      How Online Courses Work


    All of Clare Institute's online continuing education courses (Ethics, Agency, Fair Housing, Trust Fund, Risk Management, Real Estate Contracts, Disclosure Obligations and Financing & TRID) include online quizzes for each lesson. Quizzes must be completed to advance within the online course material, however no passing grades are required to proceed to subsequent levels. Immediately after each quiz is submitted you will receive a summary of how you answered the quiz questions, plus links to relevant text within the reading material, and passwords for the next lesson of the course.

    The questions are sequentially related to the reading in the text. The answer to question 1 will be found at the beginning of the assignment. The answer to question 2 will follow the answer to question 1. The answer to question 3 will follow that of question 2, etc.

    Final Examination - Online

    Passing each course is dependent upon you receiving a score of 70% or better on each final examination. These tests may be taken OPEN BOOK. Please see the chart above for specifics on number of questions and times allowed for each final exam.

    If you choose to take our online continuing education courses you will be able to take the final examination ONLINE, without the need for monitored testing. Our online courses do not require books, you can do the reading directly online. However, if you choose, you can purchase printed course booklets and still take the final examination online. This is another great reason to register for the Clare Institute's online continuing education courses.

    For all online students, your Certificate of Completion/Transcript is issued by our office, via email, within one business day of completion of the courses.
