A $20 fee will be charged for checks returned for insufficient funds. Cancellations within two days of program or students that fail to show will forfeit all funds.

Board Cancellation / Inclement Weather Policy

We reserve the right to cancel any course, if deemed necessary. In the event of a rare cancellation, every effort will be made to contact those who have registered. If classes are canceled due to inclement weather, there will be a notice on the Board Office voicemail system at least 1 ½ hours prior to start time of the class (even if the Board Office is not yet open). We suggest you please call the office 413-442-8049 for cancellation information. Classes cancelled due to inclement weather or illness of instructor will be rescheduled.

Attendance & Certificate of Completion

The Massachusetts Board of Registration requires we keep attendance so PLEASE BE PROMPT! No one will be allowed into the session after the instructor starts. Refunds will not be given to those students who show up late. You will receive a certificate, signed by the instructor for each session you attend. A certificate will not be signed nor submitted to MAR if you leave early.

General Information

Massachusetts Board of Registration of Real Estate Brokers made changes to the Continuing Education Requirement for Licensure of Brokers and Salespeople that took effect January 1, 2001. The requirement continues to be twelve hours of continuing education credits (CEU) to maintain an active license. There is no exam for CEU courses. The new curriculum consists of thirty three modules. Each of these modules is two hours long. Real estate licensees, who wish to practice, must complete any six of the thirty three modules for a total of twelve (12) hours to renew their real estate license for two years. Materials provided as part of the curriculum should only be used for study purposes and should not be disseminated to the general public. Nothing in this curriculum supersedes any state or federal laws or regulations. For more information on CE Requirements, visit our Continuing Education FAQ page.
