  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.

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, 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. This is another great reason to register for the Clare Institute's online continuing education courses.

Online Completion Certificates/Transcripts

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. This email will contain a link to your signed certificate, with printing directions. Since we have the capability to send you a signed copy in email, you will NOT receive a hard copy in the U.S. Mail. Please save the link to this email should you need to print additional copies at a later date.

Important: It is your responsibility to send the proper renewal forms (with fees) to the California Department of Real Estate. We do not do this on your behalf. We recommend using the eLicensing feature through the California Department of Real Estate's website.
