Oregon Real Estate Agency to Begin Licensee Continuing Education Audits

(Oregon Real Estate Agency) – The Oregon Real Estate Agency will be conducting continuing education audits. CE audits consist of reviewing the continuing education records of randomly selected real estate licensees who have recently renewed an active license.

Required Records

Selected licensees will need to send in their continuing education records to the Agency for review. A licensee’s continuing education records include:

All licensees have been individually responsible for their own continuing education records since January 1, 2011. Licensees certify that they met the continuing education requirementswhen they renew their licenses.

Some real estate companies or businesses have policies that assist associated licensees with the maintenance of their continuing education records. Licensees still have the responsibility to maintain their records and to respond directly to a CE audit.

Lost Records

Licensees who believe they are missing earned certificates of attendance should contact their certified continuing education providers. The Agency cannot assist licensees in getting certificates from continuing education providers.

Failure to Respond to Audit or to Give Accurate Information

Licensees who are selected for a CE audit but do not respond may face administrative action. Licensees who are found to have provided inaccurate or incorrect information about the completion of continuing education may also be subject to administrative action. An administrative action can mean a reprimand, suspension, or revocation of the license.
