Private providers of pre-license statutory real estate courses must obtain course approval from the Department of Real Estate (DRE). As part of the approval process, the DRE reviews the course material only and does not qualify the school or course provider. In addition, there is no regulatory oversight of private pre-license course providers who offer courses or programs costing $2500 or less. For courses or program over $2500, qualification by the Bureau of Postsecondary Education is required in addition to the DRE course approval. As a result, if a course provider offering a course costing $2500 or less fails to deliver the educational course / program as represented, a students monetary remedy is to seek redress in Small Claims Court. Students are cautioned to fully understand the education course / program offered by the provider before enrolling or regis- tering. A list of pre-license statutory courses approved by the DRE can be found on the DRE website at http://www.dre.ca.gov under DRE records.
