Designated Broker Course




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.

Classes are held on Zoom on Tuesday and Fridays, 9:00 am – 1:00 pm, on the following dates:
