Completion of the broker pre-licensure course by real estate licensees will be equivalent to completing the 12 hours of CE for the licensing cycle in which the broker pre-licensure course is taken. Licensees completing this course will not be required to take any CE courses to fulfill the requirement.
Licensees initially licensed in the second year of a real estate licensing cycle will not be required to complete any CE requirements in order to relicense for the next cycle (i.e. a licensee who obtains their license after July 1, 2012 will not be required to complete CE requirements to relicense for the cycle beginning July 1, 2013).
Licensees initially licensed in the first year of a real estate licensing cycle will be required to complete CE requirements in order to relicense for the next cycle (i.e. a licensee who obtains their license before July 1, 2012 will be required to complete CE requirements to relicense for the cycle beginning July 1, 2013)
CE courses will only count for credit one time during a licensing cycle.
Additionally, the bill establishes referral agents as a new type of real estate licensee who is not subject to the continuing education requirements as long as the licensee stays within the limited service category.
