The Education Division is housed within the Education and Licensing Department of the Louisiana Real Estate Commission. Our function is to regulate and oversee real estate schools and vendors and the education programs they provide. It is our goal to ensure that quality education is available and accessible to licensees and applicants at all times. Our effort is ongoing and we work closely in conjunction with the Commission Education and Publication Committee to meet our goal.
All education hours are approved, accepted, and applied through the Education Division. There are three levels of education that must be completed to obtain and maintain a real estate license:
(1) Pre-license education refers to the qualifying hours that must be completed to take the initial real estate salesperson or broker license exam.
(2) Post-license education is a one-time requirement that must be completed within the first six months after an initial license is issued.
(3) Continuing education must be completed annually to qualify for license renewal. These hours include a mandatory topic that must be completed as part of the total required hours.
