AREC Extends Virtual CE Options Through September 30

HAAR Leadership urged AREC to reconsider original deadline for virtual education options.

The Alabama Real Estate Commission (AREC) announced today, April 21, 2020, during their regular public meeting they would extend the option for REALTORSĀ® to attend continuing education classes and earn CE hours through virtual platforms like Zoom.
AREC had previously indicated that the virtual option for classroom courses would expire on April 30, 2022. On March 1, HAAR President Isaac Winkles and Josh McFall wrote to the commission, urging them to reconsider extending the virtual classroom option until the continuing education deadline on September 30, 2022.
AREC also reported that some real estate schools may have to submit a Plan of Action & Milestones (POAM) by May 30. HAAR and AREC will work to ensure further information on this is communicated to appropriate schools as soon as possible.
