Course Syllabus:

3.0 Core Hours

Every two years, the Washington State Department of Licensing (DOL) and Washington State Real Estate Commission (Commission) release a set Current Issues (CORE) curricula specifically designed to provide a mandated three-hour legislative, legal, and business practices update for real estate professionals.

For the 2018/19 CORE curricula, DOL and the Commission utilized the following data points and resources to guide eventual content determinations:

  • An alignment review of RCW, WAC and other legislative mandates
  • An assessment of real estate compliance data
  • An identification of new key issues/trends and out-of-date content/topics based on stakeholder input via survey process conducted April-May, 2017

This 2018/19 edition of the Current Issues in Washington Residential Real Estate Course Curriculum was adopted by the Commission on September 28, 2017, to be implemented January 1, 2018.
