Complete Texas SAE Coursework Online
The Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC) first renewal requires a total of 270 qualifying real estate course hours. If you obtained your license by submitting 180 hours of qualifying courses, you will need an additional 90 hours of elective SAE courses, plus 4 hours each of Legal Update I and Legal Update II courses. Sales agents who have been made a supervisor by their broker must also take the 6-hour Broker Responsibility course to renew. Effective 10/1/23, the 30-hour Real Estate Brokerage course must also be completed as part of the SAE requirement.
Our TREC-approved SAE courses are entirely conducted online – no need to commute to school. You can work through your courses at your own pace, on your own schedule.
Pass Your Proctored Final Exams (From Home!)
SAE courses must have a proctored final exam. TREC wants these tests to be administered by a third party to ensure there's no cheating. Usually, this involves an in-person test with an eligible proctor. You can take your exams that way if you prefer.
But for an additional fee, we offer a 100% online and on-demand TREC-approved recorded proctoring solution That allows you to take your SAE finals whenever you want, as long as you have a camera, microphone, and internet connection.
