Complete Texas SAE Coursework Online

The Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC) requires 90 hours of SAE courses before your first renewal as a licensed sales agent. On top of this, you need the 8 hours of Texas Legal Updates that are mandatory for all renewals. Please note, if you're managing a team of sales associates, you will also be required to take the 6 hours broker responsibility course.

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 lets you to take your SAE finals whenever you want, as long as you have a camera, microphone, and internet connection.

Complete Your First License Renewal

Once you've passed each final, you'll get a certificate of completion. You can take your renewal courses any time in your first two years – just make sure you file copies of your certificates where you can find them.

You can't begin the renewal process until you receive your renewal notice. TREC will send this out 90 days before your expiration date.

Your course completion documents must be submitted to TREC at least 10 days before you send your license renewal application. If your course documents aren't already in TREC's system, your application won't be accepted. Unlike normal continuing education, TREC won't let you defer SAE courses.

TREC Provider #4591


How do I know you're a TREC-approved course provider?

360training's approved TREC Provider Number is 4591.

Is Continuing Education the Same as SAE?

No.  License renewals happen every 2 years in Texas. Every renewal requires 8 hours of TREC Legal Update education.

For your first license renewal, TREC requires an additional 90 hours of "SAE" (Sales Apprentice Education). This is a very specific curriculum for new agents.

After that, they require 18 hours of continuing education, including the Legal Updates. 

This package is intended for your first renewal. If this is NOT your first salesperson renewal, you need to take Continuing Education package instead.

How fast can I get through the courses?

You need to spend at least as much time in each course as the credit hours it's worth, but you can’t earn more than 12 hours' credit per day.

TREC reinforces this rule based on how many days you spend in each course and whether there is overlap between courses.  Each 30-hour qualifying course has to have at least 3 days between starting and completion. You also can't start and finish more than one qualifying course within the same 3 days.

TREC will not accept your certificate of completion for any one course unless 3 days have elapsed since the date/time you started it.
