PROPOSED
 
2900 Real Estate Commission
 
PUBLIC NOTICE
 
Pursuant to 24 Del.C. §2906(a)(1), the Delaware Real Estate Commission has proposed revisions to its rules and regulations.
A public hearing will be held on May 10, 2012 at 9:15 a.m. in the second floor conference room A of the Cannon Building, 861 Silver Lake Boulevard, Dover, Delaware, where members of the public can offer comments. Anyone wishing to receive a copy of the proposed rules and regulations may obtain a copy from the Delaware Real Estate Commission, 861 Silver Lake Boulevard, Dover, Delaware 19904. Persons wishing to submit written comments may forward these to the Commission at the above address. The final date to receive written comments will be at the public hearing.
The Commission has proposed revisions to Rule 13.0, pertaining to continuing education requirements. Specifically, pursuant to the revisions, 21 hours of continuing education will be required for each licensure renewal period. Currently, the Commission requires 15 hours. The revised rules state that the required hours must be taken in specified subject matters, or modules. In addition, new licensees, other than licensees already licensed in another state, will be required to take 12 hours of continuing education relevant to the skills required for new practitioners. Those 12 hours will be applied to the required 21 hours and pro-rated accordingly. These new continuing education requirements will serve to enhance the skills and competence of licensees and in this way protect the interests of the public.
Finally, the Commission proposes revisions to certain rules addressing administrative issues, such as the availability of the licensure application on-line.
The Commission will consider promulgating the proposed rules and regulations at its regularly scheduled meeting following the public hearing.

1.3.4 The employment of a Designated On-Site Supervisor, sales manager, administrative manager, trainer, or other similar administrator shall not relieve the Broker of the responsibilities contained and defined in these Rules and Regulations.

Nothing contained herein shall require the Commission to issue a new license upon completion of the above mentioned requirements, as the Commission retains the right to deny any such application. Where a person's license has been permanently revoked by the Commission, the person is not eligible for issuance of a new license at any time.
