Online Info

As a real estate licensee, you will have continuing education requirements that must be completed before June 30 each year (except for the first June 30 that occurs after you become licensed for the first time or become newly relicensed after your license was inactive for more than two years). In general, real estate salespersons must complete 30 hours of real estate continuing education before their June 30 license renewal deadline, and at least 15 of those hours must be completed before the previous June 30. Continuing education must be taken in the appropriate license period; extra hours or courses do not carry over into the next period or satisfy future renewal requirements.

As part of the 15 hours each license year, a real estate salesperson must complete a specific general module continuing education course. As part of the 30 hours required for license renewal, a real estate salesperson must successfully complete at least one hour of training in courses in laws or regulations on agency representation and disclosure (“Agency Laws”), and at least one hour of training in courses in state and federal fair housing laws, regulations, and rules, other antidiscrimination laws, or courses designed to help licensees to meet the housing needs of immigrant and other underserved populations (“Fair Housing”).

  • You may not repeat a continuing education course for credit during the same licensing period.


"Commercial-only" brokers and salespersons who are engaged solely in the commercial real estate business and whose commercial-only status has been verified with the Commerce Department through the required filing do not have to complete a course on agency law, a course on fair housing, and a specific module training course, but must fulfill all other continuing education requirements. 

The instructions that the broker must follow in order to submit the required filing can be found in the "Becoming a Licensed Real Estate Broker" section of this guide.
