Real Estate Agency
Chapter 863

Rule Caption: Changes information required for continuing edu­cation provider applicants who petition the Board.

Adm. Order No.: REA 1-2011(Temp)

Filed with Sec. of State: 2-3-2011

Certified to be Effective: 2-4-11 thru 8-3-11

Notice Publication Date:

Rules Amended: 863-020-0025

Subject: The Real Estate Agency began certifying continuing education providers in July 2010. An applicant for certification must meet one of the qualifications listed in statute. If an applicant does not qualify, the applicant may petition the Real Estate Board for approval of the applicant’s qualifications and provide information on the petitioner’s background. Current rule requires the Board to use a standard that the applicant’s qualifications were “substantially similar” to the statutory qualifications. This standard is difficult to use.

      The temporary rule changes the requirements for information the applicant/petitioner must provide to the Board. The applicant/petitioner must provide sufficient information to allow the Board to determine whether the petitioner qualifies to be certified as a continuing education provider. The applicant must submit information that demonstrates the petitioner’s expertise and experience in providing educational courses to real estate licensees, or demonstrates the petitioner’s experience and expertise in one or more course topics eligible for continuing education credit under OAR 863-020-0035.

      The Board is no longer required to use the substantially similar standard. The Board will make a determination based on the information provided by the applicant/petitioner in the petition.
