Course Description and Course Details
As a pre-license candidate, Oregon requires you to complete a 150-hour real estate broker pre-license course. This 150-hour course is made up of seven required individual courses we call "modules." These seven modules are:
Agency (15 hours)
Contracts (15 hours)
Real Estate Law (30 hours)
Practices (30 hours)
Brokerage (20 hours)
Finance (30 hours)
Property Management (10 hours)
Each module is further divided into smaller sections called "segments." Throughout the segments there are activities for you to complete, including audio/visual presentations, reading assignments, and simple learning assessments. At the end of each module, you are presented with a final learning assessment. These seven module final learning assessments are required by the Oregon Real Estate Agency in order to demonstrate competency in the subject matter of the modules. For the most part, these assessments are made from multiple choice questions. Once you pass a module final assessment with a minimum score of 75%, you are granted access to the next module.
While the course and our delivery method will adequately prepare you for your module final learning assessments, your OnlineEd Certified Designated Course Instructor is also available to help you prepare or review your results.
The course is available in English-only.

Course Instructor and Applicant Support
Upon enrollment, you will be attached to an OnlineEd Designated Certified Course Instructor. Each OnlineEd Certified Course Instructor is an Oregon resident, licensed as Oregon Higher Education Coordinating Commission vocational instructor, approved as an instructor by the Oregon Real Estate Agency, an Oregon licensed real estate principal broker, has been awarded the CDEi(TM) (Certified Distance Education Instructor) by the International Certified Distance Education Certification Center; and was rigorously vetted, approved, and trained by OnlineEd to meet our requirements for online course instruction and receive our designation of Certified Course Instructor.

Your instructor will also automatically review course assessments to make sure you understand course concepts. Our course is delivered as adult education, so you can use your instructor as little or as much as you like.
OnlineEd's Chief Certified Course Instructor is Marilee Mascarenhas, an Oregon Principal Real Estate Broker. Ms. Mascarenhas is also our Oregon real estate license subject matter expert and assists with ongoing development and instruction of the OnlineEd course materials.
Technical support questions should be directed to OnlineEd, Inc. and not the instructor. Students are not required to use this service. OnlineEd reserves the right refuse instructor support to students that abuse this service.
You can complete your course at your own pace, but must finish it within the 240 calendar day enrollment period. If you do not finish within the enrollment period, your course will expire and no longer be accessible to you.
If your course expires, you may extend it for one-time only. Extensions are for 120 days from the date of the end of the original enrollment period (not from the date the extension is requested) and must be accompanied by the applicable extension fee. If you withdraw from the course or request a refund, and then want to continue the course, you must enroll in the course again, at the current catalog price, and start over from the beginning. Should you have a medical emergency, death in the family, or other extenuating circumstance that prevents you from completing your course during its enrollment period, you may petition the School Director for a one-time Extenuating Circumstance Extension Fee Waiver. Extenuating Circumstance Extension Fee Waivers are not automatic, are at the option of the School Director, and should be directed to the School Director's Office at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
With exception of instructor support offered by telephone and email, the course, its materials, and delivery system are entirely over the Internet. In order to be able to access and complete the course, you will need access to the Internet and an Internet-ready computer system, including a CPU, monitor, keyboard, and mouse. Our OnlineEd delivery method works with all modern web browsers and operating systems.
The course may be read online, be printed to your printer, or saved to disc. Most chapters are also available in MP3 audio format. If you would like a printed soft-bound book copy of the course for study or reference, select a course package that includes a book or purchase one at catalog price, plus shipping. Regardless of your study method, the course must be completed online.
