Mandatory courses must be completed through an approved real estate school or vendor by December 31, 2018, as part of the twelve (12) hour continuing education requirement for license renewal.

These courses should not be confused with similar courses of the same name. Be specific and request a 2018 mandatory topic course.

If you are a new licensee, please remember that completion of the 45-hour post-license curriculum does not relieve you from completing the mandatory topic course(s).
