The certification will include the following classes:
3 CE HR Intro to Risk Reduction- #43378
This course will train real estate agents in various aspects of business risk reduction. Agents will learn to recognize and embrace the value of further education related to risk reduction and how to utilize resources for business related risk avoidance. Also learn to identify and mitigate liability through effective risk reduction policies and practices.
2 CE HR Learn to Be the Source of the Source- #43376
Access to the Internet appears to be the ultimate source of information. But not everything on the internet is true. Today’s licensees need to know where to go for reliable sources of information and not just use crowdsourcing. By compiling a list of resources, learning how to search and providing accurate information to clients and customers will be a benefit to all parties. The course will cover both government sources and REALTOR® resources.
3 CE HR Defining & Understanding Competency- #43475
Agents and brokers are required to be competent in performing their duties as agents. This competency is tied directly to their fiduciary duties. Both the Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC) and the National Association of REALTORS Code of Ethics state that agents must be competent. TREC has gone even farther and required license holders to be competent in the geographic area and in the type of property. This class will go over the definition of competency. Additionally, the students will learn about the requirements set forth for brokers too versee their agents and verify that the agents are competent. Finally, students will learn the resources for them to become competent. By gaining this knowledge, the agents and brokers will be able to better serve consumers.
3 CE HR Whose Job is it Anyway?- #43475
The real estate transaction is very complicated with many different professionals involved. Each of those professionals have a different job. When license holders are working with customers and clients, it is important that these consumers understand that each of these roles are different and important to the transactions. To make a transaction proceed smoothly and reduce risk to all parties, these activities and who the person is that performs these activities must be clearly defined and explained. Resources will be provided for use by both the consumers and the license holders.
2 CE HR Stay in Your Lane- #45042
This course by Candace Cooke will help agents and brokers their obligation to represent their clients to the best of their ability. TREC provides guidelines for the license holders to make sure they are competent. However, often an agent or broker may step outside of their competency to take care of a favorite client. This course will discuss how to make sure you stay in your lane and represent your clients appropriately. Additionally, the students will learn about current disciplinary cases and the consequences from swerving outside of the appropriate area.
2 CE HR Timelines, Why Dates and Deadlines are Important- #45022
This course by Candy Cooke will help agents and brokers understand what happens when the parties sign the offer and insert the effective date. It seems that a clear schedule has been set. Then the “What Ifs” start. Each part of the contract introduces new areas that could create issues for all parties involved. Utilizing the promulgated One to Four Family Residential Contract, students will become familiar with the different paragraphs that may require some problem solving to help their clients purchase the property.
