24 DE Admin. Code 2925
After due notice in the Delaware Register of Regulations and two Delaware newspapers, a public hearing was held on June 13, 2013 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 proposed revisions to Rule 3.0, pertaining to the composition of the Education Committee. These revisions will facilitate the appointment and retention of Education Committee members and ensure that their meetings have a quorum. In addition, Rule 6.7 is added to permit licensees to obtain continuing education credit for completion of a broker’s licensing course.
The proposed changes to the Guidelines were published in the Register of Regulations, Volume 16, Issue 11, on May 1, 2013. Notice of the June 13, 2013 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 June 28, 2013, 15 days following the public hearing. The Commission deliberated on the proposed revisions at its regularly scheduled meeting on July 11, 2013.
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 the appointment and retention of Education Committee members and ensure that their meetings have a quorum. In this way, the Education Committee will be able to continue in the important work they perform in ensuring the adequacy of both pre-licensing education and continuing education. Rule 6.7 will permit licensees to obtain continuing education credit for completion of a broker’s licensing course which will ensure licensee competence while preventing the undue burden of duplicative education. 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 16, Issue 11, on May 1, 2013.
SO ORDERED this 11th day of July, 2013.
