Plan Your 2018 CE Vacation

Why not include your family and meet your business requirements at the same time. Plan your 2018 vacation to be taken in Orange Beach or Gulf Shores, enjoying the beautiful Alabama beach, eating wonderful seafood while fulfilling your continuing education all at the same time.

Your Family Vacation

It’s just common sense. You have to complete your state required continuing education before September 30, 2018 anyway. So why not schedule a week vacation for you and your family. While the family is playing on our beautiful beach, you can take only two days of your vacation time to complete your CE requirements. Since the classes are held during the day, you still have the evenings to dine out with the family, and you still have five days of your vacation time to fish, play golf, or soak up the sun with the family.

Huge Tax Deduction

By doing this, you earn a huge bonus. Since this is also a business trip, your vacation becomes a business expense. Why not let the government finance your vacation? It is such a smart decision, some people make two trips a year and only takes one day of classes on each trip. This is a win-win situation for both you and your family.

CE Deadline is Sept. 30, 2018

This Is CE Year—What’s That?

This Is CE Year—What’s That?

CE is an acronym for Continuing Education. You choose the term you want to use for it but don’t forget about it. To a Realtor® CE is of most importance. In Alabama, every licensee that has an active license is required to take a minimum of 15-hour CE during a two year period prior to renewing their real estate license. I’ll explain it for it. In Alabama, real estate agents renew their license every even year; 2010, 2012, 2014, etc. The deadline for license renewal is September 30 every even year. For example; all agents must renew their license by midnight September 30, 2012. If they aren’t renewed, license will automatically be placed inactive by the Alabama Real Estate Commission. Therefore, every active licensee has to complete 15-hours of CE beginning October 1, 2010 and ending midnight September 30, 2012. If this deadline is not met, their license will automatically be placed inactive and can no longer participate in normal real estate practices until certain requirements are met. Do you now see how important CE is?

To confuse the issue just a little more, [Read more…]
