Corona Virus Update

The Houston Association of Realtors has cancelled all live Continuing Education classes for March and April. But fear not my friends! We are simply migrating to an online class delivery system called Zoom. All my scheduled HAR classes will be held on the originally scheduled days and times. We will get details out ASAP. All should be in place and ready to go for the classes this Friday (March 20th).

If you had already enrolled for the live classes then you will be receiving an email from HAR with instructions on how to log in for the online class. If you wish to enroll then just go to www.har.com/edu to enroll. If you have any problems call HAR at 713-629-1900 and ask for the Education Department. The classes will be in real time. I will see your smiling faces and you will see mine. You’ll be able to ask questions as normal. It’s going to be great! Since this is still considered a live presentation the “test” for Legal Update 1, Legal Update 2, and Broker Responsibility will not be graded. We’re on it!

2020 Continuing Education Requirements

All agents must now have 18 hours of Continuing Education (CE). This 18 hours must include TREC Legal Update 1 (4 hours) and TREC Legal Update 2 (4 hours).

I will again be doing an 18-hour package at the 4 HAR locations each month. HAR is also adding an 18-hour package at Prairie View A&M’s 9449 Grant Road location in Northwest Houston. The package will be done over three days. 8 hours of Legal 1 and Legal 2 on the first day, 6 hours of various elective classes on the second, and the remaining 4 hours on the third day. The 3 days may not be back-to-back or even in the same week but will be held each month. Or you can break it up and just do the courses on different days as fits your schedule.

If you are a broker that sponsored sales agents during your two year license period, or you were the designated broker for a business entity that sponsored sales agents during that same period, or you are a sales agent delegated as a supervisor of other agents for at least three consecutive months during your license period, or the leader or manager of a team or group you must also include in your 18 hours the Broker Responsibility Course (BRC) which is 6 hours. The Broker class will be included in the 18 hour package this year so check the calendars for dates and locations. We will hold it once per month and rotate it between the four HAR locations. Keep in mind that anyone can take the BRC for elective credit and it is a great course for everyone!
