The material is covered in four modules. In each module, there are questions based on the text, followed by a quiz. Students work on a module, then mail it in for review and grading of the quiz. The completed module is returned with answers to the questions and quizzes. The last module has a final exam. On completing the course with a grade of 75 or better, students will receive a certificate of completion that will enable them to take the Pearson VUE state exam. Students have one year to complete the course.
Upon passing the Pearson VUE exam with a grade of 75 or better, students can apply for their Sales Agents License and join a Maine Real Estate Company and practice real estate.
