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 take you back to the last section you completed before you logged out last.

The system will automatically log you out due to periods of inactivity. The timing is set to five minutes per content page. If you are timed out, you may simply log back in and continue from where you left off unless you are in the middle of 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 within the time certified by the state. 1st Choice Real Estate School maintains the right to revoke any Certificate of Completion in which a student spends less than the state required time in the coursework.

Printing Material
It is not required that you print any material in order to complete a course; however, you can print from your web browser, one page at a time. 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.

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.
