If you have sponsored one or more sales agents, served as the designated broker for a business entity that sponsors sales agents, or have been made a supervisor of other license holders, you will need to take the 6-hour Broker Responsibility Course as part of your 18 hours of CE.
If TREC records do not reflect completion of CE requirements at the time you submit your renewal application, you must pay a $200 CE Deferral Fee, or renew in inactive status. Payment of the CE Deferral Fee allows you to remain active for an additional 60 days from your expiration date to complete CE requirements.
Course Security Questions: CE credit courses contain security questions which must be answered correctly within one minute. Each question is case sensitive. Per TREC regulation, course providers are unable to make available the security questions and answers to enrollees. Please be sure to read carefully.
Seat Time: The Texas Real Estate Commission requires a timing device for all distance education courses to ensure that courses cannot be completed in less time than the approved credit hours. Please note that your course will time out after several minutes of inactivity.
Final Exam: While students are required to demonstrate mastery of the content at certain levels of the course, there is no passing score requirement for the final exam.
Expiration Date of Course: Course expiration dates vary but are generally 6 months after enrollment date.
Certificate: With few exceptions, online course completion certificates are available for download at course conclusion and posted directly to your student dashboard.
