(a) The primary consideration in determining
whether a specific activity qualifies as an acceptable alternative to
attendance at approved continuing education offerings is that it must include
either presentation, development, authorship or research of information and
materials designed to contribute directly to assuring that licensees maintain a
reasonable currency of knowledge as a basis for a level of real estate practice
as set forth in Business and Professions Code Section
Equivalent activities may include but not
be limited to:
(1) Attendance at courses not
approved by the Commissioner.
Instructing others in approved continuing education for real estate license
(3) Instruction or
presentation of real estate related topics if the petitioner can demonstrate
that the material conveyed contained reasonably current information designed to
assist real estate licensees in providing a high level of consumer protection
(4) Authorship of
published professional articles, periodicals or books on current real estate
procedures and law.
Activities engaged in during the course of a licensee's normal occupation shall
not be acceptable for a claim of equivalency unless such activities comply with
subsections (a) and (b).
Development of real estate education programs shall be given continuing
education credit if the program would otherwise meet the requirements necessary
for approval for continuing education credit.
(1) Sole authorship or development of a real
estate educational program shall be credited upon an approved petition, with
two hours continuing education credit for each hour of the program entitled to
continuing education credit.
Multiple authorship and development of a real estate educational program shall
be credited, upon approval of a petition, based on the percentage each author
or developer contributed to the total offering.
