Do I need to take Legal Update I and Legal Update II courses as part of my Sales Apprentice Education (SAE) requirements?

Yes. If you are renewing your Texas Real Estate license for the first time, active or inactive, you are under the Sales Apprentice Education (SAE) requirements of Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC). A salesperson must complete an additional 90 hours in qualifying courses plus the Legal Update I and Legal Update II courses and should be posted to your license record prior to submitting your renewal.

Please note that Sales Apprentice Education (SAE) courses are considered as qualifying courses and course providers are not responsible for reporting of SAE completions. However, though Legal Update I and Legal Update II courses are part of your SAE requirements, we are responsible in reporting and submitting these completions to TREC.
