Natalie rallies for better 2020 Core Curriculum!
The Core Curriculum has been updated for 2020-2021! The Core morphs into an new version every two years. It is updated usually by a committee. Natalie is teaching it several times a month on Zoom!
It still has so much material repeated from the last class. There are no new laws or lawsuits that affect our business, which is what we all really want to hear about. But, this is what the Dept of Licensing passed as the curriculum. Natalie wrote letters, made calls and even stood up and rallied the staff at the DOL and the real estate commission at the quarterly meeting to “fix the core that was presented!” That happened! So, though Natalie would have included other current issues, this class that 40,000 licensees are required to take, was updated and changed because Natalie’s voice was heard!
The largest lawsuit in history against the REALTOR Association and most of the major firms is not included in the Core Class. The few commissioners that worked on the core wanted to avoid bringing it up. The REALTORS call the lawsuit “baseless.”
You need to take the Core Curriculum every two years prior to renewing your license. You take whatever core class is available as the old version just morphs into the new version. You have two years to take the Core class.
Here is the Core Curriculum. It is 3 clockhours. http://www.clockhours.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/12/Core-2020-2021-revised-Dec-19.pdf
