The time has come to revise the content of the Risk Management course that is required for all real estate licensees. As a result of a ruling by commissioners and an amendment to Rule 790-X-1-.11 of Alabama License Law, the CE requirements for the next license period will be 6 hours in Risk Management courses (Levels 1 and 2) and 9 hours in other Commission-approved courses.
As shared in a June 29 memorandum, the new Risk Management courses consist of the following:
When 6 hours of Risk Management have been completed, the remaining 9 hours of CE can be any Commission-approved courses.
All instructors who plan on teaching Risk Management next license period must attend this instructor training. You must attend all 12 hours of the training to receive approval to teach one or all of the courses. Those who do not attend will not be able to teach Risk Management until the training has been offered again. All three Risk Management courses will be covered in this training.
Jim Lawrence and Anne Powell will be presenting the information and helping everyone prepare for instruction since they were involved in the development of the new courses.
Jim is the Education Director for the Alabama Center for Real Estate (ACRE) in Tuscaloosa and has been busy developing and offering education since accepting that position last year. Since January of 2012, ACRE has offered over 60 CE courses teaching over 4,000 licensees.
Anne is the Director of Career Development at Roberts Brothers Company in Mobile and is a senior member of ACRE's Leadership Council. She has also served on the Commission's Education Advisory Committee for two years.
The training is being held at the Hyundai Training Center in Montgomery just off of I-65 at Exit 164 (Pintlala/Hope Hull). After exiting, follow the road signs to Hyundai Boulevard. Take a right at the Pace Car onto Hyundai Boulevard and cross over the interstate. Take a left into the Hyundai Training Center with the white fence and fountain in front. A block of 80 rooms is available at the Fairfield Inn & Suites (334-281-6882) and the Hampton Inn (334-280-9592) at the same exit for a group rate of $75 per night for the nights of October 10 and 11. You must reserve a room within two weeks of the training to get the special room rate. Tell them you are with the "AREC Risk Management" group.
A Hyundai plant tour is available for those who are interested. A tour accommodating up to 32 people will be offered each day at lunch. Participants will be able to eat upon return. If you would like to take the tour, let us know when registering online or using the registration form. The tour will be closed when 64 registrants have identified their desire to take the tour.
The two days of training will provide attendees with all 12 hours required for instructor renewal in 2013. Remember, these hours are not interchangeable with CE hours that are needed to renew your broker license. These CE hours are only applied toward the renewal of your instructor approval. Make plans to attend this instructor training and acquire not only the approval and knowledge to teach the new Risk Management courses but also the hours needed for instructor renewal.
