Frequently Asked Questions

I just attended an office meeting or lunch presentation and signed up – when/how do I get a confirmation, invoice, or materials offered?

NO… we keep all records electronically. In essence, you are the ticket- your face & BRE number is your ticket...FOR LIFE.

I have questions about the SEMINAR… Do you need to be there all 2.5 days

We have a combination of Live courses and online options for your convenience.  For the online courses, live attendance at the seminar is not technically necessary but you will not want to miss them.  Passing the tests increases DRAMATICALLY when you attend all three days of the seminar.  For the live courses attendance IS mandatory to qualify to take the test.

Do you have room blocks for us?

When we are at a convention center type setting (in other words NOT at a hotel) we DO NOT… check or google local hotel and make your own selection. When we are at a hotel – yes we have a limited number of rooms blocked. PLEASE NOTE – hotel industry policy is that they release any un-reserved rooms 3 weeks prior to the event.

Where can I find the pre-study materials needed for the seminar?

As a member, once you have RSVP'd for the seminar you are wanting to attend, you will receive a confirmation that you are registered.  Then, one week prior to the seminar you will receive an email from our CalBRE certified continuing education provider with log in and password information.  This email will have all the information you need as well as access to the pre-study materials.

How many credits? How do I get my Certificate of Completion?

You will get your Continuing Education certificates for up to 45 credit hours after you have completed the testing process with the REFERRAL to the certified CalBRE Continuing Education provider.  You are able to go online immediately after a seminar to renew your license as long as you are inside your 90 day window of your license expiration date at: www.dre.ca.gov. NOTE: You can EARN your credits anytime in the 4 years between expiration dates… you do not need to wait until the last minute to earn them.

Does it meet the requirements for a BROKER or SALESPERSON license renewal?

YES … BOTH – does not matter if you have a Brokers or Salesperson License.

What is Day 2.5?

Day 2.5 is optional as far as attending live. This day is where we will offer additional teaching, information that many agents find the most challenging.  We cover principles and information on day 2.5 that can help you not only be a better real estate agent but also help you do better with many of the test that appear on many continuing education tests.  This optional day we teach principles of Agency, Fair Housing, Trust Fund Handling, Ethics and Risk Management. Also on day 2.5 we rotate in some of the very popular courses that COMPASS teaches that do not appear in the main two days of the seminar.  These courses include the very popular
  • Body Language for Real Estate
  • The Corporate Image
  • Rest & Refection
  • Peak Performance Real Estate
  • Negotiation
  • Getting The Job: Interviewing To Win
  • Many others...

What if I did test, I did pass and DID NOT save my certificate like I was told to do?

There is a $19.95 Certificate Replacement costs.  Simply CLICK HERE:  CERTIFICATE REPLACEMENT

Can I take my entire testing in one day… why 3 days (well 2.5 days)?

NO... BRE has a 15/24 rule that does not allow testing on more than 15 credits in a 24 hour period.

How do I renew with the BRE? Do I mail my certificate into the BRE? Or do you do that for me?

NO, NO and NO! Do not mail it in. At the Seminar and in your Workbook you were instructed to and shown how to go online to complete your license renewal process – that can be done sometime within a 90 day window before your license expires. And NO we do not do it for you!

Do we pay for your BRE renewal fee?

NO! THE CAREER COMPASS LIFETIME TICKET is as good as it gets, however it does NOT and cannot cover your BRE renewal fee. Unfortunately there is no way we could stay in business if we did. It does however cover your continuing education credits...for life.

Are the tickets refundable?

Good question – the answer is NO. However, your ticket/membership is fully transferrable and never expires.

What if I’m not getting any Emails (or if I have changed my Email address since I signed up)?

Email our office at support@thecareercompass.com and give us your NEW email. We will be happy to update the system.

Where can I get the company LOGO to use?
