Question concerning CE in Florida

Not open for further replies.

Hi everyone,

I’m hoping that Pam, Frank, Wally, Judy, or any of the other Florida appraisers might be able to answer this question for me. I’ve read through Florida Real Estate Appraisal Board Chapter 61J1 and was not able to decisively answer this question.

I checked DBPR online for the status of my Registered Assistant application. It shows that it has been approved. Being that I do not yet have a supervisor the license status is “Current/Inactive”. I understand that once I find a supervisor I only need to fill out a change of status to become active. My question is this; I have signed up for several CE courses in February. Will I receive credit for these courses with a status of Current/Inactive?

Thanks in advance for the help.

You dont need CE yet. Wait untill 2004 then you may want to take AB2 and AB2B towards getting certified then you will only need the 7hrs USPAP of the CE classes.

I'm going to come at this question from a different direction.

Take any and all classes you can in order to learn. It is very likely that the classes you take prior to having an active license will also count toward your necessary CE.

The number of CE credits I have is not an issue at all since I have been and will continue to take courses that I want to take to learn. Some are credited for CE and some are not. This past cycle I think I must have had at least twice the necessary CE hours.

So Michelle, take what you want in order to learn; the necessary CE hours will usually take care of themselves. Do keep track of what you've taken and if it does count. I believe all accredited CE courses must now file that you've taken the course and passed with the state so the state will know anyway.
