The Associate Broker Course
You have your Maine Sales Agent license. What's next?
Start your Associate Broker Course NOW!
Did you know?? It is NOT necessary to wait to get started with this course.
You must complete and pass the course and all field requirements BEFORE your Sales Agent license expires. Ideally, once you have been involved with a couple of transactions you are ready to enroll. Many students complete this course during their second year of being licensed as a Sales Agent.
We are pleased to offer our Associate Broker Course in a "blended" format where you complete online self-study at your own pace and attend workshops in the classroom or via Livestream. You may start your online study as soon as you register and will attend the workshops as scheduled in each class offering. (see below)
The Associate Broker Course quickly reviews what you learned in the Sales Agent Course then does a "deep dive" into topics of interest to real estate licensees practicing here in Maine. There is no textbook, and there are no "state" or "national" exams after you complete the course.
- Complete 34 hours of online self-study -- videos, audio clips, animations, knowledge checks, case studies, scored quizzes -- at your own pace, in accordance with the training plan provided.
- Attend workshops. Take the scheduled workshops after the required online content for each workshop including case studies and exercises that you will bring to each workshop.
- Take a 2-hour Final Exam proctored by your instructor in-person at the end of your last workshop, or as scheduled.
To be eligible to apply for your Associate Broker license you must achieve a grade of 75% or above in this course and complete 40 hours of Documented Field Experience under the supervision of your designated broker (or his or her designee).

What our past students are saying:
"Good evening! I just finished the Associate Broker Course with Walter Boomsma. I just want to take a minute to say how impressed I was with your instructor's overall performance. Walter goes above and beyond to make sure everyone succeeds. I'll keep this short and sweet. I just feel this man deserves recognition. Thank you, from a very satisfied student!"
"I really like your teaching style! I learned so much and you kept us active and focused for the entire day. This says a lot coming from a full-time third-grade teacher who sat through dull professional development workshop lectures ALL Day Thursday; then a one hour (very motivating) keynote from the state education commissioner on Friday morning, followed by a full day of professional development sessions. I wondered how I'd keep up the learning stamina for Saturday....and you made it great. I can see how valuable a live class is, as opposed to the home-study version I did with another provider for my sales agent course. I'm looking forward to our next few classes! Thank you to Jean-Marie Caterina!"
"As you’ve heard a number of times, your courses are always informative and educational. It is always refreshing to me to gain from the knowledge and experience of my peers but it continues to amaze me how instructors like yourself bring real-world scenarios to the classroom. Your statement to the class that TRELG isn’t in the business to fail students but to educate them gives an amazing boost of confidence to those of us who are still learning and questioning our competence in the field. The industry is very lucky to have you and your counterparts as part of the professional platform! Great job again!"
