Real estate professionals are required to renew their license at the end of their state’s renewal cycle. Here are a few common renewal issues to avoid:
- Understand the difference between code and core. Code of Ethics (COE) is a class NAR requires all REALTORS to take once every two-year cycle. It’s not required for a state license but it is a requirement to keep your REALTOR membership. Core is continued education implemented by a state and is a requirement to renew on the state level, separate from NAR membership.
- Make sure you complete the appropriate number of CE credits. E.g., Idaho Real Estate Commission requires 12 CE credits per renewal cycle, in addition to the 2 CE credits required for core. If a licensee is not sure how many CE credits they should take for their state, they can look up the continuing education requirements at Real Estate Training Institute. Real Estate Training Institute offers online CE classes in HD video or fully narrated, with printable text.
- Don’t forget your post-license requirements. Many real estate professionals miss their post-license education requirements and jump right into their continuing education. The state will not allow you to renew your license if you haven’t completed the state required post-license courses.
Real Estate professionals must be aware of the renewal cycle they’re on and how many CE credits to take. It’s important to not wait until the last minute to renew your license. Visit Real Estate Training Institute and get your CE credits done quick and easy.
