The Designated Broker course is a 50-hour program approved by the Maine Real Estate Commission as meeting the criteria for getting a Maine broker real estate license. To serve as the Designated Broker of an agency, a Brokers license is required.
This course has been traditionally taught live in a classroom setting. However, with the Covid pandemic, the commission has allowed the course to be offered over Zoom, a feature that many students are finding effective and efficient.
The course covers:
- business planning,
- creating a company policy manual,
- risk management, and agent supervision
- problem-solving and ethical
- setting up an effective training program and more.
The course is based on the book, Running a Successful Maine Real Estate Company, by Charles “Kim” Coit.
To get a broker’s license, students need to have 2 years as an associate broker plus a grade of 75 or better in this class.
Course price includes all textbooks and materials.
August and October sessions will be held 9:00 am to 1:00 pm on Zoom and are instructed by Tom Coward.
