State-licensed real estate agents can attain free Continuing Education credits by following the directions on the real estate cards. Members can hand out these cards to real estate agents, which explain how to log into the free courses.
When an agent logs into a course and enters the member's ID number, the member is automatically emailed. The first slide of the course is the member's contact information.
Though West Virginia does not regulate pest control inspection the West Virginia Department of Agriculture does require that those handling pesticides be licensed through the state. For more information look here. InterNACHI's Wood-Destroying Organisms (WDO) Inspection Course may be a beneficial educational tool for those looking to become licensed.
