TOP QUESTIONS ASKED BY BROKERS & MANAGING BROKERS
Q. May I continue to take Core A and Core B continuing education courses?
A. No. All Core A and Core B CE courses (offered by all state-approved schools) terminated on June 30, 2019. From this point forward, only the 4-hour Core CE course and electives will be offered by state-approved Education Providers.
Q: Is the new Core course available now?
A: Kind of. You may enroll now, but you must wait until July 10th to begin the course. The ten day delay is the result of a regulatory "glitch."
Q: I'm a newly licensed Broker who will be renewing my license for the first time. What should I do?
A: To learn about your requirements, visit our Broker Post-License page.
