(Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2030)
Licensing of education provider instructors.
(a) No person shall act as either a pre-license or continuing education instructor without possessing a
valid pre-license or continuing
education instructor license and satisfying any other qualification criteria adopted by the Department by rule.
(a-5) Each person with a valid pre-license instructor license may teach pre-license, continuing education core curriculum, continuing education elective curriculum, or broker management education courses if they meet specific criteria adopted by the Department by rule. Those persons who have not met the criteria or who only possess a valid continuing education instructor license shall only teach continuing education elective curriculum courses. Any person with a valid continuing education instructor license who wishes to teach continuing education core curriculum or broker management continuing education courses must obtain a valid pre-license instructor license.
(b) Every person who desires to obtain an education provider instructor's license shall attend and successfully complete a one-day instructor development workshop, as approved by the Department. However, pre-license instructors who have complied with subsection (b) of this Section 30-25 shall not be required to complete the instructor workshop in order to teach continuing education elective curriculum courses.
(b-5) The term of licensure for a pre-license or continuing education instructor shall be 2 years, with renewal dates adopted by rule. Every person who desires to obtain a pre-license or continuing education instructor
license shall make
application to the Department in a manner prescribed by the Department, accompanied
by the fee adopted
by rule. In addition to any other information required to be
contained in the application,
every application for an original license shall include the
applicant's Social Security
number, which shall be retained in the agency's records pertaining to the license. As soon as practical, the Department shall assign a customer's identification number to each applicant for a license.
Every application for a renewal or restored license shall require the applicant's customer identification number.
The Department shall issue a pre-license or continuing education instructor license to
applicants who meet
qualification criteria established by this Act or rule.
(c) The Department may refuse to issue, suspend, revoke, or otherwise discipline a
pre-license or continuing education
instructor for good cause. Disciplinary proceedings shall be conducted by the
Board in the same
manner as other disciplinary proceedings under this Act. All pre-license instructors must teach at least one pre-license or continuing education core curriculum course within the period of licensure as a requirement for renewal of the instructor's license. All continuing
must teach at least one course within the period of licensure or take an
instructor training program
approved by the Department in lieu thereof as a requirement for renewal of the instructor's license.
(d) Each course transcript submitted by an education provider to the Department shall include the name and license number of the pre-license or continuing education instructor for the course.
(e) Licensed education provider instructors may teach for more than one licensed education provider.
