The best deal you have ever seen can fall apart right before your eyes if you have not identified and addressed the risks that can threaten your deal or the asset – That is why Risk Management Matters.

Get three hours of Risk Management CE and valuable information on how to protect your transactions and the real property that you own or are marketing or managing.

We will review how to make an enforceable deal and the pitfalls to avoid.  We will discuss designing your own method for identifying, assessing, eliminating or minimizing the risks associated with your professional activities.  We will also work through a number of scenarios as a group and investigate and discuss the many risks threatening your success on a deal by deal or building by building basis.

You can refer to Rule 790-X-1-.11 of Alabama License Law for the specific wording of these requirements. All licensees must have both Level 1 and Level 2 of Risk Management in their CE records in order to activate a license for the first time or earn credit to renew a license in 2014.

The Risk Management for the Commercial Practitioner (#805) course will not satisfy the Risk Management requirement for everyone. Look at the following examples to see how this course will be applied toward your CE requirement for license renewal:

1.      Qualifying Brokers and Associate Brokers who take Risk Management for the Commercial Practitioner will use it as an elective course because they are required to take both Risk Management: Avoiding Violations (Level 1)and Risk Management for Brokers (Level 2) to satisfy their CE requirement. The Risk Management for the Commercial Practitioner (#805) course would count as 3 hours of elective CE for them.

2.      Salespersons who take Risk Management for the Commercial Practitioner can satisfy the Level 2 Risk Management requirement but will also have to take Risk Management: Avoiding Violations (Level 1)The Risk Management for the Commercial Practitioner (#805) course will satisfy Level 2 of the Risk Management requirement.
