MN Real Estate License Continuing Education Requirements

SPAAR - 07/06/2022

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).

The MN Department of Commerce (DOC) requires real estate salespersons to complete 30 hours of real estate continuing education (CE) 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. You may not repeat a continuing education course for credit during the same licensing period.


REQUIRED COURSES: As part of required hours, there are minimum required courses to complete.

  • At least one hour of “Agency Laws” must be completed as part of the 30 hours required for license renewal.
  • At least one hour of “Fair Housing” must be completed as part of the 30 hours required for license renewal.
  • A specific general module continuing education course must be completed as part of the 15 hours each license year:
    • 21/22 General Module: The History of Diversity in Homeownership must be completed by June 30, 2022.
    • 22/23 General Module: Practical Application to Inclusive Representation must be completed by June 30, 2023.
