Guidelines for a Successful License Renewal
With the managing broker license renewal deadline mere days away, make sure your license is in good standing.
Double-check your requirements
Most managing brokers are required to take 24 hours of continuing education (CE) to renew their licenses. However, if this is your first renewal the requirements are based on the managing broker’s original license date and the date of completion of managing broker pre-license education. See the managing broker license renewal chart on page 8 for more information about requirements. If you renew your license without meeting your CE requirements, you could face significant financial penalties and possibly lose the ability to practice.
If you are not certain, ask
Our Education Specialists are happy to discuss your license renewal requirements and ensure that you take the correct courses and number of hours.
Don’t wait! Managing broker license renewal applications must be submitted on or before April 30. There are different options available to renew, however renewing online is the fastest and simplest way to renew your license. Completing the process early will help ensure there is no interruption in your ability to practice.
