The CE Shop Questions

I’ve finished a course from The CE Shop. Where is my certificate?+

Once you have finished a course at The CE Shop, your CE certificate will be uploaded instantly to your account for downloading and printing. 

What’s my login information?+

We don’t have access to that information. Contact The CE Shop for help.

Why doesn't NAR show that I took the Code of Ethics?+

Once you have completed "Cracking the Code of Ethics" through The CE Shop, you will need to submit the CE certificate to your Local Association/Board for credit with NAR. 

Webinar Questions

What does $19/location mean?+

Our webinars are $19 per location, rather than computer login. When you register for a webinar location, you can host as many agents as you’d like to view the webinar. It’s a great deal for broker owners to offer CE to their agents!

When do I get my CE certificate?+

Once you have submitted the course sign-in sheet, CE certificates will be available via your Member Profile within a week.

Why haven’t I received my login information for the webinar?+

The day before the webinar, we will send out an email with login instructions, handouts, and a sign-in sheet. Please fill out the provided sign-in sheet and then return it to OAR. We will then process it and send out CE certificates within the week.

I pay dues. Why do I have to pay for the webinar?+

We work hard to provide timely and relevant information from great instructors for our webinars. As such, we feel our webinars are a very good deal - $19 for quality education and CE for as many agents you would like to host in one location. The registration fee helps us host these webinars, covering technology and instructor fees.

But you don't have to pay the $19 for the information! We post all of our recorded on your YouTube Channel within a week of the actual webinar. You are welcome to listen to any of these webinars to receive this information. The recorded webinars don't count for CE credit, but are a great way to receive the information and stay abreast of current issues.

Webinar Library

I missed a webinar. Can I still get credit if I watch it on your YouTube Channel?+

Unfortunately, there is no way to offer CE unless you attend the live webinar. You can always access the information after the webinar is over on our YouTube channel. But unless you are there for the full webinar at the time specified we can't offer CE. 

GRI Questions

Are there any updates or news regarding the GRI designation?+

Unfortunately, no firm news yet. We are working on restructuring our program to possibly offer courses in 2014. As we have more information, we will be keeping our members updated via email and the website. We apologize we don't have better news yet.

I started the GRI but haven’t been able to finish. When will more courses be offered?+

We are doing our best to make sure the people currently in the “GRI pipeline” aren't stuck there. We are currently assessing the feasibility of holding 200 and 300 level courses to ensure the REALTORS® that started the designation will be able to finish it. Stay tuned for information regarding 2014 courses.
