Ann, I suspect this story is printed to illustrate how stupid our licensure laws are.

Mr. Peschke, that was my initial thought, along with don't they have more important issues to deal with in Concord? I lost my train of thought over the last paragraph about white women getting braids.

This is a start. The real target of industry people using absurd laws to create a barrier to entry thus limiting competition is the Real-estate industry.Some time ago a noted real-estate executive asked me to join his company. 1990...The problem was I didn't have a real-estate licence. So I registered to take the test which just so happened was a week away. I bought the book to study for the test. I took the test on a Saturday, I believe, and got the licence the next week.~~~You can no longer do that. The real-estate industry especially the poppycock schools who have lobbied to require 40 hours of "training" as a barrier to entry to the industry. That is $349 in "training and $155 in fees or $500.00 barrier to entry into an industry which is well controlled anyway.~~~There is nothing wrong with preparing yourself, and taking the test. You have to be under the tutelage of a Broker for 2000 hrs. and so many transactions before you can strike out for your self.~~~ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTSSALESPERSON CANDIDATES:Candidates for the salesperson’s examination shall showproof of completion of 40 hours of approved study prior tothe date of examination pursuant to RSA 331-A:10,I(b) andadministrative rule Rea 301.03(o) and (p) consisting of thefollowing:Evidence of beginning and successfully completing40 hours of accredited pre-licensing education consistingof the following: (1) New Hampshire accredited pre-licensing course with aminimum of 32 hours of classroom attendance and no morethan 8 hours of distance education within 1 year prior to thedate of examination; or (2) A minimum of 32 hours of classroom attendance andno more than 8 hours of distance education within 1 yearprior to the date of examination consisting of 34 hours ofaccredited national material completed in another state anda minimum of 6 hours of New Hampshire accredited statematerial.
