Regulatory Notes:

Students cannot receive credit for completing more than 8 hours in a course per day. Following this restriction, students are not allowed to complete a course in less than 8 days, therefore, the first attempt at the course final examination is not accessible until at least the 8th day after starting the course (provided the student has completed all units and unit quizzes).

Obtaining Certificate of Course Completion: Upon completion of the course, Colibri Real Estate will provide you an electronic certificate of completion in your account dashboard. You will need to submit your certificate of completion with your salesperson application. Course completion dates are recorded using Central Standard Time, therefore that will be the time reflected on your certificate.

Roster: Rosters for post-license course completions are sent weekly on Wednesdays. We send copies of completion certificates issued from the previous Wednesday through Tuesday for post-license course completions only.
Roster Sent: Every 7 days
