The total education requirement for all active licensees is 18 hours every two years. Of that 18 hours, at least 12 hours must be in approved continuing education (CE) with 6 hours in designated subject matter, "R" courses.

The remaining 6 hours may be in training approved by the licensee's broker that has been recognized by the Commission or may be in additional approved CE activity. (Licensees may substitute CE activities for all or part of the 6 hours of the allowed Broker-approved Training. Consult your broker with regard to broker-approved training opportunities. Please note: While CE activities will meet the broker-approved training requirement the reverse is NOT true; broker-approved training will NOT meet the CE requirement.)
