324.085 gives the commission authority to require a minimum rating of all

instructors approved to teach continuing education courses. KRS 324.281(5)

gives the commission the authority to promulgate administrative regulations.

This administrative regulation outlines the minimum rating required of all

instructors and the means of dealing with instructors who received ratings

education instructors shall:

      (1) Be approved by the Kentucky Real

      (2) Enforce the Guidelines for Classroom

Management as developed by the commission as part of the continuing education

program; and

      (3) Comply with the Generally-Accepted

Principles of Education (GAPE) developed by the Real Estate Educators

Association, adopted by the Kentucky Real Estate Commission as the standard for

classroom presentation, and incorporated by reference in 201 KAR 11:450.


      Section 2. Evaluation of Instructors. (1)

Each continuing education provider shall distribute a continuing education

instructor evaluation form to each student and collect a continuing education

evaluation form from each student at the end of the course.

      (2) Within ten (10) days of course

conclusion, the course provider shall deliver all continuing education instructor

evaluation forms to the commission education director.

      (3) If a course provider fails to submit

all forms completed by students and provided to the course provider, the

commission may suspend the course provider’s approval.

      (4) All continuing education evaluation

forms shall be reviewed by the commission.

      (5) The commission education director

shall review the course approval percentage rating for each instructor.

      (6) An eighty-five (85) percent approval

rating shall be required in the categories of "instructor knowledge"

and "instructor presentation".

      (7) The comments section of the

continuing education evaluation forms shall be reviewed for other remarks

concerning the instructor’s performance.

      (8) After a second rating lower than

eighty-five (85) percent, the commission shall notify the instructor and the

course provider of the deficiency.

      (9) The next class taught by the

instructor shall be monitored by a commission representative. The commission

monitor shall submit a recommendation to the commission as to whether the

instructor should be allowed to continue to teach courses.

      (10) Based on the recommendation of the

monitor, the evaluation score and the comments from the third class, a

recommendation will be made to the commission to:

      (a) Take no further action;

      (b) To suspend the approval of the

instructor; or

      (c) To place the instructor on probation

pending the evaluation and review of a future class.

      (11) In the event the commission issues a

probationary order the commission shall outline the length and terms of the

probationary period as well as the date of the class to be monitored.

      (12) At the conclusion of the

probationary period, the commission education director shall recommend to the

commission whether the instructor’s approval shall continue.

      (13) The commission shall consider the

education director’s recommendations and determine whether the instructor’s

approval shall continue or be removed.

      (14) The commission shall notify the

instructor and the school of its decision in writing.

      (15) If probation has ended

satisfactorily, the instructor’s approval shall be reinstated.

      (16) If the commission determines that

instructor approval shall be suspended, the instructor shall not be allowed to

teach any commission-approved education courses unless approval is reinstated.

      (17) In any class with ten (10) or fewer

participants for which the instructor receives at least one (1) evaluation

below eighty-five (85) percent, the commission shall not consider the highest

and lowest course approval percentage rating in order to ensure greater accuracy

in the rating.

      (18) The annual recertification of

instructors and continuing education courses shall include an in-depth review

of the evaluations completed by the students and those of any monitor that may

have been present for the class.

      (19)(a) Any instructor who has been

suspended from teaching continuing education courses may apply for

reinstatement by:

      1. Submitting an application for approval

to the commission;

      2. If the deficiency is in presentation,

matter, the instructor shall attend a prescribed number of credit hours in that

subject approved by the commission upon request;

      4. Submitting proof of attendance at the

required course;
