N.J. Admin. Code § 11:5-12.7 - Continuing education providers; responsibilities

Current through Register Vol. 54, No. 7, April 4, 2022

(a) Providers' responsibilities shall include the following:
1. The general supervision of the continuing education courses;
2. Ensuring the offered course and instructor have been approved by the Commission;
3. Ensuring that the instructor is knowledgeable in the subject matter of each course offered by the provider that is taught by that instructor;
4. Securing, maintaining, and reporting upon evaluations of courses and instructors as set forth in 11:5-12.8(h) and (i);
5. All recordkeeping and supplying of information to the Commission or its designee in accordance with the provisions of this subchapter; and
6. Ensuring that all course offerings comply with the requirements imposed by this subchapter (for example, appropriate facilities).
(b) Providers shall notify the Commission in writing prior to any change in the provider's business name(s), its continuing education coordinator and the contact information for that individual, the provider's business telephone number, or any material change in its qualifications (for example, a change in the provider's location at which classroom-based courses are offered).
(c) Each non-distance learning course shall be conducted at a location and in such facilities as shall be appropriate to properly present the course. The providers of such courses shall ensure that they are conducted at times and in locations that are conducive to learning, free of excessive distractions and segregated from non-course related activity, including any solicitation activity directed to attendees of the course. The facilities at which such courses are offered shall comply with all local, state and Federal laws and regulations.
(d) Providers shall be responsible for verifying attendance at each continuing education course delivered in a classroom or conference room setting, or verifying completion of each continuing education course delivered via distance learning, by the licensee who, based upon information reported by the provider, will receive credit for having completed the course.
1. Providers of non-distance learning continuing education courses shall verify the identity of all individuals attending such courses. Providers may do so by requiring such individuals to present a driver's license or other form of photographic identification and their real estate license pocket card to a representative of the course provider at the location where the course is offered, or through other means that assure that the individual attending the course is the licensee who registered for the course.
(e) Prior to a student's completion of the process of registering for a continuing education course and a provider's acceptance of any fee related to such registration, the course provider shall provide prospective students with a notice which specifies the number of credits for which the course is approved and whether the course is on a core or elective topic. The notice shall also include information about course fees, refund policies, course subject matter and learning objectives, procedures and requirements for satisfactory course completion.
(f) Continuing education course providers shall enable representatives of the Commission to attend an in-person course or review a distance learning course in the form it is offered at no cost to the Commission.
