It’s easy to sign up for courses.

Simply click on the “Register/Login” button in the blue box above. You can order each course individually or you can order all 12 hours of state required instruction in one discounted 4-course package (with either online or 3rd-party proctoring included!).

Note: All 2024 students must register for a new account this year.

Students have two options for taking their state-mandated exams:

  • use the Novalis online proctoring service, or
  • use a pre-approved 3rd-party proctor (e.g., a librarian)

Note: A course must be completed in its entirety before the exam can be taken.

The 12 hours of instruction will address the topics of:

  • auction law,
  • auctioneer ethics & sexual harassment prevention training,
  • online auctions,
  • marketing the auction business.

Our online courses are approved continuing education for licensed auctioneers in Illinois — they’re easy to access and perfect for your busy schedule.
