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

2018 is license renewal year and all licensees must complete 15 hours of continuing education. I have taken the guesswork out it for you. Attend our two-day sessions and receive all required CE credits, regardless whether you are a salesperson or a broker. The courses taught and the dates offered are listed below.

AREI will maintain your school records including your exam scores for four years at the minimum.  

Signed Student Affidavit

AREI requires that you certify that you have personally completed each module of a distance learning course and any written exercise or assessment required for completion of the course. You must provide an electronic signed Student Affidavit to the school before scheduling any course examination and before the school may certify your completion in any course. The school will not process your course completion without your submitting a signed Affidavit and Course Evaluation form. This form is available online and you will electronically submit this to your school when you have completed all required modules of the course. This from will appear on your course homepage once you have completed the course lessons.

In order for AREI to certify that you have completed a course, you must:

  1. complete all instructional lessons in the course
  2. Submit a signed and dated Student Affidavit
  3. pass the required course final examination at an approved school location.
  4. Complete a signed course Evaluation

Course Completion Records:  AREI will supply you with a certificate of completion.

The OnCourse Learning System:  The OnCourse Learning System represents an entirely new approach to instruction administered using a computer.  The primary feature that distinguishes this system from more traditional computer-based instruction (CBI) is that the system is designed around proven instructional strategies, rather than around the capabilities of the computer.

How Our Course Monitors and Evaluates Your Progress and Provides Feedback: 

OnCourse courses utilize the personal computer to perform the functions traditionally performed by the teacher. Using OnCourse courseware, the computer becomes essentially a one-on-one tutor.  It presents the material to be learned, provides adequate explanation to ensure that you understand what is being presented, and requires that you demonstrate your understanding through active participation in the learning process.  

More importantly, it acts as a constant monitor of what you know and don’t know and uses that information to dynamically adjust the presentation to meet your needs as you learn. The result of this process is that the courseware provides a fully self-contained instructional program that can adjust to your specific needs which may vary widely both in the amount of knowledge you bring into the learning session as well as your learning ability (i.e., how quickly you learn.  In addition, no other resources (such as books or teachers) are normally needed to accomplish the educational objectives of a particular course.

How to best take an OnCourse course

Spending too much time in any one session will burn you out.  Remember, our program actually challenges you to LEARN the material not just skim over text. So, we recommend you split up your effort into 30-40 minute sessions. You can do more than one session per day (recommended) but, try to do something everyday.  The consistency of effort (particularly for any prelicense courses) is what will produce the best learning for you.

As you work on the course, your time in each lesson is recorded as well as how many questions are presented and how many attempts were required to answer the question correctly.  So, the learning system serves as a record of attendance and academic achievement.

Refund Policy: You have the right to cancel your registration for any reason within seven  (7) business days from the date of purchase. Requests for cancellation of a registration must be made by contacting AREI by phone, or email. The request must be received by AREI before midnight of the seventh business day from the date of purchase.
A cancellation fee will be charged to the student to cancel a registration. The amount of the cancellation fee is 15% of the total purchase amount.

Student Services, Rights, Privileges and Responsibilities:  Upon successful completion of a course, each student credits will be reported to the state within 72 hours.

 

Technical Support:  

You can contact Tech Support at 800-743-8703 or by email at techsupport@oncourselearning.com. Their hours of operations are Monday through Friday 8:00 AM EST to 5:30 PM CT.  Email support is available during normal business hours. Emails received after normal business hours will be answered the following business day.  Before you call, please be prepared to explain your problem in detail and have access to your computer. In order to effectively troubleshoot your issue, our technicians begin the call by asking you a series of questions regarding your operating environment.  We will need to know what type of computer you are using, the operating system you are using, the version number of any associated software. Your calls may be documented or monitored to help us maintain quality of service standards.
