Continuing Education Requirement

The state of Michigan requires real estate licensees to earn at least 18 hours of continuing education (CE) credits every 3 years in order to renew their real estate license. The topic number and course name must be different 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 law, rules and court cases regarding real estate. This is part of your 18 total for the 3 years and any extra legal hours earned 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 but if they are audited this does not guarantee they will not be penalized.

The current continuing education renewal period began November 1, 2018 and ends October 31, 2021. If you became licensed during the current period, your required hours may be prorated.

As of January 1, 2015, with a grant from The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, CE Marketplace, a division of Michigan Realtors®, has taken over the tracking of continuing education credits. To check your CE Credits log into the CE Marketplace ».
