2. The Random LARA Audits Are Starting…Are YOU Prepared?
We’re sure you’ve heard by now that the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) will begin conducting random audits of continuing education (CE) credit hours for real estate professionals this month. The audit will cover CE required during the license cycle of November 1, 2012 to October 31, 2015.
The good news is, with the partnership of LARA and CE Marketplace you now have a FREE, convenient and easy-to-use tool at your fingertips to help you track your continuing education courses and ensure compliance with the regulations. Be prepared by visiting CE Marketplace today. To access your record on CE Marketplace you will need to create an account, if you haven’t already. Have your real estate license number (Permanent ID no.) handy as you will need that for the registration process. It’s as simple as that!
All CE Marketplace certified courses are reported to your record and once you create a profile login, you have the ability to upload certificates for courses completed which are not CE Marketplace certified. Be sure to select the correct education period when entering your self-reported credit hours. CE hours earned in 2013 and 2014 should have been submitted to LARA from your course provider, so you do not need to upload those to your record. Courses dated January 1-December 31, 2015 may be added for last cycle. Credits earned in 2016 can only be recorded in the current licensing cycle.
For questions about using CE Marketplace and how to track your continuing education requirements, visit: www.cemarketplace.net, write: firstname.lastname@example.org, or call: 844.642.6633.
