Note: A licensee (not just first time renewal) may take any module(s) for continuing education credit.
At the April 17, 2018 meeting of the Real Estate Commission, pursuant to 49 Pa. Code § 35.384(b), the Commission voted to impose a continuing education requirement for the 2018-2020 renewal period. The requirement is that at least 1.5 hours of the required 14 hours of continuing education must be in the topic of Property Management as a real estate licensee and at least 2 hours must be in the topic of Advertising. The coursework must be completed between June 1, 2018 and May 31, 2020 in order to meet the requirement.
New licensees who are renewing for the first time are exempt from this one-time requirement, and are still required to complete the mandatory courses for new licensees pursuant to 49 PA Code §35.384(b).
First Time Renewal Requirements: A new licensee shall complete the Commission-developed 14-hour required courses for new licensees in satisfaction of the continuing education requirement. This means salesperson licensees must complete the General Module and either the Residential or Commercial Modules before they can renew their license.
