CE Deadline Extended

posted Apr 24, 2013, 3:04 PM by Victor Kaminski

The deadline to complete ce training without penalty has been extended.

UPDATE:
The April 30 Continuing Education deadline was extended until May 31 by the New Jersey Real Estate Commission (REC) at their regular meeting 4/23/13. The vote extends the early deadline to May 31 for real estate brokers, broker-salespersons and salespersons to complete continuing education requirements without incurring a $200 processing fee.
Every individual licensed as a broker, broker-salesperson or salesperson must complete 12 hours of CE before July 1, 2013 to renew a license or to reinstate an unrenewed license. In order to avoid the $200 processing fee, all CE credits must be completed by May 31. Those who do not complete their CE requirement before May 31 must pay the $200 "processing fee" as well as complete the 12 hours of classes before they can relicense.

Don't wait until the last minute, take your CE training classes now.


Do you know anyone else needing CE credits yet? Bring them along as well.

CE Credits for Licensing Class

posted Jun 6, 2012, 9:11 AM by Victor Kaminski   [ updated Jun 6, 2012, 9:26 AM ]

Real Estate licensing classes will not always satisfy your
"CE" Continuing Education licensing requirement.

continuing education questions and answers
If you recently took a real estate licensing course at our school or any other school in New Jersey you may find yourself unable to renew your license without taking additional classes. If you find yourself asking do I need to take ce classes if I just took a real estate licensing course here is your answer.

The new real estate licensing laws state that any student completing a salesperson's course prior to June 30th in even numbered years would still be required to take additional CE or Continuing Education classes to meet the 12 hour CE license renewal requirement.

Anyone who has completed a brokers course any time between licensing periods would have satisfied the full 12 hour CE course requirement.

Salesperson classes completed after June 30th in even numbered years will count toward your full 12 hour continuing education licensing requirement for the current licensing period and there is nothing more you need to do except ensure your credits have been applied to your license by the school where you took your class. 

Important Notice: Students who complete the salesperson class between June 30th in odd numbered years to June 30th in even numbered years will NOT get credit and will still have to take "CE" Continuing Education classes in order to renew their licenses.

Where can I take a CE class?
take real estate ce class online from home
Meet your full 12 hour real estate CE class credit requirement by taking class at home  online whenever you'd like, in the middle of the night at home in your pj's at anytime for as little as $89 at www.NJRealEstateCE.com

REAL ESTATE SCHOOL WARNING

posted Oct 4, 2011, 4:00 PM by Victor Kaminski   [ updated Feb 20, 2012, 11:03 AM ]

NJ REAL ESTATE SCHOOL STUDENT
WARNING

Make sure any school you plan to attend in-class or online is approved by the New Jersey real estate commission (REC) for pre-licensing and (CE) continuing education otherwise you may be wasting your money and your time.

New Jersey does not allow initial licensing courses online, only in class so be aware.

Career Path Academy has some of the most affordable courses for real estate education around. We are very competitive in our pricing and adhere to highest education standards.

That being said find it interesting we have had many rude people calling lately saying they've seen the classes elsewhere for $150!!!

Wake up, you get what you pay for. I highly doubt these courses are being offered by approved and licensed schools and if they are, use your common sense and ask how they can deliver the a superior education to you while paying teachers well below minimum wage based on those fees? Also if the class is online, it's called "Professional Development" and has nothing to do with pre-licensure or continuing education credits.

First bit of advice don't be rude, we reserve the right to turn away jerks from enrolling. Don't be cheap about your education or your career. To get started in the industry including school costs potential agents should have $1200 to $1500 to get started, that's pretty cheap for starting a new career. If you're ready to get your New Jersey real estate salesperson license or upgrade to a brokers license we will gladly accept and help you but don't ask for ridiculous discounts or financing in addition to our already low prices, periodic specials or current product offerings.

Keep in mind that some lesser schools try to compete by cutting corners, some do it out of desperation others by breaking rules which can harm you in the end. We've heard that some schools are  offering salesperson courses for less than what it costs to pay the instructors their regular pay, needless to say if that is true, the instructors won't be very motivated teaching these classes, worse yet they may not care much if you pass or fail. Something we guarantee with our iron clad free course retake offer.

Career Path Academy is different, we offer more classes in our schedules and we post them for all to see online unlike others. All our courses are designed to be the fastest without cutting corners or shaving off state mandated  hours from the course which may effect your ability to get your license or stand as reason to have it revoked at a later time and face stiff fines. We don't cut those corners yet offer some of the best prices around and we will do our best to ensure you pass not only the school but your state exam. See our student review videos to find out what some of our students have to say about us.

Some real estate agencies opened their own schools once continuing education became a requirement in New Jersey in hopes they'd get rich quick. We can guarantee many will not be around long. In the last year well over 100, possibly 200 new schools have opened in New Jersey due to continuing education illusion of fortune in these brokers eyes while others just use their schools as their own personal recruiting tool, NOT very ethical and neither of which will be very helpful to you. If they have an agency they're not suppose to talk about it per real estate commission rules. We've heard from instructors as well as students tell us that despite REC rules, these schools spend a lot of time in class trying to recruit heavily instead of concentrating on teaching you properly to succeed.
  • Do you want to work for an unethical agency recruiting thru an unethical school?
  • Do you want to learn how to pass the exam or pay to be a target for a recruitment plan?
Our suggestion is concentrate on your studies get your license then interview agencies once you're knowledgeable enough to know what to ask.

Our brokers courses are the fastest part time classes available without cutting corners or REQUIRED hours. Our courses are faster than most full time courses others offer, it's all in the scheduling. Career Path Academy real estate school courses allow you to complete your real estate broker or salesperson education requirement in the fastest way possible without cutting corners and robbing you of a quality education.

We've heard others trying to convince potential students their classes are faster, I'd worry more worry about what they're NOT telling you.


Career Path Academy takes great care in creating schedules ensuring adherence to REC (real estate commission) requirements yet does not restrict the student. With the other guys, miss a class and you're done, you won't have enough classroom hours to get your license. WHOOPS!!!

Career Path Academy's courses are Guaranteed.
If you don't pass the state exam, you can retake the course with us FREE within 1 year of completion.

Career Path Academy is different from other real estate schools because we care what happens to you AFTER you pay for the class. We will do our best to ensure you pass the state exam as long as you are willing to do your part and study as we advise.


Any schools claiming their part time classes are quicker are lying or cutting corners, neither helpful to you.
If you miss a single day OR come in an hour late even in case of emergency you won't meet state mandated hours in class requirement and come test time you won't have as much instruction covering all the materials because too much class time was cut out of the course you paid good money for. You just got robbed!
Oh... by the way, our classes cost less than most other schools.


A lesser school will use tricks such as cutting hours, the state requires you complete 80% of the mandatory hours prescribed by state law for licensure, a salesperson class requires 75 hours, brokers licensing class requires 3 module courses totaling 150 hours to become broker.

The trick, instead of attending a 75 hour salesperson class you will attend only 60 in a brokers course instead of attending 150 hours of instruction you will attend 120, this only cheats the students of 30 hours class instruction you will need. They usually won't tell you about that part. In these cases if you miss one class or one hour you won't meet the legal requirements for licensure without committing fraud, an offense that can cause your license to be revoked if ever discovered, still think it's worth the risk?


So why cut corners and get stressed out to shave a 1 or 2 days off the course again? Is it worth it?

NJ REC Printed Licenses Freeze

posted Apr 15, 2011, 12:24 PM by Victor Kaminski   [ updated Apr 15, 2011, 3:39 PM ]

NJ REC Printed License Notice BULLETIN NO. 11-07

Per the New Jersey Real Estate Commission BULLETIN NO.11-07 they will not be mailing new, updated or license corrections in printed form until after some modifications have been completed with the real estate commissions license processing system.

A new license for the transferred or renewed licensee will not be mailed until midsummer of 2011 when system modifications are completed. The REC is still issuing licenses, corrections and renewals, they are just not sending them out on paper until their systems have been updated.

The purpose of this bulletin is to notify all real estate licensees that, commencing
April 5, 2011 and continuing through a date yet to be determined, the Department of
Banking and Insurance (“Department”) will delay the issuance of paper licenses on all
real estate licensing transactions. The delay will affect all transaction types, including
renewals, applications for initial licensure, transfers, reinstatements, name changes, etc.,
either manually processed by the Real Estate Licensing Bureau or completed through the
Real Estate On-line Licensing Services function.

Pursuant to recently enacted legislation (P.L. 2009 c. 238), as of July 1, 2011,
individuals may be issued a license as a “Real Estate Referral Agent.” It is anticipated
that as many as 30,000 or more currently licensed individuals may apply to change their
license type to that of a referral agent. Notification of the process to be used to apply
for licensure as a referral agent will be provided in a future bulletin. In order to
realize efficiencies and save the cost of printing and mailing two licenses for each person
who renews their current license for the 2011-2013 license term and then applies for a
license as a referral agent, it has been determined that NO LICENSES WILL BE
PRINTED for any licensing transactions until such time as the computer system
modifications required to generate referral agent licenses are completed.

To verify that applications for initial licensure as a salesperson, brokersalesperson
or broker, and applications for the renewal, transfer or reinstatement of a
license, or for any other license transaction have been successfully processed, brokers and
individual licensees may access the “Licensee Search” function available on the
Department’s website at https://www16.state.nj.us/DOBI_LicSearch/recSearch.jsp.
(After entering the licensee’s name and license type and clicking on “actively licensed”
from the license status drop-down list, and then clicking on the “Search” button, general
information on the licensee will appear. By then clicking on the “Actively Licensed” box
in the record on the individual who is the subject of the search, a printable screen
containing detailed information on that licensee can be viewed and printed.)

The data reflected on the Licensee Search reflects the official licensing record of the Department
on the individual on whom the search is made. Generally, licensing transactions
completed on-line through the broker portal available at http://www.njdobi-ols.net are
reflected on the Licensee Search database 48 hours after the electronic transaction is
completed.

Transactions completed on paper applications require additional time to
process, so licensees should continue to check on the License Search function until
evidence of the completion of the transaction appears. Brokers wishing to retain a paper
record of a completed licensing transaction may print the screen on the individual who
was the subject of the transaction that appears on the “Licensee Search” and confirms that
the transaction was accomplished, and retain the printed screen as their record. (Brokers
who use the On-line Licensing Services function can print the screen depicting the
successfully completed transaction and retain that document as their licensing record, in
lieu of going into the “Licensee Search” function to do so.) Confirmation of the status of
completed renewal applications is provided through the on-line renewal system.

Upon the completion of the necessary system modifications following the 2011
renewal process and the processing of the large volume of applications for referral agent
licensure anticipated to be submitted subsequent to July 1, 2011, the Department will
print and mail to brokers the licenses of all persons licensed with their firms as of the date
the licenses are printed, including those licensed as referral agents. Such licenses will
reflect the processing of all renewals and of the other transactions referenced herein.
NOTE: At this time, the Department does not expect the system modifications to be
functional until mid-summer.

In the interim, persons initially licensed, and licensees who transfer to or reinstate
their licenses with your firm may comply with the “pocket card” requirement imposed by
N.J.S.A. 45:15-14 by having in their possession a copy of a print out from the Licensee
Search function or from the On-line Licensing Services function that confirms that they
are actively licensed with your firm.

The statements in this bulletin supersede any contrary information with respect to
the mailing of licenses that may appear on any other forms or notices issued by the
Department or the Real Estate Commission, including, but not limited to the Instructions
for the 2011-2013 real estate license renewal process.

All interested parties should monitor the web page of the Real Estate Commission
where additional information will be posted as it becomes available.

Brokers are strongly urged to disseminate this bulletin to all broker-salespersons
and salespersons licensed with their firms.
