7)         be qualified by experience or education as set forth in Section 30-25 of the Act. In determining whether a person is qualified to teach CE under that Section, the Division may consider:

 

A)        teaching experience;

 

B)        real estate experience; and

 

C)        any real estate, business or legal education.

 

c)         Notwithstanding any other provision to the contrary, licensed pre-license instructors are qualified as CE instructors if they submit a CE instructor application to the Division and pay the required fee set forth in Section 1450.130.

 

d)         The Division shall notify the applicant in writing of its decision. The Division may restrict a CE instructor's license to teaching only certain CE courses or certain types of CE courses. In the event the application is denied, the reasons will be provided and the applicant advised that the applicant may request a hearing on the merits as provided for in Section 20-60 of the Act and Article 10 of the Illinois Administrative Procedure Act.
