NEW! All Novalis Courses Now Offered Exclusively Online
Novalis Learning has phased out its Home Study (Booklet) courses and now only offers continuing education online. These Distance Learning courses allow you to complete your education requirements wherever and whenever you choose! Our four offerings will comply with the 12 hours of education necessary to renew your license by December 31, 2022, and include the 1-hour Sexual Harassment Prevention Training requirement. In addition, new courses will be added this Spring to replace two of our existing ones so the topics you’re studying remain relevant.
NEW! Easier Log-In to Purchase and Access Novalis Online Distance Learning Courses
Novalis Learning’s Distance Learning courses online are now available for purchase through the same login portal as your coursework, making it easier to access with a single username and password.
Novalis Online Proctored Exams
Novalis makes it easy to renew your Illinois auctioneer license by offering proctored exams online. Purchase the number of proctored exams you need, coordinate a convenient time with a Novalis proctor, and take the test(s) required for your license renewal. To sign up for this popular online service, simply purchase the exams through our Distance Learning courses portal and follow the instructions for scheduling the tests. Note that you are not required to use this service and you can still use an “in-person” proctor, if that is more convenient.
Distance Learning — Online
Our distance learning offerings include the mandated “Sexual Harassment Prevention Training,” which we have combined with the “Ethics” topic for a 3-hour mandatory course. We also have the nine additional hours you need to meet the 12-hour CE requirement necessary to renew your license before December 31, 2022. Use online learning to complete your training on a schedule and at a pace and place that’s convenient for you!
Online Proctored Exams
Our online proctored exams make it easy to fulfill the test requirements for your Illinois auctioneer license from the safety of your own home or office. Just purchase the proctored exams you need, coordinate a convenient time with a Novalis proctor, and take the test(s) necessary for your license renewal. You must schedule your proctored exams online before December 15 to ensure time slots are available for testing prior to year-end 2022.
WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS HAVE TO SAY
The new, online courses were fantastic! Rigorous, informative, and providing a wealth of knowledge—Novalis delivered on Continuing Education. Thank you.
I have been using Novalis for 3 years and will…as long as I am licensed. Their online self-study options are easy to navigate and discuss practical information that actually pertains to my field. Even during the pandemic, …“online proctoring”…made the testing process easy and safe. If you are looking for a straightforward, time-saving method to renew your license—Novalis is a must!
I am so pleased I chose Novalis for the CE classes to maintain my auctioneer's license. As a relatively new auctioneer, this is the first time I've taken CE classes and I was extremely nervous, especially [with] the pandemic…. Novalis was excellent in their communications—every email or phone call was promptly returned and all of my concerns and questions were addressed….
…In light of the pandemic, [Novalis] made changes that were very helpful, such as Zoom proctoring and more online courses. I appreciated SO much the encouragement and thorough advice I received; I am well equipped to successfully complete my CE requirements. Many thanks to Sue…for [going] above and beyond to make me feel heard and reassured and confident as I work towards finishing my classes.
I think this new format of the classes and the proctor exam was real good. It saved me a lot of time, and I was able to complete it all within a week. Well worth it.
I enjoyed Novalis Learning’s online CE course offerings for licensed auctioneers. The instructors covered a lot of ground, and the study materials were very informative. And following the coursework, the online proctored exams were quite user-friendly. I would highly recommend Novalis to other Illinois-licensed auctioneers.
I wanted to mention the auctioneer CE course I have just finished. To say that I was impressed would be an understatement. The course was well thought out... relevant to the auction business. Being a presenter of sales techniques for over 28 years..., I recognize...expertise to present...with a level of knowledge that is necessary for learning. I have enjoyed using Novalis for many years now for my Continuing Education requirements and have found you are the people to go to for this need. Sue has done an outstanding job.... All I can suggest is keep up the great work.
Terrific: Not everything applied to me as an auctioneer of a large auction house, but everything was informative and enjoyable. See you in two years.
Due to my busy schedule and work, this is a very good way to keep up my schooling to receive my auctioneer’s license and to do the home study courses.
Novalis does a great job. Always patient with me. Always accommodating and go out of their way to make getting my continuing ed done before the deadline. Sue is very professional.
If you have to take continuing education (and I do), Novalis is the best that I have found.
