Education FAQs


Do I need to pre-register for a class?  As a courtesy to our instructors and to ensure we have enough seats, materials and/or food ready for the class, pre-registration is recommended. We allow walk-in registration for most classes, please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the class start time to allow for registration. 

How do I register for a class? Visit our Education Calendar to register online. Choose the class from the calendar and follow the prompts for online registration.

How do I cancel a class I have registered for? contact Jamie via jamie@fcbr.org or 970-223-2900 to cancel. We do ask that you contact us at least a day in advance to cancel registration for a class. We do not offer refunds at this time. You might be able to carry the credit and put it towards another class that we have. 

How do I get a replacement certificate for a class I took at FCBR? FCBR members can email jamiefcbr.org with the class date and name of the class and a replacement will be e-mailed to you. We encourage you to take all your classes here at FCBR and your records are always here!

Why doesn’t FCBR have all the Education classes that I have taken? FCBR can only track classes held here at FCBR or offsite FCBR sponsored classes. Any course taken outside of FCBR through another real estate school, university or private entity will not be on file at FCBR.

When do I need to take my Ethics Update class? All REALTORS® must take an Ethics Update course once during the pre-designated two year cycle in order to maintain REALTOR® membership. This requirement is a requirement of N.A.R. & completely distinct and separate from the Colorado Real Estate Commission Update requirement. The CE credits obtained during the Ethics Update course will apply toward the elective credits required to renew your license. 

How many credits do I need to renew my real estate license? Colorado’s Department of Regulatory Agencies – Division of Real Estate or DORA handles all real estate license renewal issues and questions. Please visit DORA’s website or contact them directly at 303-894-7855. 

Which class is the mandatory one? The 4-Hour Annual Commission Update Course is required by Colorado’s Division of Real Estate for license renewal. At FCBR it is referred to as the “CREC Update”. Taking a course for a second time in the same license cycle will not count for credit of any kind. A licensee may still choose to take the course as many times as they would like, but will only receive 4 hours of credit total. 

What does CREC stand for? Colorado Real Estate Commission which is another name for DORA – Department of Regulatory Agencies – Division of Real Estate.
