2. CE Marketplace is Growing!
In the end of 2014, Michigan REALTORS® and LARA announced the changes made to real estate CE. Since then, there has been the launch of www.cemarketplace.net to meet the needs of instructors, sponsors and licensees. We’d like to share with you how the process is going.
In February, the CE Marketplace launched the first of three phases to the new site. This first phase allows for instructors or educators to submit a course to be reviewed for certification under the new state statue. Once a course receives certification, the instructor is informed of the certification and then able to market the class as CE Marketplace certified to licensees and sponsors. Instructors pay a fee of $45 per course to submit for certification, which is good for the entire licensing cycle and will receive marketing and audit support for their certified courses.
Phase two focuses on course sponsors. Sponsors (local associations, brokers, offices) can now search for certified courses on the CE Marketplace site as well. Simply create a profile as a Sponsor and search away! There are currently more than 80 CE Marketplace certified courses available for you to sponsor. As a sponsor you simply request to schedule a class, host the class and submit your attendee list with the appropriate fee ($1.00 per attendee with a real estate license) once the class is completed. Negotiations of fees for instructor remain between you and the instructor and we recommend contacting the instructor before submitting your request to sponsor a class. Upon the submission of the attendee list, CE Marketplace will send the certificates to the licensees and track the CE for the licensee for the cycle and keep the records in case of an audit. We have processed CE for 1,240 licensees from 40 sponsored classes to date.
The final phase will be focused on the licensee services within the CE Marketplace. In June, we will launch the licensee portal. This will allow you to see the CE Marketplace certified courses you have taken. You can also upload the information for your non-CE Marketplace courses. You will receive reports from CE Marketplace outlining the credits attached to your license that have been submitted. What can you do until the licensee portal is open? Look for CE Marketplace certified courses on the course calendar and know your CE will be tracked for you and you will be protected in the situation of an audit from the state.
Regardless of your role in real estate CE, make CE Marketplace your first stop. Visit the site today at www.cemarketplace.net.
