New rules prescribed by Michigan’s own LARA require that all Michigan real estate brokers and salespersons complete a minimum of two hours in the legal update topics.
Here is an excerpt directly from a LARA Bulletin:
“As a condition of renewal, a licensee must complete at least 18 clock hours of CE courses that involve any subjects that are relevant to the management, operation, and practice of real estate or any other subject that contributes to the professional competence of a licensee, and at least 2 of those hours of CE must be completed in each license cycle year that involve law, rules, and court cases regarding real estate.”
Keep Me Certified produces and offers a new Legal Update course every year focusing on topics that are new, relevant, and timely. 2021 has been a unique and interesting year to say the least. It has possibly been one of the most dynamic years for real estate regulations.
