Continuing Education Requirements
Every Real Estate agent is required to complete 24-hours of ADRE-approved Continuing Education (CE) courses every two (2) years to renew their real estate license. Education is typically delivered in two ways: learner-directed (anytime, anywhere, self-study format) and teacher-directed (instructor/school determines the place and direction). You may complete the required hours either way, or a combination of both!
There is no single entity for each members individual continuing education, and you are responsible for submitting your CE credits to ADRE for your renewal(s). Please make sure you keep copies of your certificates and enter them in a timely manner. To help you stay organized, please download and use the pdf Continuing Education Course Check List (926 KB) to help you keep track of the information.
