Required CE Module

Important Notice for all Real Estate Brokers and Salespersons

Your continuing education requirements are affected by a law that took effect on July 1, 2011. As part of the continuing education that is due each license year, you must complete a module training course. (This is part of the 15 hours that are due each year, not in addition to it.) The course will be either 3.75 hours or 7.5 hours long and cover topics in real estate that are significant and are of current interest in the real estate market and profession. Brokers will also have the additional requirement to complete a module specifically designed to address issues relevant to brokers. Please note that commercial-only salespersons and brokers are exempt from these new module requirements. The Department of Commerce must publicize an outline of the topics covered by the module and the number of credit hours by April 1 each year.
