The Alaska Real Estate Commission and Association of Real Estate Law Officials have designated four core topics real estate practitioners in Alaska should become more acquainted with to ensure proper policies are in place, and state laws are followed. Our course will begin with an exploration into broker supervision and management, followed by a 20-question exam. Next is a segment on ethical decision making and how to comply with ethical standards in one’s day to day business practice. Another 20-question exam will commence to test comprehension thus far.
Part three of the eight-hour designated continuing education requirement will focus on the various acts and practices that constitute prohibited conduct for licensees. This includes copyright infringement, misrepresentation, negligence, and fraud. After the incremental exam, part four will dive into advertising online and the use of social media advertisements. A review of the necessity for a clear and comprehensive brokerage policy manual and a final 20-question exam will conclude this core studies course.
Some other topics this course will cover include:
- Where complaints against licensees are processed
- The Commission Consumer Disclosure form
- Property Management Contracts
- Teaching Professionalism
- Financial Records Management
- Different Approaches to Ethical Decision Making
- Conflicts of Interest
- Other Models of Ethics (i.e., Medical)
- Risks and Pitfalls of Advertising Online
- Multimedia Advertising
- Documenting Advertising Policies and Procedures
As students proceed through the course, they will be asked a multiple choice question periodically about the material just covered. Videos and images are utilized throughout the course to aid visual and auditory learning styles.
