24 DE Admin. Code 2925
After due notice in the Delaware Register of Regulations and two Delaware newspapers, a public hearing was held on April 10, 2014 at a scheduled meeting of the Delaware Real Estate Commission (“the Commission”) to receive comments regarding proposed amendments to the Commission’s Education Guidelines (“Guidelines”). The Commission has proposed revisions to Rule 7.0 to specify that, where a student requests approval for a continuing education course, an instructor resume is not required for a Commission or ARELLO approved instructor. Rule 7.0 is further amended to state that Modules 1 – 6 automatically qualify for Module 7 credit. Rule 8.4 is revised to state that the course provider shall determine whether electronic devices may be used during the course.
The proposed changes to the Guidelines were published in the Register of Regulations, Volume 17, Issue 7, on January 1, 2014. Notice of the rescheduled hearing was published in the Register of Regulations, Volume 17, Issue 9, on March 1, 2014. Notice of the April 10, 2014 hearing was published in the News Journal (Exhibit 1) and the Delaware State News. Exhibit 2. Pursuant to 29 Del.C. §10118(a), the date to receive final written comments was April 25, 2014, 15 days following the public hearing. The Commission deliberated on the proposed revisions at its regularly scheduled meeting on May 8, 2014.
Commission Exhibit 1: News Journal Affidavit of Publication.
Commission Exhibit 2: Delaware State News Affidavit of Publication.
Pursuant to 24 Del.C. §2906(a)(1), the Commission has the statutory authority to promulgate rules and regulations. The proposed revisions will facilitate licensee compliance with the Commission’s continuing education standards. The Commission concludes that adoption of the Guidelines as amended advances professional standards and is in the best interest of the public.
The text of the revised Guidelines remains as published in the Delaware Register of Regulations, Volume 17, Issue 7, on January 1, 2014.
SO ORDERED this 8th day of May, 2014.
3.3.1 With the expiration of the terms of the members of the Committee in office as of the effective date of this Rule, each appointment shall be for three (3) full years. Each appointed committee member may succeed himself or herself for one (1) additional term. Committee members in office as of April 11, 2013, may serve an additional three (3) year term after completion of their current terms. No person who has been appointed to the Committee shall again be appointed to the Committee until an interim period of at least one (1) year has passed since such person last served.
3.3.2 As of the effective date of this Rule, a majority of the members holding appointed office at any given time members shall constitute a quorum; and no recommendation shall be effective without the affirmative vote of a majority of the quorum.
