Learn what's required for your Real Estate License in Kentucky

This real estate licensing information summarizes the minimum requirements established by the Kentucky Real Estate Commission. We recommend you contact the Kentucky Real Estate Commission for more detailed information or changes.

If you obtain real estate licenses in multiple states, we recommend you check each state's requirements.

Kentucky Real Estate License: All

Kentucky Real Estate Licensees are required to obtain 6 hours of continuing education every year including 3 hours of a legal topic course.

Continuing education is due on December 31 every year and the license renewal is by March 31 of the following spring.

A 6-hour Kentucky Core Course is required based on the licensee’s date of birth once every 4 years. McKissock is proud to offer this required course

The Kentucky Real Estate Commission requires an electronic signature (in lieu of the required affidavit) upon the start and completion of all courses (except non-credit courses).

Per the Kentucky Commission on Proprietary Education, an enrollment agreement shall be completed and returned to McKissock prior to beginning course work. Note: McKissock cannot issue Kentucky Real Estate credit without a completed enrollment agreement on file. Enrollment agreement documents can be found in the documents section of each course.  This agreement is separate from that of the requirement of an affidavit from the Commission.
