This doesn't mean you cannot be funny, but comments should either be informative or assist in fostering a meaningful learning environment for all.
LICENSING AGENCY REQUIREMENTS:
It is the user's responsibility to ensure that the course(s) chosen, comply with any credit the user may need for pre-license, renewal or state licensing purposes. It is the user's responsibility to ensure that he/she completes the required course(s) by any deadline they may have with any licensing agency.
Real Estate Courses: It is the user's responsibility to pick the appropriate courses to satisfy the user's licensing requirements. For instance - if the user is licensed by TREC, and is on the 1st renewal, the user may need 60-90 hours of SAE credit. Real Estate CE courses cannot be used for SAE credit and conversely SAE hours cannot be used for CE legal credit.
NMLS Courses: It is the user's responsibility to pick the appropriate courses to satisfy the user's licensing requirements. For instance - users may NOT take the same NMLS renewal CE course 2 consecutive years. In addition - some States occasionally require State Specific topics. User agrees to confirm the course meets the user's licensing requirements prior to purchase.
Licensing agencies may, on occasion, change renewal and/or pre-licensing education requirements. 123CE Inc is not responsible for these regulatory changes. For instance, such regulatory changes may change the required type of education or number of educational hours needed for renewal or to get licensed.
User understands that problems and connection issues can arise when dealing with computers and the internet. 123CE Inc. will not be held responsible for any delays or charges due to technical difficulties. 123CE Inc. will not refund tuition for partially completed courses or packages. 123CE Inc. will not refund tuition for courses purchased that do not meet the individual user's needs, however, user may pick different courses with prior approval from 123CE Inc. Any questions about the amount of credit that a course is approved for, should be resolved before purchasing a course. Once purchasing a course, the user must complete the course within 6 months. The user further understands and agrees that if the user disputes any or all of the charges made to the credit card for services rendered, user agrees to pay an additional $35.00 administration fee.
CREDIT CARD AUTHORIZATION
Authorization hold is the practice within the banking industry of authorizing electronic transactions completed with a debit card or credit card and holding this balance as unavailable either until the merchant clears the transaction (also called settlement), or the hold 'falls off'. In the case of debit cards, authorization holds can fall off the account (thus rendering the balance available again) anywhere from 1–5 days after the transaction date depending on the bank's policy; in the case of credit cards, holds may last as long as 30 days, depending on the user's issuing bank. User agrees that 123CE Inc will not be held liable in any way for these holds or authorizations.
ISSUING OF COURSE CREDIT
Credit will not be issued on any partially completed course. User will provide a licensing agency license number if required to issue credit to. If user provides the incorrect license number, user will not hold 123CE Inc. liable for the user's mistake. If payment has not been secured, the user understands that completion notification will NOT be forwarded to the user, any licensing agency, or any other entity until funds have cleared both the user’s account and the school’s bank account.
Real Estate Renewal Classes: 123CE Inc. will submit completion notifications usually within 1 business day of the course completion date to TREC, but no later the 10 days of course completion and completion of any required Alternative Delivery Methods Reporting Form(s). TREC will typically post the completed hours to the TREC website within 1 business day. The actual course completion date will be utilized when determining if the licensee completed the course before their license expiration date. For users waiting until their deadline to finish their courses, please be aware that the completion date and time of the course will be at minimum, the number of hours the course is approved for. Users will ensure they complete any renewal applications and pay fees with any state agency requiring the renewal (prior to their expiration date).
NMLS Renewal Courses: Although 123CE Inc. is allowed 7 days to submit course credit to NMLS, 123CE Inc will normally submit the credit the same day, but no later the 7 days of completion (credit banking). NMLS only accepts credit banking for courses during certain periods of time. 123CE Inc is not responsible if credit is posted late for the user's deadline in the event NMLS is not accepting credit banking, or the NMLS system is non-functional.
NEW TREC CE RULES EFFECTIVE JANUARY 1, 2015
Starting January 1, 2015; If your education is not posted with TREC and you try to renew your license and pay your renewal fee with TREC, you will be prompted to pay a $200 "deferral" fee.
How do you avoid this? Complete your education early.
Warning: Although TREC Rules allow school providers 10 days to issue credit, we submit CE credit electronically to TREC daily. This is the fastest way to get credit issued, but be advised, on a rare occasions, TREC's systems have been known to go down, sometimes for 24-48 hours. This can involve weekends. If this occurs, it may not be possible for any providers to issue your credit until TREC's systems are back up and running. This means it may not be posted in time with TREC to avoid paying the $200 deferral fee if you wait until your expiration date to complete your education. It is your responsibility to ensure you complete your education early enough to allow TREC’s processing time for your course credit.
Suggestion: To avoid all this, complete your education early. You are advised to complete your required renewal education at least 5 days prior to your expiration date and then pay your renewal fee with TREC. If you have questions concerning this new TREC Rule, please call us for assistance.

Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information.

123CE Inc. takes every precaution to protect its users’ information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, their information is protected both online and off-line. When the 123CE Inc. registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL. While on a secure page, such as the 123CE Inc. order form, the lock icon on the bottom or top of Web browsers such as Safari and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when users are just ‘surfing’. While 123CE Inc uses SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, it also does everything in its power to protect user-information off-line. All of its users’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in its offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, a billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. 123CE Inc employees must use password-protected computers to gain access to user information. Furthermore, ALL employees are kept up-to-date on security and privacy practices.
