IDAHO REAL ESTATE LICENSE LAW
54-2026. Certification of course providers. (1) Degree-granting institutions. Degree-granting, accredited colleges and universities in any state or jurisdiction shall be deemed to be approved course providers in Idaho. However, course content must still be approved for the real estate education course to receive credit toward prelicense or continuing education licensing requirements in Idaho.
(2) Other course providers. All other course providers desiring to offer real estate courses for credit toward Idaho prelicense or continuing education requirements must first meet the following qualifications and receive certification. Each applicant seeking certification as a course provider shall comply with the following:
(a) File an application for certification in the form and manner required by the commission, along with proper fees, at least two (2) months prior to contemplated date of opening or first accredited course offering;
(b) Designate a "director" or "individual in charge," who shall be responsible for the course provider’s operation and its real estate courses, and with whom the commission may communicate. Unless this requirement is waived upon special review of the commission in the manner stated below, the individual in charge shall:
(i) Not have had a real estate or other professional or occupational license suspended or revoked for disciplinary reasons or have been refused a renewal of a license issued by the state of Idaho or any other state or jurisdiction;
(ii) Not have been convicted, issued any fine, placed on probation, received a withheld judgment, or completed any sentence of confinement for or on account of any felony or a misdemeanor involving fraud, misrepresentation, or dishonest or dishonorable dealing in a court of proper jurisdiction; and
(iii) Have attended a commission-approved provider training within the two (2) years immediately preceding the designation.
The failure of the provider to have in place a designated individual meeting the qualifications required by this subsection shall be grounds for the commission to withdraw or cancel the provider’s certificate as provided in section 54-2025(3), Idaho Code;
(c) File a properly executed "irrevocable consent to service of process" in the manner and form prescribed by the commission and in substantial accordance with section 54-2012(1)(k), Idaho Code. The commission, in its discretion, may make such additional investigation and inquiry relative to the applicant for provider certification as it deems advisable and, if good cause exists, may deny or accept the application for certification.
