GSMAR Education Protocol

Registration for classes must be made a minimum of 24 hours before the beginning of the first class.  Cancellations must be made 24 hours prior to the start time of class in order to avoid a $20.00 No Show Fee.

There will always be a SIGN-IN and a SIGN-OUT process for CE Credited classes. It is your responsibility to sign-in and sign-out prior to the beginning and at the end of each class. PLEASE DO NOT PICK UP ANYBODY ELSE'S REGISTRATION CARD! THIS CAUSES CONFUSION, UNNECESSARY WORK AND A PROBLEM WITH THE REAL ESTATE COMMISSION!

For most CE courses 100% Classroom attendance is mandated by the Tennessee Real Estate Commission’s policy. Do not ask us to compromise and risk our TREC certification to teach continuing education.  Please be seated ready for class at the appointed time and remain in the classroom until you are dismissed by the instructor.

Leave the classroom only during designated break times or for a personal emergency. Cell phone calls, trips to the bathroom, refills of refreshments, conversations between students DO NOT constitute a personal emergency and therefore are not valid reasons to leave the classroom.

If a personal emergency occurs, please inform the instructor or staff as you leave if possible or call the Association office as soon as you are able.

Please do not attempt to take care of business with Association staff on Class Days. You need to focus on class and we are very preoccupied and busy trying to make your time as pleasant, meaningful, and valuable as possible.

If there is anything that needs the attention of the staff regarding restrooms, kitchen, or student materials please let us know during break time.

Please do not rearrange tables or chairs unless the instructor requests that you do so.  The training hall has been set up to best accommodate both students and instructors. Seating is at the front of the classroom in order to facilitate and enhance clear, audible interaction between the instructors and students.  The classroom temperature is set at 73º, which seems to please the majority of students. If the units need to been changed from heat to cool to maintain classroom comfort please let staff know as the thermostats do not switch automatically.

Classes are prepared and presented for your benefit and to meet mandatory requirements of the Tennessee Real Estate Commission. The facility is one of the finest in the nation. Please treat it with the respect deserved.

And remember, when you are standing at the door of that 5 million dollar listing with a more than interested buyer and your lockbox key is tamper locked or expired, it is us that you will have to call. So, if you are going to be unpleasant during class you should not wear your name tag.

By registering for class I acknowledge and accept the Education Protocol.
