Out-of-State Continuing Education Credit

The Board will accept up to 8 hours of approved continuing education courses that a broker or experienced salesperson completed in another state, as long as the licensee holds a current real estate license in that other state and completed these continuing education courses during the current two-year license term. These 8 out-of-state hours can be applied only to the “Real Estate Related Subjects” (elective) Continuing Education category.

In order to receive these 8 hours of Continuing Education elective credits in the “Real Estate Related Subjects” category, a licensee must submit:

  • a copy of the current out-of-state license (with its expiration date) AND
  • a copy of EACH Continuing Education course completion certificate.
