Home Study

The Capital Area Association of REALTORS in conjunction with the Illinois Association of REALTORS offers two home study options for continuing education classes. REALTORS may take classes on audio cassette or online (see below) at their own convenience rather than sit in a traditional classroom for scheduled continuing education classes. Home Study courses are available for purchase from CAAR.

The State of Illinois requires a proctored exam for all continuing education courses. Students may take the proctored exam at CAAR. After completing the course, the student should contact CAAR to arrange to take the exam.
