Terms

Thornton’s Real Estate Academy and courses at GreatWayToLearn.com are approved by the Kentucky Real Estate Commission and the Kentucky Commission on Proprietary Education. Upon completion of this class, students will be given a certificate for the appropriate clock hours of real estate instruction.

I have been provided and reviewed the personal qualifications of obtaining a real estate license as provided by the Kentucky Real Estate Commission (KREC) and I certify I meet these requirements.

All Kentucky Real Estate License Applicants Must:

  • Be 18 years of age;
  • Have attained a high school diploma or GED;
    (see also: Foreign Transcripts​)
  • Completed all real estate pre-license courses prior to taking the real estate examination;
  • Complete FBI criminal background check; and
  • Must apply within sixty (60) days of passing their exam.

Applicants for the Sales Associate License must also:

  • Have completed either six (6) credit hours in real estate courses from an accredited college or ninety-six (96) classroom hours in real estate classes from an approved proprietary school; and
  • Take and pass the Kentucky Sales Associate exam.

Applicants for a Broker’s License must also have:

  • Experience:  Two (2) years of experience working at least twenty (20) hours a week as a licensee.  The experience verification affidavit is only provided as a part of the application by the testing service once the exam has been passed; and
  • Education: Twenty-one (21) credit hours with twelve (12) in real estate from an accredited college with three (3) credit hours in Brokerage Management or three hundred thirty-six (336) classroom hours in real estate from an approved proprietary school with forty-eight (48) in Brokerage Management.

I understand that part of the qualifications for obtaining a real estate license will be to contact the FBI and request a background check. If previously convicted of a felony or certain misdemeanors, it is my understanding I should contact the (KREC) before proceeding with any class.

The tuition fee is due upon registration. (Check or Charge Cards Accepted) Refund Policy: 100% refund is registration is canceled prior to the first access of course material in addition to 14 Day Money Back Guarantee.

In the event I drop out of this class, for a period of 6 months, I may pick up coursework during another class at no additional cost.

In the event I drop out of this class after 1 year, I may re-register and start over (within the following two years) at a discounted rate of 50% of then current tuition.

This class has been approved by the (KREC) as meeting their education requirements. I acknowledge my personal responsibility to complete the required classes while maintaining a passing score of at least 75%.
