How do the Florida Real Estate Post-Licensing Classroom Courses differ from the Post-Licensing Online Courses?
The difference between classroom education and online education is quite significant.
With our classroom courses you will be taught by professionally trained instructors who are not only experts in the real estate industry, but they also understand how to prepare you for success on the exam. In a classroom setting you are able to ask questions, get clarification on subject matter that you may not understand, network with other professionals and HAVE FUN!
We understand that "going back to school" is not at the top of your to-do list, so we make sure you have a comfortable learning environment that is geared toward your comfort, and our interactive and energetic instructors make sure you have an enjoyable experience. Our reputation for high-quality classroom experiences is the reason why we are the market leader in Florida real estate education.
The online courses are geared toward those individuals who are unable to attend our classroom courses due to geographic location, physical hardship or are very comfortable in an online learning environment. Online learning is not right for everyone, but it can be a very convenient way to complete the required education. Keep in mind, however, if you do choose to complete the education in our online format, that it is up to you to determine when and where you will proceed through the course, as opposed to the classroom course where the schedule is already laid out for you and our instructors will tell you how to proceed through the course material.
Please call us at 239-344-7510 if you have further questions about the difference between classroom and online education or need guidance in making a selection.
I was unable to complete the post licensing education prior to the expiration date due to a physical disability. What should I do?
Florida Administrative Code 61J2-3.020 (9) states:
The Commission will allow an additional 6-month period after the first renewal following initial licensure for brokers and sales associates that cannot, due to individual physical hardship, complete the course or courses within the required time. Individual physical hardship is defined as a case wherein a person desiring to take the Commission-prescribed courses cannot, by reason of a physical hardship, attend the place where the classes are conducted. Any person desiring to complete the education course by means of distance education shall make a request to the Commission in writing, setting forth the basis of the alleged hardship. The Commission shall require said request to be supported by statements of doctors and other persons having knowledge of the facts.
If you are a licensee that has a personal medical hardship and you are required to complete post license education, you may request an extension in writing to:
Division of Real Estate
Attn: Hardship Extension
400 W Robinson St Ste N801
Orlando FL 32801
Please include a letter from your physician stating length of time you have been experiencing the issue and how long they anticipate you will be incapacitated.
Is anyone exempt from the post licensing education requirement?
What happens if I fail my post-licensing end of class examination?
If you fail your CLASSROOM post-licensing end of class examination, you are allowed one (1) retest. The retest will have to be scheduled with one of our exam administrators and will take place on a mutually agreed upon date. If you fail a second time, you must reattend the course in its entirety before being eligible to take the exam again. If you are within your 1-year course enrollment period, there is no additional charge to re-attend our classroom course. However, if you choose to take the online course instead, you will have to pay the full online course tuition.
If you fail the ONLINE post-licensing end of class examination, you are allowed one (1) retest. The retest is available right away in your online portal. If you fail a second time, you must complete the course again in its entirety before being eligible to retest.
Regardless if you are a CLASSROOM or ONLINE post-licensing student, the retest period and the course completion period does not extend beyond your license renewal date. If the course and the exam are not completed by midnight on your license renewal date, your license will become NULL & VOID.
