Continuing Education Hours Do I Need?

You must complete 24 hours of approved continuing education every two years to renew a real estate license. Cemetery and membership camping licenses do not require continuing education credit for renewal.
Of the 24 hours required for renewal, you must obtain three hours credit in each of the following subjects:

  • Agency Law
  • Contract Law
  • Commissioner’s Standards
  • Real Estate Legal Issues
  • Fair Housing
  • Disclosure

The remaining six hours may be in any of these subjects or “general” courses.
