Important Course Information
TREC Guideline Update effective September 1, 2017
New guidelines now require students of this course to have their exams proctored, and you have the right to request a criminal history evaluation (where applicable) before enrolling in the courses or applying for a license.
Under the new rules, you will be required to find an eligible Proctor and give the exam in his/her presence to qualify for a completion certificate. The following are acceptable third party proctors:
(A) employees at official testing or learning/tutoring centers;
(B) librarians at a school, university, or public library;
(C) college or university administrators, faculty, or academic advisors;
(D) clergy who are affiliated with a specific temple, synagogue, mosque, or church; and
(E) educational officers of a military installation or correctional facility.
We encourage you to complete your courses before August 31, 2017. Course completion includes submitting all course completion information before August 31, 2017. After this deadline, you will need to abide by the new rules.
Additionally, you may request a criminal history evaluation before enrolling in courses or applying for a real estate license, as set out in Texas Occupations Code §53.025 and TREC Rule 541.1. If you have any criminal offenses, unpaid judgments, had disciplinary action taken against a professional or occupational license, or have performed an unlicensed activity, TREC requires you to consider submitting a completed Moral Character Determination Form before applying for a license.
