Texas Real Estate License Renewal Requirements

The Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC) requires licensed real estate salespersons and brokers to renew their license every two years.

If you are renewing your salesperson license for the first time, TREC requires you to complete 98 hours of Salesperson Apprenticeship Education (SAE) courses. You are on the right page! Enroll in one of our Salesperson Apprenticeship Education (SAE) course packages to fulfill the TREC education requirement for your first license renewal.  Please note that a salesperson who has been made a supervisor by their broker prior to their first renewal also needs to take the 6-hour Broker Responsibility Course, which can be found below in our individual courses.

If you have already renewed your license once and this is your subsequent renewal or if you are a broker, TREC requires you to complete 18 hours of Continuing Education (CE) courses. CE courses are different than Salesperson Apprenticeship Education (SAE) courses and you can enroll in them by navigating to our Texas CE Packages.

No. The Salesperson Apprenticeship Education (SAE) renewal is the first license renewal in Texas, two years after you obtain a real estate license.

The first renewal requires a total of 270 qualifying real estate course hours. If you obtained your license by submitting 180 hours of qualifying courses, you will need an additional 90 hours of elective SAE courses, plus 4 hours each of Legal Update I and Legal Update II courses. Sales agents who have been made a supervisor by their broker must also take the 6-hour Broker Responsibility course to renew.

All subsequent renewals after the SAE renewal will require only 18 hours of Continuing Education.

Each 30 Credit Hour course will take a minimum of 3 days (72 hours) to complete, and TREC will verify this by looking at course start and completion times on each course certificate. The maximum amount of time that you may spend on a particular course per day is 12 hours.

TREC now requires course providers to report credits directly to TREC for all SAE completions. All students taking our TREC SAE courses will be asked to provide their license number upon course launch.

This update eliminates the need for licensed sales agents to send their course completion certificate(s) directly to TREC. All completion certificates will be reported to TREC by us within 24-48 business hours.
