Additional Information:

Per TREC regulations, courses over 8 hours in length are required to have a minimum exam pass score of 70%. Most of Empire Learning's Tennessee full renewal packages do not contain a course over 8 hours. Additionally, a final exam is not required at all for the 6-hour TREC CORE course.

CORE Course Eligibility:

Per TREC regulations, licensees are allowed to receive CORE course credit for any CORE course version they like at any time, as long as that course is still TREC approved.

Licensees can only receive credit for up to one CORE course per renewal period, meaning you cannot take the same course twice in the same renewal cycle. To view your previously taken courses, check here: https://verify.tn.gov/
