No, the CE Marketplace is not mandatory. By way of background, as of January 1, 2015, the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) stopped accepting reports from continuing education providers when individual licensees completed courses. Instead, licensees are being asked to retain their own certificates of completion, and then produce them to LARA if (and only if) they receive an audit letter. As part of this change of process, LARA entered into an arrangement with the Michigan Association of Realtors (MAR) whereby the MAR offers all Michigan real estate licensees the opportunity to store those certificates of completion on the CE Marketplace by loading them manually to their storage portal. This is completely optional and is meant only as a service to help licensees, if they so desire.
Likewise, as of January 1, 2015, LARA no longer approves real estate continuing education providers or courses. In fact, no one (not even any local or state association like MAR) can approve courses on behalf of the State of Michigan.
Perhaps you recently received an email from LARA or from MAR regarding this optional CE Marketplace. It sounds confusing, but 123 ConEd LLC students need not worry! 123 ConEd LLC not only guarantees that all of its courses will satisfy all real estate continuing education requirements and stand up to any state audit, but all certificates of completion are automatically stored in your account on our website.
