Reporting Continuing Education Courses to the Department for Renewal

Log onto the Department’s website at https://az.gov/webapp/dre and select the option to record Continuing Education (CE) credits.  Enter the ADRE course numbers and dates of the CE classes taken during the current CE Period.  If filing for renewal within one year after the license expiration date (the "grace year"), enter continuing education classes taken during the last 24 months of the license period or during the grace year.

The course number and dates appear on CE certificates issued by licensed real estate schools upon completion of each ADRE-approved course.  If the system returns an error message and information entered matches what is on the certificate, contact the issuing school to verify the course number and credit category.

Please note the following:

  • To renew a real estate license the licensee MUST possess certificates for ALL of the required courses and categories.
  • Filing a false or misleading application is grounds for license revocation or suspension, and assessment of a civil penalty.
  • Complete and enter all the required hours for one CE period before any courses are attributed to a subsequent CE period.  CE for more than one CE period at a time cannot be entered.
  • The course number from each certificate should be entered only one (1) time, even if it covers more than one (1) category.
  • When licensee's business is exclusively commercial properties, a substitute for the Fair Housing requirement may be claimed by contacting the department at click here prior to renewing the license.
