Checklist for making the class a success...

Washington REALTORS® offer co-sponsorship opportunities for Local REALTOR® Associations, REALTOR® chapters, and private member offices to host a class. This service helps to provide a direct avenue of contact and benefit between you and your members. In order to co-sponsor a successful class the following tasks must be completed before, during and after the class.


  • Choose your Class
  • Identify a few date options to host the class
  • Plan your Budget
    • Instructor fee & expenses
    • $10 per member certificate payable to Washington REALTORS®
    • Class royalty fee (if a Designation class)
    • Printed materials
    • Venue rental and refreshments
    • Marketing expenses
    • NOTE:  We recommend you estimate the number of students necessary to cover class costs and charge the class price accordingly.  For example:
 2 classes (3.5 clock hour & 4.0 clock hour) = 7.5 CE

 Estmated instructor fee & expenses
 Estimated certificate fee (2 certificates per student)
 Royalty fee (if a designation class)
 Print materials
 Venue rental & refreshments
 Marketing expenses (e.g. flyers)
 Price per student (25 students)

  • Contact the Instructor to negotiate your class choice(s), available dates, instructor fee & expenses.
  • NOTE: Washington REALTORS® pays instructors directly and will invoice you after completion of class to included items a, b, & c as previously listed if applicable.
    • Complete the online contract to reflect the following information:
    • Class title(s) and clock hours
    • Class date and start time(s)
    • Address of the class location
    • Class cost to students
    • Negotiated instructor fee & expenses
    • Contact information (e.g. cell phone)
    • Once the form is completed e-sign the contract and click SUBMIT
  • If the class must be cancelled or rescheduled, please notify Washington REALTORS® and the instructor with as much advance notice as possible.  This will allow the instructor enough time to cancel hotel and plane reservations if necessary.
  • Prior to the class, the Education Department will email a PDF file of the materials. The co-host is responsible for printing and distributing materials to students (e.g. books, worksheets, test, etc.).
  • Contact the instructor to ensure she/he has directions and correct class information


  • Sign-in sheets must be signed as students check in for the start of class and after returning from lunch. Please have the class monitor note on the sign-in sheet if students are late or leave class early.
  • Distribute class materials to students


  • Collect sign-in sheets, student evaluations, and a typed roster of all students in attendance and send to Washingtion REALTORS,  If emailing the materials please add the instructor as a "cc" to the email.
  • NOTE: Washingtion REALTORS® charges $10 per certificate issued.
  • Washingtion REALTORS emails course completion certificates to students approximately 1-2 weeks after we've received materials.
  • NOTE: On occasion, students may comment they have not received their certificate.  Please direct them to contact Washington REALTORS®,


  • Washington REALTORS® encourages the use of class monitors for classes with more than 25-30 students.  Monitors typically assist instructors and students to help ensure a successful class.  Some of the duties monitors may perform include:
    • Registering & checking in students
    • Handing out class materials>
    • Collecting student signatures
    • Reporting on student attendance*
    • Introducing the instructor
    • Helping the instructor "keep time"
    • Introducing class sponsors
    • Collecting class evaluations after class
    • Mailing/emailing sign-in sheets, registration sheets & evaluations to Washington REALTORS®


All classes will start and end on time.  Students should be punctual and seated in the classroom prior to the time the session is to start.  Attendance at all sessions is mandatory in order for the student to receive credit for the course.  Attendance will be monitored and tardiness is unacceptable.  Students who persistently and significantly disrupt the class may be dismissed, at the discretion of the instructor, without receiving clock hours.  Students must be in the class room for the entire course offering in order to fulfill clock hour requirements as per RCW 18.85.165 No refund or transfers will be made.


Students are encouraged to fill out a course evaluation form at the end of each class.


All cellular phones and other wireless equipment should be turned to silent or vibrate before entering the classroom.  The noise is not only distracting to the instructor but to other students.


All students will receive completion certificates within two weeks from the last day of class.  Those students who need special processing should contact WR Education at  360-943-3100 or 800-562-6024.  If a student does not receive their certificate within the two-week period, they should contact WR Education.
