The Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC) requires real estate professionals to renew their license every 2 years.

Licensees who are renewing for the FIRST time are required to take a special set of courses known as Sales Apprentice Education (SAE). This is separate and distinct curriculum (see our "post-license" section for more information).

For your second and subsequent renewals, TREC requires 18 hours of continuing education (CE) with an approved provider like 360training.

We eliminate the commute to a classroom by delivering Texas continuing education courses online. You can finish them at your own pace, whenever you have the time.

Choose the Right Continuing Education Package

TREC has two sets of continuing education requirements for real estate licensees. They refer to these groups as Brokers and Salespersons, but that's just shorthand. 

A more accurate description would be "supervising licensees" and "everyone else." If you're a broker with no supervising responsibilities, you don't need the Broker package. If you have supervising responsibilities but you're not a Broker, then you do need the Broker package. 

The "broker" requirements kick in if you: 

  • sponsor sales agents, 
  • act as the designated broker of a business entity, OR 
  • are a delegated supervisor of one or more licensees for 6 months or more 

That means if a sales agent has been made a Supervisor by their broker for at least six months, they can’t meet their CE requirements without the Broker Responsibility course. 

Meet Real Estate CE Requirements with Courses that Interest You 

TREC's continuing education requirements include 2-3 mandatory courses, depending on your status (described above): 

  • TREC Legal Update I  (4 hours; all licensees) 
  • TREC Legal Update II  (4 hours; all licensees) 
  • Broker Responsibility  (6 hours; supervising licensees only) 

The remaining hours can be filled with TREC-approved elective courses. With 360training, you have plenty of approved electives to choose from! If the package offerings don't interest you, check out our a la carte courses.

FAQs

How fast can I get through the courses?

TREC requires you to spend at least as much time in each course as the approved credit hours.

This means that for your second and subsequent license renewals, you need to spend at least 18 hours actively working through the material.

 

What else is required to renew my Texas real estate license?

TREC will send a renewal notice 90 days before your expiration date—after that, you're eligible to renew. 

You should make sure that your CE completion documents are submitted AT LEAST 10 days before submitting your renewal application—if TREC doesn't have a record of your CE when you submit your application, you'll have to pay a $200 CE Deferral Fee or renew as an inactive license.

TREC gives you a six-month grace period after license expiration to renew.  After six months, you'll have to go through reinstatement proceedings. After two years, you'll have to reapply for a new license.
