Course Description

California real estate law requires responsible brokers to supervise the activities of the salespersons associated with the broker's license. As of January 1, 2016, all California real estate brokers who are renewing their broker license must complete a three-hour course on the management of real estate offices and the supervision of real estate licensed activities. The required course is to re-enforce the broker's supervisory role as well as remind the broker of the extra duties that come with the responsibility. 

This course will cover three important topics that brokers must be aware of:

  1. their managerial position over the salespersons in their office,
  2. fair housing laws that brokers must ensure their salespersons are in compliance with, and
  3. the importance of properly maintaining funds that belong to others (i.e., trust funds).

Real estate salespersons who are renewing their license for the second or subsequent time must also take a course in Management and Supervision. This can be completed by taking an Eight Hour Survey course that contains the required category or by taking six separate 3-hour courses in each of the required categories (Ethics, Agency, Trust Funds, Fair Housing, Risk Management, and Management and Supervision).


This is a correspondence course provided via the Internet. The course material is made available as an electronic download after registration. After studying the material, students will need to complete an online quiz for each chapter and pass an online final exam at the end of the course.

No other method of taking or completing this course is allowed.

Course Materials

This course is composed of 3 hours of reading material. The course is divided into three segments with online review quizzes at the end of each segment. The course is delivered in a downloadable PDF format and may be read on any compatible computer, tablet, or mobile device. All testing must be taken online.

A final exam is required at the end of the course. The final examination consists of 15 multiple choice questions. A minimum exam score of 70% is required before being issued course completion credit. The final examination is not downloadable or printable.

The final exam has a time limit of one minute per question served, for a total of 15 minutes available for the final exam as required by current California Department of Real Estate regulations.

DRE requirements allow for ONE re-take of a failed final exam. A second failure will result in a failing score for the entire course, and the course must be purchased again for credit.
