Online real estate courses in Kentucky are completion-based rather than time-based, so if you are taking a 96 hour course and you finish in 90 hours, your certificate still shows 96 hours. Likewise, if it takes you 100 hours to complete a 96 hour course, your certificate still shows 96 hours.
We are required to track what you do and how much time you’ve spent in a course, but we’ve found showing that information tends to distract students and time becomes the focus over understanding the concepts.
Everyone learns at a different pace & each topic at a different pace. For instance, if you are currently a loan officer, you’ll complete the financing section of the course much quicker than a student who has never had experiences with loan applications.
If there’s an issue with time in the course, we’ll let any student know, but as a general rule, you should take the amount of time you need to understand the material. If that’s quickly the first time you see/hear something that’s great. If understanding requires you to review material again, that’s what you should do, because the real estate exam will focus on your comprehension of the subject matter, and it requires an in depth knowledge of the material.
