The curriculum is comprised of a number of educational modules. Each module is designed to be administered over a two hour period. The licensee is required to complete six different modules in order to satisfy the twelve hour requirement.
These modules, and the curriculum overall, are designed for real estate brokers and salespeople as an overview. Instructors should tailor their presentation based on the level of the class. Naturally, the depth of coverage of each topic within a module will vary. For instance a module being taught to a class of experienced licensees would likely focus more heavily on certain topics and less so others. A group of inexperienced licensees would require a more general overview with equal time given to all the items within a module. Similarly, a group of licensees who practice as commercial agents would require that the presentation incorporate their needs.
This curriculum is designed for real estate brokers and salespeople to enhance their knowledge base of topics beneficial to the protection of the consumer. Although portions are designed to improve understanding of rights and obligations under the law, it is not a substitute for legal counsel. Materials such as state required forms, provided as part of the curriculum should only be used for study purposes and should not be disseminated to the general public. Nothing in this curriculum supersedes any state or federal laws or regulations.
