(OnlineEd) – The California DRE’s Education Section is the body that monitors education real estate continuing education course providers. The course provider receives a unique course number from the DRE once the course is approved for continuing education. The course provider then gives these course approval numbers to licensees who complete the courses and associated final examinations for use during the license renewal process.
The Education Section of the DRE is also responsible for auditing their licensees’ continuing education records. A licensee who cannot provide the DRE with course completion certificates when requested is subject to disciplinary action. Licensees should keep copies of all course completion certificates for at least five years.
OnlineEd® is a DRE approved real estate pre-license and continuing educaiton course provider under school number 4056.
