By declaration of Governor Fallin new rules of the Oklahoma Real Estate Commission were approved on June 19th, 2014 which will mean that beginning on September 12th, 2014 the following new rules will be applicable;
Licensees will now be required to take at least one hour each in six required topics, with remainder being made up in elective hours. The required topics will be Broker Relationships Act, Fair Housing, Professional Conduct, Current Issue or “hot” topic and two new required topics: Contracts and Forms and Code and Rules. These new requirements will NOT apply to any licensee who has completed the continuing education for their current license term prior to June 30, 2014, or for any licensee that renews their license prior to September 12, 2014.
Another change in education deals with out-of-state licensees. Beginning September 12, 2014, every non-resident licensee will be required to take Oklahoma-specific classes each license term, regardless of the education they’d had in their home state. These new required courses include Oklahoma-specific Contract and Forms, Code and Rules and the Broker Relationship Act.
