This 15 hour package is comprised of four courses approved by the North Dakota Real Estate Commission, and will work together to satisfy your post-license education requirements. If you previously completed 45 hours of pre-license education prior to January 1, 2021, you need to complete 15 hours of post-license education within 12 months of licensure.

This package begins with our Real Estate Agent Safety course. At the end of this class, students will be able to identify and describe the various threats that can be present during a showing, describe safety strategies that can be used to protect a real estate agent, a property, and other people in most situations, explain what precautions a real estate agent can take before a showing or open house to protect himself or herself, to protect the property being shown, and to protect people touring the property, describe the actions a real estate agent can take during a showing to protect himself or herself, to protect the property being shown, and to protect the people touring the property, describe some of the duties a real estate agent needs to complete after a showing to protect the property and the residents and/or owners of the property, and explain what liability is and describe the various forms of liability.

Next is our Agency course. In this class, we'll review the history of agency, and the common law of agency in America. We will also examine roles in the agency transaction in general as well as types of agency and types of authority. Along with the concept of agency there will be a short examination of the role of an agent with regard to the fiduciary relationship inherent in a transaction. Creation of agency relationships will be discussed, as well as responsibilities of the parties in the agency relationship. Then we'll address avoiding potential problems. There will also be a short section on terminations of agency and agency in the law. Then, prior to moving on to North Dakota specific information, we will look at concepts of agency specific to the industry of real estate.

In the section on North Dakota, we will follow North Dakota Administrative Code Section Chapter 3-03, Agency. The section will go into the creation and terminations of agency, then move into the section relating to the relationships of principals and agents, principals and third parties, and the agents and third parties. Then we will spend some time learning about dual agency and section 70-02-03-15.1 of the North Dakota Administrative Code. Finally, there will be a review of two recent court cases in America that are having an impact on agency in the real estate profession.
