Any real estate licensee who currently has the Supervising Broker endorsement must complete a 4 hour designated "Supervising Broker" course each year as part of their 12 hours of annual continuing education in order to maintain the endorsement and continue to supervise salespeople. The CE Shop currently does not offer this course.
Beginning with the 2012 license year, the Board of Realty Regulation will be implementing a requirement that all Montana real estate licensees take a required Core Course in addition to the currently required 12 hours of continuing education. The hours for the core course may change from year to year depending on the depth and breadth of information the Board would like to see covered. For the 2012 license year, the core course was 4 hours long. For the 2013 license year, the core course is 3 hours long. This means that for the 2013 license year, all licensees will be required to take 15 total hours of education — one 3-hour Core Course (one for real estate licensees and one for property managers) and 12 hours additional continuing education (with at least 4 hours of the 12 from a mandatory topic). If the licensee holds both a property managers license and a real estate license they will be required to take both the property management core course and the real estate core course. Currently, The CE Shop does not offer the Property Manager Core course at this time.
Per ARM 24.210.829, beginning November 1, 2007, new property management licensees are required to complete 12 hours of new licensee mandatory continuing education by the second renewal date as set by ARM 24.1010.413 following their original license issue date. Six of these hours must consist of: (a) two hours of trust accounts, (b) two hours of leasing principles, (c) two hours of state law update. The CE Shop currently does not have these courses.
