ATTENDANCE: Students are required to attend all hours of class instruction per the State of Michigan Occupational Code. If a student misses a session, that time needs to be made up during lecture in another Real Estate One Academy Salesperson Fundamentals of Real Estate or Continuing Education course. The schedule can be found here. If you miss the Fair Housing unit you must specifically attend the Fair Housing session in another class. For all other time, we recommend that you attend the class material you missed but this is not a requirement. Time may not be made up by taking courses online or by attending Exam Prep courses.
CERTIFICATION: Upon completion of a course and passing the school final exam, the school will convey the student record of completion to Licensing and Regulatory Affairs within 5 business days. However, students may start the two step state exam registration process immediately after completion. There is no need to wait until the school has notified the State. Continuing Education class completion will be reported to the CE Marketplace according to their policies. Certificates of completion are not required to be uploaded by the student.
