Virtual Live Courses
METHOD OF INSTRUCTION The method of instruction used for virtual live courses is instructor-based. Should you have any questions or difficulty regarding the course content, the Director of Education, Bob Hart, will be glad to assist you. He can be reached at 770-493-9000 between 8:30 AM and 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday (excluding holidays).
ATTENDANCE Students attending a virtual class must attend using a device that has a video webcam. The video must be enabled so that the student is visible. Failure to enable the video shall result in an official absence. The virtual live class will maintain the same class standards and requirements as if students are physically among their classmates and instructor. Each class session is recorded. The recordings are not available for review and cannot be used to make-up missed time. Students MUST be on time and remain in class for the duration of each class session to receive credit. Students who are more than 30 minutes late are required to make up the entire session. A $20 make-up fee is assessed for each session missed. Students who miss more than two sessions (one full day or two nights) of the course shall be required to repeat the entire course, after paying a fee. Continuing Education Students Please Note: Three (3) and six (6) hour courses are non-refundable and non-transferable, and the time allowed for tardiness, if any, may differ from the above stated time.
HOMEWORK (if applicable) Required homework assignments must be completed satisfactorily before taking a school final examination.
GRADINGCourses with final examinations require a passing score on that exam. If you fail the exam, you may retake the exam one time, no sooner than one day after failing it the first time. If you fail to achieve a passing score on a second examination, you must repeat all course instruction before taking another examination. A RE-ENROLLMENT FEE IS REQUIRED.
COURSE COMPLETION All virtual live courses must be completed within one (1) year of the original enrollment date.
FINAL EXAMINATION Only the Salesperson Prelicense, Postlicense, Broker Prelicense, and Appraiser Qualifying courses require a final examination. All testing must be completed within one (1) year from the date of enrollment.
REFUNDS Once a student has registered, no refunds will be allowed. However, if a student needs to change their starting date from their original enrollment, a $25 transfer fee will apply if transfer is made BEFORE class start date. After class starts, a fee is charged to transfer. The transfer must be to a class that will be completed within one year of the original enrollment date. After one year, the full enrollment fee is required. If a student registers for an in-class course that is switched to a virtual live course after the student has registered, the student may request a refund. The deadline to request a refund is up to seven (7) calendar days after the class start date for prelicense courses, and the first day of class for all other courses. A partial refund may be issued. No refunds will be made after the timeframes stated above. Three (3) and six (6) hour courses are non-refundable and non-transferable.
CERTIFICATION (if applicable) Upon completion of a course (including successfully passing the examination), your certification information is sent electronically to the Georgia Real Estate Commission within two business days from the date it was received. You will not receive a certificate. Contact the Georgia Real Estate Commission to verify the receipt of your hours.
