Top Six CE Marketplace Course Submission Tips and Tricks

1/14/2019

For many School Administrators, course submission can be time consuming. We realize that your time is valuable. So we want to help you work more efficiently and improve your CE Marketplace productivity.

Whether you are an experienced CE Marketplace user or newly registered, these tips will be a helpful reference.

Top Six CE Marketplace Tips and Tricks:

1. Course Title

Please make sure that your course title reflects the topics that will be covered and is not misleading. Titles are randomized on CE Marketplace, so using numbers or ABC will not aid in the marketing of your course on the class calendar.

2. Timed Outline

Each course that is submitted needs a detailed outline that reflects content equaling 50 minutes of learning time per credit hour*. Please identify clear learning objectives that specify what the class attendee will be able to accomplish as a result of the course. 

(*50 minutes = 1 credit, 100 minutes = 2 credits)

3. Legal Content

Legal courses must reference topics that cover statues, rules, and court cases specific to the practice of real estate.

4. Course Marketing

Courses cannot be marketed as meeting Michigan continuing education licensing requirements until they are CE Marketplace certified. All CE Marketplace certified courses must display the number of elective or legal hours on marketing material.

All CE Marketplace certified courses must display the CE Marketplace Certified Logo on marketing materials in a place that is easily identifiable to licensees. You’ll find a copy of the CE Marketplace Certified Logo attached above.

5. CE Marketplace Certified

Certified courses can be subject to an audit by a CE Marketplace staff member to assess accurate record keeping and the delivery of course content.

6. Scheduling a Class

Once the course has been CE Marketplace certified you will want to schedule your class in advance. When you host a class it can be marked as a public or private event. If marked public it will appear on the CE Marketplace calendar, which is visible to all licensees and could result in additional class attendees.
