Real estate agents in Idaho can satisfy the full elective portion of their continuing education requirement for license renewal. In addition to the two core courses mandated by the Idaho Real Estate Commission, agents must also complete 12 hours on elective topics. This elective package focuses on real estate agent safety, home financing options, and the National Association of REALTOR'S® Code of Ethics.
In the first course series about real estate agent safety, agents will learn about general safety considerations and how to identify threats against property and individuals, including robbery, identity theft, fraud, assault, foreclosure schemes, and other property scams targeting home owners. Next, we discuss how to safely show a property to a prospective buyer. Before the first final exam, liability and the importance of insurance are analyzed.
Lending laws and practices and sources of financing are covered in the 2nd half of the series. Types of loans and available loan programs are mentioned, along with various other methods of financing available to new home buyers. The NAR Code of Ethics Sections 1 through 3 are detailed at the end of this series. A REALTOR'S® duties to clients, customers, the general public, and fellow REALTORS® are thoroughly examined with case study examples.
After each lesson, students will be asked a single question about the material. Videos and images are utilized throughout the course to aid visual and auditory learning styles. A total of eight incremental quizzes and two final exams will test the student’s knowledge. Successful completion of all material will unlock the certificates needed for license renewal.
