Continuing Education Requirement Overview
Active licensees are required to complete 18 clock hours of education every two years.
Continuing Education Component
At least 12 hours of the 18 must be in continuing education activities approved by the Commission. Of these 12 hours, at least 6 hours must be in designated subject matter. These courses are indicated with the letter "R" in the four-digit course content number that is assigned to the course. (See Meeting the Designated Subject Matter Requirement for more information.)
Duplication of Continuing Education Prohibition
Continuing Education Credit will not be granted when activities or substantial activity content is duplicated within 4 years. However, "R" courses are an exception to this rule and may be duplicated in subsequent continuing education periods but NOT in the same continuing education period. The course content number is used to determine duplication of content between courses i.e. don’t take the same number within 4 years.
Broker - Approved Training Requirement
As stated above, real estate licensees who wish to maintain active licenses will need to complete 18 hours of education. Licensees may take up to 6 hours of Broker-approved Training toward the 18 hour requirement every two years. Consult your broker with regard to broker-approved training opportunities.
You may substitute Continuing Education activities for all or part of the 6 hours allowed for Broker-approved Training. [Please note: while continuing education activities will meet the broker-approved training requirement the reverse is NOT true; broker-approved training will NOT meet the continuing education requirement.]
Duplication of Broker-approved Training Activities
Duplication of Broker-approved Training activities is not prohibited but is subject to designated broker approval.
