General Information

Online Limitations

There is no limit to the number of CE hours that may be taken online.

The IREC requires a timing mechanism for all distance education courses to ensure that courses cannot be completed in less time than the approved credit hours. Therefore our courses will time out after 30 minutes of inactivity!  Please note that a proctored exam is NOT required by IREC.

Only one final exam retake is allowed, if the final exam is not passed the second time, the licensee must retake the entire course and pass the final exam in order to receive credit .

Online Info

Idaho's CE Requirement:
First renewal on active status – 12 hours post license (8-hour mandatory post license Fundamentals course and one 4-hour post license module of your choice) plus 2 different Idaho core courses.

Subsequent renewal on active status - 12 elective hours plus two different Idaho core courses
Renewal on inactive status - None

Idaho's Core requirement:

Licensees are required to take two unique Idaho Core courses in every active renewal period. Other state's core courses will not count. * "Cracking the Code" is NOT the Commission core course!

Reminder: A Commission Core Course can only be taken one time to receive mandatory credit, you cannot repeat a core course from one cycle to the next.

Use the Education Lookup to search for certified courses, or contact the Commission for assistance. Some Professional Designation courses are also accepted for CE credit. These classes are listed as "certified" in the IREC database.

IREC accepts many (but not all) courses taken in other jurisdictions, and some courses offered for other professions. Submit a Licensee Request for CE Credit form at least 60 days prior to your Idaho license renewal date. Courses must fit within Rule 402 (approved topics) for CE and must relate to real estate brokerage practice. Online courses must be ARELLO certified.
