Method of Delivery
Format #1: Online course with no textbook (reading, quizzes, and final exam online)
Format #2: Home study with physical textbook (quizzes and final exam online)
The course design is dictated by the California Bureau of Real Estate and requires you to demonstrate mastery of the subject matter in one chapter of the course before progressing to the next. This means:
1. The online chapter quizzes are mandatory.
2. You must advance through the online chapter quizzes in a linear fashion and you cannot advance to the next chapter quiz until the previous chapter's reading assignment and chapter quiz has been completed.
3. You cannot access the course final examination and complete the course until all chapter quizzes have been completed and the minimum time* has elapsed. When you complete the last chapter quiz you receive a link to the Final Examination.
The DRE allows each course to be completed in a MINIMUM time of 2.5 weeks (18 calendar days) from the date you receive the course material. The MAXIMUM time we allow for completion of the course is 1 year from the date of enrollment.
The 2.5 week rule dictates how quickly you can take the final exam and complete each course. For example, the absolute fastest you can complete two courses is 5 weeks. REMEMBER, the rule is: 2.5 weeks (18 calendar days) from the date you receive the book for each course. If you still have questions about how fast you can complete your course(s), please call the school for clarification.
Should you not be able to complete this course within one (1) year of the date of enrollment, (for any reason, no exceptions), you may extend your enrollment for a period of three (3) months for $25.00 or one year for the full course fee. If you extend for three months, you have three months from the original expiration date of your course(s). If you extend for one year, you have one year from the date of re-enrollment. REMEMBER, if the textbook edition has changed, you will be required to purchase the current textbook to extend the course.
Final Examination And Passing The Course
In order for you to pass this course, you will be required to take and pass an online final examination (100 multiple-choice, 2.5 hours, 60% or better to pass, open book).
What Happens If You Fail A Final Exam?
If you do not pass the final exam on the first try, DRE allows you one re-take. Be aware that the questions on the re-take exam will be completely different from the questions on the original final exam. If you fail the re-examination you must re-do the entire course and wait 18 calendar days before being allowed to take the final exam again. (‘You must wait 2½ weeks (18 calendar days) before you can re-take the exam
