Course Registration
Course registration is simple! Review the available courses, add your selected courses to the shopping cart, set up your username and password, complete your profile information as needed for your Certificate of Completion and proceed to checkout.  As soon as you complete your registration, you may immediately begin your coursework.

It is important that information on the registration portal is accurate. This is the information that will print on your Certificate of Completion. Failure to provide accurate information will result in not receiving course credit.

Enrollment in our online course is unlimited, so you don’t have to worry about an online course being full. There is no need to print material before you begin a course.  Instructors are available by phone or email to answer any question you may have. The WeCare Team is available during normal business hours to assist you in the registration process and answer any questions you may have.

All courses require your acceptance of a course Statement of Policy.  This Statement of Policy is available for review at the beginning of your coursework.  It is important that you thoroughly read this document. By agreeing to its contents, you are agreeing to the course policies.

Completing a Course
Courses are available to you online 24 hours a day. It is not necessary to complete an entire course in one sitting. You may log in and out of the course as often as you wish.  The system will start you back at the last section you completed before logging out.

The system will automatically log you out due to periods of inactivity. The timing is set to ten minutes per content page. If you get timed out, you may simply log back in and continue from where you left off unless you are in an exam.

Length of Course Material
Unless otherwise stated, the courses within the 1st Choice Real Estate School website have been certified by the state licensing authority. 1st Choice Real Estate School may be required by state regulation to submit a summary time-study form to ensure students are completing course material at the time length certified by the state. 1st Choice Real Estate School maintains the right to revoke any Certificate of Completion in which a student spends less that the state required time in the coursework.

Print Material
It is not required that you print any material in order to complete a course; however, you can print from the Resources tab in each chapter. The material contained in this course is available to you exclusively. All copying, printing, duplicating, or use beyond the scope of this site is expressly prohibited and violators will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Course quizzes and final examinations are not available for print.

Course Expiration and Review
All online pre-examination courses must be completed within 90 days from the date of enrollment. 1st Choice Real Estate School may, at its own discretion, allow a one-time course extension for $100. This course extension will give an additional 90 days to complete the coursework. Extension requests must be made by contacting a member of the WeCare team at wecare@1stChoiceSchool.com.

Unless otherwise stated on your specific state course page, continuing education courses must be completed before the end of your state-specific licensing renewal period.

Certificates of Completion
A Certificate of Completion is available at the end of each course. Course certificates can be obtained after all portions of a course are completed. This includes the completion of all chapters, lessons, activities, quizzes and the final quiz.

To retrieve your Certificate of Completion, under your Dashboard, click the Certificates tab.  Click the Download link to print your certificate.

Certificates of completion are available online for you to print as soon as you complete your coursework – and they will always be available online for you to access at any time.
