Don't Wait, Renew Your License Today
The state of Michigan requires real estate licensees to earn at least 18 hours of continuing education (CE) credits every 3 years to renew their real estate license. The topic number and course name must differ from the other courses a licensee has taken within the 3-year period. Each year a licensee must complete at least 2 hours of education that involves the law, rules, and court cases regarding real estate. This is part of your 18 total credits for the 3 years. Any extra legal hours earned will count towards the total requirement.
If a licensee fails to complete 2 hours of legal credit in a year, they may try to make it up in proceeding years. If the licensee is audited, this does not guarantee the licensee will not be penalized. To check your CE Credits, visit and log into the CE Marketplace. If you do not yet have an account, please create one by visiting CE Marketplace.

Important Reminder About Credit Reporting
After an instructor or school administrator has reported your class attendance, you will receive a class completion certificate by email. Watch for this email to arrive! It confirms that your class attendance has been successfully reported and recorded in your CE Marketplace account.
Please note that your class attendance will be reported to CE Marketplace within ten days. If you do not receive the confirmation, it is your responsibility to contact the school administrator or instructor.
Further, you do not need to send proof of CE to the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) unless you are being audited and asked to submit the information.
