  • explain how the Code is amended.
  • understand the preamble and how it effects the business.
  • explain how cooperation impacts consumers.
  • interpret the concepts of Article I.
  • have a greater understanding of the concepts of Article 4 and the importance of disclosure.

Each module will begin with an informational video lecture from the course instructor, Vern Jarboe, followed by interactive activities to expand upon the module's subject. At the end of each module is a short quiz to help remember the important points you should now be better familiar with.

After completing all of the modules, a 30-question final exam will be given. The final exam is not timed and can be attempted as many times as needed to earn the minimum 75% passing score. A course completion certificate for Missouri real estate continuing education credit will be issued after passing the final exam and completing a course feedback survey.
