MREA members always pay less for courses.
You will receive a “welcome” email from Training Director, Jenny Heinzen within 1-2 business days. That email will contain more details about the course and how to proceed.
No problem! Live webinars are recorded, and then posted on your course website (mreacourses.org) so you can listen afterwards. Webinar recordings (links) remain active until the last day of the course.
Webinars are essentially live “office hours” where you can call or login, ask questions, and review concepts, assignments, and quizzes with your instructor and other course participants.
The MREA does not give A-B-C “grades.” Our courses are simply PASS or DROP. If you complete all required activities within the allotted time frame, you will receive a Letter of Completion.
Our online course platform does have a “grade book” which records your scores on assignments & quizzes, so you can track your own progress if so desired. But there is no minimum score or percentage required to pass a course.
Your instructor regularly monitors your online progress, and will contact you directly via email if anything is missing or awry.
When you finish an online course, your instructor will email you a Letter of Completion.
YES! You will still have full access to all your materials, even after the course has ended. The only links that die are recordings of the (optional) live webinars. Everything else is yours to keep.
This is an independent study course. It is available all year long.
