HOW DO I PURCHASE THE PROGRAM?
Students can purchase Part A and Part B of the course separately or together in a package. Purchasing separately essentially allows students to pay in two installments. Even though there is an option for installments, you still only have one (1) year from the enrollment date to complete Part A, Part B, the course project and pass the course final exam.
Once you are registered, you will be enrolled in the program as a student within 1-2 business days. You will receive a welcome email that details how to start. The courses do NOT need to be purchased in any particular order, however, it is recommended that you complete Part A prior to starting Part B. This includes everything you need for completion of the course. Additional study tools may be purchased separately at check out or at a future date.
WHAT IS THE TOTAL COST OF THE PROGRAM?
The total cost of the program is listed in the pre-licensing catalog, which you can find by clicking here. The student is responsible for all fees outside of this program, which includes the background check, licensing exam, etc...
WHAT STEPS ARE NECESSARY TO COMPLETE THE COURSES WITHIN THE PROGRAM?
In order to receive a certificate of completion for the program, you will have to complete all necessary course work, which is Part A, Part B, the course project and successfully pass the online proctored final exam (not the licensing exam) with a score of 75% or better (three total attempts allowed).
DO I HAVE AN INSTRUCTOR?

DO I HAVE TO PASS A FINAL EXAM TO COMPLETE THE PROGRAM?
To complete the program (and be eligible to sit for the licensing exam), you must successfully pass an online proctored final exam. The exam is proctored and consists of 100 multiple choice questions. You have three total attempts to score a 75% or better and two hours to complete it. The course exam and proctoring service are included in the program. If you have completed the coursework and are ready to schedule the course final exam, email KRI at firstname.lastname@example.org for instructions and to be set up with the proctoring service. The proctoring service is available 24/7 with a list of their available times that you can pick from.
If you do not pass on the first attempt, you must email email@example.com to be set up for the second attempt. At that time you must wait four (4) business days before you can take the second attempt. If you do not pass on the second attempt, you must again email firstname.lastname@example.org to be set up with the third attempt and wait another four (4) days. Additionally, your instructor will review your exams that were taken and provide a list of recommendations and areas of deficiencies. The instructor is available to you throughout the whole program and is willing to help with any additional training to be successful. If you do not pass the exam on the third attempt, you must repurchase and retake the program before you can sit for the course final exams again. The waiting times and re-taking the program is a Kentucky license law requirement.
Note: the final exam is not the licensing exam but an exit exam for the program. The licensing exam is in addition to the course final exam.
WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO IF I DON'T PASS THE EXAM AFTER MY THIRD ATTEMPT?
If you do not pass the course final exam on the third attempt, you must repurchase and retake the course before you can sit for the exams again. A representative from KRI will be in touch with you to explain what steps need to be taken.
ARE THERE ADDITIONAL STUDY MATERIALS AVAILABLE?
You can find additional study tools in Part B, located before the exam page. You also may purchase additional study guides or materials to help you understand the material and pass the course final or licensing exam. Those can be found here.
Tip: Students have consistently stated that by understanding foundational concepts, knowing the glossary of real estate terms and reviewing the KRI license law manual, they have had better success at passing the program.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I COMPLETE THE PROGRAM?
After successfully completing the course final exam, the student will receive a completion certificate by email within ten (10) business days along with an email on how to complete the background check (fingerprints) and schedule the licensing exam with PSI. The background check must be completed and sent before the PSI exam can be scheduled. The student is responsible for all fees outside of this program, which includes the background check, licensing exam, etc...
You must attach the certificate of completion to your licensing application – do not lose your certificate.

I TOOK THE LICENSING EXAM AND DIDN'T PASS. NOW WHAT?
If you didn't pass the first attempt at the licensing exam, you can take it again. In fact, you can take it as many times as you want but keep in mind you must pay the exam fee on each additional attempt. Good news, though, you only have to retake the portion of the exam - national or state law - you failed. You have four (4) months for the retake. After that, both portions must be retaken.
