This 18-hour course includes all of the TREC required topics for licensee renewal, as well as a set of elective courses to meet the elective requirement.
The course begins with MCE legal updates to keep licensees abreast of the newest changes in real estate regulations, including those pertaining to property management. Then, we'll review disclosures, addendums, and other contract forms that have been modified. After a review of antitrust laws that licensees must observe, we'll touch on the duties of an agent, and the Deceptive Trade Practices Consumer Protection Act.
After that we'll move to practices and techniques that can be implemented to help a real estate brokerage operate efficiently. This includes a discussion of issues that can arise when working in an office with multiple licensees, supervision and management techniques, and the development of office policies and procedures.
Next, we'll review the regulations that apply to advertising your services, as well as the prohibitions of antitrust laws. We'll also talk about best practices in recordkeeping and producing financial reports.
Last, we'll talk about licensee safety in the course of real estate duties. We'll discuss the different threats that licensees need to be aware of, and some of the protective measures that can be implemented to help ensure licensee safety.
The course concludes with a short 30-question exam required by TREC to assess student learning.
