STRADER, CPA BECKLEY EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR To: Pre-license and Continuing Education Providers From: Nedka Dineva, PhD, Education Director Date: May 3, 2010 Re: Distance Education Certification Requirement At its meeting on April 29, 2010, the Real Estate Commission voted to require ARELLO certification of all pre-license and continuing education courses offered through distance education formats. The certification is based on a set of strict standards whose enforcement will positively influence the development of distance education courses offered to real estate professionals in West Virginia. The requirement goes into effect on July 1, 2010 and all distance education courses offered after that must be ARELLO certified, in order to be approved by the Commission. The purpose of this certification is to make sure that the education providers have the knowledge, tools and procedures in place to do a quality job in the design and delivery of the courses they offer, and to offer support services to their students. This will help to offer enhanced value to real estate licensees when they purchase a distance education product approved by the Commission. All certified courses will be required to have a qualified and certified instructor available to answer student’s questions about the content within a reasonable period of time. Education providers will also be required to provide opportunities for interaction, support, administrative communications, and assessment and evaluation feedback. To facilitate the transition and to provide the knowledge necessary to comply with this new requirement, the Commission will offer a special workshop for providers and instructors of distance education courses. The workshop will be held at Flatwoods, Days Inn Conference Center, on June 24th. Lodging and meals will be the responsibility of each attendee. Room reservations may be made by calling 1-866-700-7284 no later than June 13, 2010. There will be no registration fee for the workshop. For more information and registration go to www.wvrec.org.
