Texas 18-Hour Designated Broker Package
- 18 Hour Course
All real estate license holders operating in Texas and renewing after their SAE renewal are required to complete 18 hours of continuing education (CE). This 18-hour package is for designated brokers in Texas, as well as sales agents and brokers who have supervising responsibilities or have sponsored one or more sales agents. It includes all the TREC-required topics for license renewal, such as delegated supervisors, ensuring competency, especially regarding proper use of forms, and licensee training issues among others as well as a unique set of courses to meet the 1-hour elective requirement.
The course begins with Legal Update I and Legal Update II 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, along with learning about water damage and flooding issues. Then, we'll look at ethics requirements, rebates and referral fees, advertising and title issues, and RESPA compliance.
We'll then move onto a Texas 6-Hour Broker Responsibility course, which addresses topics such as the scope of broker responsibility, management of trust funds, advertising regulations and guidelines, recordkeeping, and establishing written policies.
After that, we’ll go over a Texas 3-Hour Real Estate Contracts course, which meets the 3-hour contracts-related coursework required by TREC for CE. It includes coverage of key terms, Texas real estate law, and frequently encountered contracts, with a special focus on Listing Agreements and Buyer Agency Agreements. This section finishes with a look into topics such as leasing real estate, leasehold estates, types of leases, and the discharge of leases.
The CE package ends with a Texas 1-Hour Fair Housing course, which goes over the fair housing regulations that real estate professionals need to be aware of and abide by.
After each course there is a final exam, designed to test your knowledge and help you apply what you’ve learned. Once you’re finished, you’ll have completed all of the necessary continuing education for renewing your license, all at your own pace!
