All Colorado real estate brokers must be licensed through the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA). Brokers belonging to the National Association of REALTORS® must maintain higher standards in order to claim the REALTOR® title. REALTORS® are required by NAR to participate in ethics training that aligns with the REALTOR® Code of Ethics.
Colorado REALTORS® must complete a minimum or 24 hours of DORA approved continuing education (CE) during each three-year license cycle, including an annual update course written by DORA. To assist our members in attaining this requirement, ROCC's Professional Development Work Group garners a variety of course ideas from membership, coordinates trainings with skilled instructors, and ensures courses are held in a variety of locations and formats. Course topics vary and have included:
- Agency Relationships
- Comparative Market Analysis (CMAs)
- Contract Updates/Changes
- Lending Products
- Manufactured Homes
- Negotiating Techniques
- New Member Orientation
- Pricing in a Shifting Market
- Well and Septic Systems
To help members further succeed, the Professional Development Work Group also explores and develops non-credit courses and panel discussions to fit the needs of our membership. Some courses are open to the general public to attend to educate property owners about relevant topics such as living harmoniously in/near operating ranches.
Due to the pandemic, our members have pivoted to on-line learning options. Many are working toward nationally recognized designations and certifications requiring 16-80 hours of additional credit hours.
Upcoming courses are posted in the "Calendar" on the homepage.
