Course Information

Information for taking the course:

  • Login - The student can access their Course Page by going to the "STUDENT LOGIN" link which is located on the top corner of all web pages of Cooke Real Estate School.
  • Sessions/ Chapters - The course is broken down into Sessions/Chapters. Each session corresponds to the chapters in the companion textbook provided with the course. To complete a session and move on to the next, you must finish the required assignments for that session. These assignments consist of watching the video presentation, going through the flashcard exercise of real estate Key Terms, completing vocabulary matching exercises, and passing the session's quizzes.
    1. Video Presentation - This is a recorded video presentation by professional instructors going over each session with synchronized PowerPoints within the presentation to help provide examples. This is an excellent format for visual and auditory learners. Upon completion of the video presentation, a green check mark will be shown.  To make sure time is recorded, click on the link at the top of the video SAVE AND RETURN. It is recommended to use Mozilla Firefox as your browser.
    2. Vocabulary Matching -Each session has a Flashcard exercise, going over the real estate Key Terms of each session/chapter in the course.  Next is a vocabulary matching exercise where the student needs to score 100% (all words and definitions to be matched correctly) to complete the exercise.  Upon completion of the matching exercise successfully a green check mark will be shown.  For reference, there is a Glossary at the back of the companion textbook of the course.
    3. Session Quizzes - As the student works through the course, there is an assessment quiz after every video presentation. The quiz must be answered with 80% accuracy before that session can be marked complete. Upon completion of the quiz successfully, a green check market will be shown.
  • Final Exam - Please review the EXAM tab on the Course Information Page or Orientation Page for additional information.

Seat time

  • Seat-time:  This course has a seat-time tracking system to let the student know much time they have spent on the course.  This course is good for 30 hours towards the licensed broker's 60-hour post-license requirement.  The course is designed around the required 30-hour timeline but in Florida, seat time for distance learning is NOT required.  So this tracking system is ONLY for the student's benefit.
  • Non-movement of the mouse for more than 20 minutes will disengage the student from the course page.


  • Timed End-of-Course Exam - This course has a timed one-hour-and-a-half hour final exam with 50 questions. The exam is multiple choice with four choices. The student must score a 75% or more on the end-of-course exam. Exam must be completed in one sitting.
  • Upon completing the exam access to the "Completion Certificate" is unlocked. The completion certificate is in Adobe PDF format. The student can print it out or save it on their computer in case they are audited by the Division of Real Estate.
  • At the same time the email is generated to the student with the Completion Certificate, the completion is automatically reported on the DBPR web portal for schools. The completion will show up about 24 to 48 hours after the report is completed.
  • If the student fails the online end-of-course exam, the student can take the second exam right away.
  • If a student fails the end-of-course exam the second time, the student will need to retake the course and pay again to receive a completion certificate.
