Online Class Fee Change

Dear Homebuyer Education Instructors,

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation in-person classes are not allowed until further notice. We continue to have the following alternative options for our in-person classes:

1) Online Class
The fee for our approved online class had been temporarily reduced to $25 from $50. Due to the number of virtual classes now available around the state, effective August 1st, the fee will return to $50 per person.

2) Virtual Classroom
We continue to temporarily allow instructors to use Zoom (or another virtual classroom platform) to provide classes virtually.

Please note: Prior approval is required. Before you use a virtual classroom the first time for your classes, email Bill Conner and explain in writing:

1) How you will gather contact and demographic information for each attendee to be forwarded to us after class;
2) How you will ensure that each attendee is present for the full 5 hours;
3) How you will ensure that each attendee receives their certificate.

Use of a virtual classroom is only effective March 17 through September 30, 2020, but is subject to change.

Thank you for your patience during this challenging time and as always, thank you for the time you spend teaching the public to be better informed homebuyers and homeowners!

If you have additional questions? Contact Corinna Obar.
