions than those asked in the original final examination.  A second failure would require re-enrollment and completion of the instructional portion of the course.

    Special Note: We now ONLY offer final exam testing via the Internet. Personal Identification Number (PIN) and instructions were emailed to you upon enrollment. You must log in and submit the chapter quizzes before you can access the final examinations.

    Course Completion Certificate

    If you are enrolled in our complete 45-hour package, our system will automatically email one course completion certificate at the conclusion of your last course, showing all courses completed.  If you would like individual completion certificates or otherwise need your completion certificates prior to finishing all the courses in the package, we would be happy to issue your certificates immediately upon request.  This completion certificate will contain an 8-digit course approval number for each course issued by the California Department of Real Estate. These numbers must be supplied by you to the Department of Real Estate for the renewal of your license.

    Refund Policy

    If for any reason you decide to cancel your enrollment, we will issue a refund (less a $25 registration fee and shipping & handling) if cancellation occurs by midnight of the 30th business day after the date of enrollment. No refund will be issued after the above mentioned time period. If you paid by credit card, your account will be credited within 30 days. All textbooks, if ordered, must be returned to the school, in good and usable condition*, within 10 days of the date of cancellation. If you do not return the material supplied by the school within this 10-day period, the school may keep an amount out of what you paid that equals the price of the textbooks for the course. The school will refund any amount over that as provided above.

    *Good and usable condition means that the textbook is unmarked and undamaged by shipping. It shall be the student's responsibility to package and ship the course material in such a manner as to assure compliance.
