Continuing Education (CE) courses are a state requirement for most real estate professionals but can also be advantageous to your real estate career on many levels. The benefits of taking the right CE courses not only includes keeping you in line with your state’s requirements but can give your career a much needed boost and edge over your competition.

In today’s world, there’s no need to attend night classes or long lectures. Technology has made taking classes easy and convenient through online learning platforms such as License Classroom. You can work at your own pace without the hassle of a lot of paperwork and in-person commitments. If you’re an agent in Texas, Arizona or Georgia (or one of the many other states where License Classroom courses are offered) you’ll find the state accredited courses that you need to meet your state’s requirements and
enhance your real estate career.

In this article, we will discover some of our staff’s favorite courses that many Realtors will find relevant to their work.

Texas (CE)

Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC) requires that real estate licensees complete 18 hours of CE during each license renewal cycle (after your first renewal). License Classroom offers two 18 hour course packages to conveniently fulfill these requirements. Most agents and brokers should take the package Salesperson & Broker CE, while those who supervise other agents should take Designated Broker CE.

The courses to fulfil this credit hour requirement are referred to as Salesperson Apprenticeship Education (SAE). License Classroom offers two SAE course bundles that will satisfy TREC’s credit hours requirement, one for agents who already took Legal Update I & II and another for those who haven’t yet.
