Complete Texas Continuing Education Coursework Online
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 school.
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
That means if a sales agent has been made a Supervisor by their broker, 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 3-4 mandatory courses, depending on your status (described above):
- Texas Legal Update I (4 hours; all licensees)
- Texas Legal Update II (4 hours; all licensees)
- Broker Responsibility (6 hours; supervising licensees only)
- 3 mandatory hours for Contracts (for license renewals on or after February 1, 2021)
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.
