All scheduled classes through August will be transitioned to live-stream webinars. You will still be able to interact as if you were in the classroom. Save on travel expenses!
Is the Arkansas Real Estate School still open?
Yes! We are still operating, following the directives of the Arkansas Real Estate Commission. Our office is currently closed to meetings and gatherings, including in classroom classes. In order to continue providing the education you need, we have been temporarily approved to provide live-stream classes. To see updates on AREC concerning COVID-19 restrictions, please visit their website at www.arec.arkansas.gov
What is “Live-Stream”? And how can I be a part of it?
Live-Streamed classes are just that, real-time instruction streamed to your location. Participation is similar to Facetime or a live webinar. Class peers, instructor and moderator are all visible and participating in real-time. While you can use your phone, we recommend participating via PC or laptop for best viewing of materials. The setting is as if you are in the classroom with the ability to ask questions and network with oters from the convenience of your own home or office. We are currently using Zoom as our platform.
When will you resume classes in the classroom?
Due to the nature of the current pandemic, we do not currently have a time line and are planning one month at a time. When in-person classes resume, the schedule will list the location of the class rather than “Live Stream”. We will keep out website updated with any changes.
Shouldn’t I wait until the virus is over to register?
Since we do not have a solid timeline, we encourage you to keep reaching for your dreams. Our instructor has put together several materials, in addition to your normal handouts and text book, to assist you through this. You are always welcome to sit through class again to refresh before your exam. We hold classes monthly.
What about my application and exam eligibility deadline?
Please visit the AREC website for additional information and extensions on deadlines here: https://www.arec.arkansas.gov/news_post/covid-19-updates-from-arec/
Can I still schedule my exam?
Yes! PearsonVue is currently taking appointments. You need to apply for the exam and receive your letter of eligibility BEFORE you can schedule your exam. Due to the enforcement of social distancing, there is currently a wait period and we encourage you to use that time to study or sit in on the current class to refresh for free!
Your school usually does the notary service and fingerprinting, will you still provide this to us?
As stated previously, we are under the governing directives of AREC and our office is closed to in office meetings.
Arkansas State Police are currently restricting this service to medical personnel. You may schedule your finger printing at www.arkansaslivescan.com for $10 OR www.littlerockarmoury.com for $20
You may get your application notarized at most local banks for free.
How long do I have to register for the class?
You may register for any class up to the time of the scheduled class.
What about the materials? How do I get them?
All CE (continuing education) classes will be sent materials in digital format via email.
For all Pre and Post licensing classes, materiel will be mailed as long as registration is five (5) days prior to the course. If you register after that date, your material will be sent digitally OR you may pick up material by arranging a time with our office manager by calling 501-223-2737 or email email@example.com
Do we get breaks?
Yes, you will get a 10 minute break every hour. You will also have a lunch break. If you need to get up to use the restroom etc, please do so. Just like when you are in the actual classroom.
Is it okay if I get my hair done/drive my car/babysit/work another job/garden/clean house/etc while class is going on?
No. If you are not fully participating as if you are in a classroom setting, your time will not count toward the 60 hour required time to complete the course. Time missed will have to be made up at the next available class. If you miss 10 minutes within a hour, AREC requires you make up the entire hour.
