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 with our Texas CE 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.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

All of our courses are completely online, self-paced, and the course materials are provided in PDF format. We provide course materials in a PDF format so its easier for you to navigate the courses at your own pace.

TREC requires that all Qualifying Education course final exams be proctored or monitored by a disinterested third party proctor.

This solution is 100% online and can be utilized anytime at your convenience. If you prefer to find your own proctor, the following is a list of eligible third party proctors.

No. The Salesperson Apprenticeship Education (SAE) renewal is the first license renewal in Texas, two years after you obtain a real estate license. Like all renewals in Texas, TREC requires 8 hours of Legal Update education for each renewal.

This first renewal requires an additional 90 credit hours of coursework similar to the 180 hours that is completed during the pre-licensing process.

All subsequent renewals after the SAE renewal will require only 18 credit hours of coursework. 10 credit hours of electives and 8 credit hours of Legal Updates.

Each 30 Hour course will take a minimum of 3 days (72 hours) to complete. TREC will verify this by looking at course start and completion times on each course certificate. You may not start and finish a course within the same 3 day period. The maximum amount of time that you may spend on a particular course per day is 12 hours.

After completing each 30-hour course, you will receive a certificate of completion. You will need to submit your certificate(s) to TREC by mail or electronically via documents@trec.texas.gov.

All Continuing Education course completions will be reported by 360training.com within 24-48 business hours.

Reviews from Our Satisfied Customers

“License Classroom has provided me with the quickest and easiest online real estate education I have seen over my career. I completed my real estate pre-license courses through License Classroom over 7 years ago when I first got my Texas salespersons license, and they recently provided me broker education to obtain my broker’s license in 2021. I highly recommend them to anyone who wants to complete their state required education quickly and at a very affordable price.”

“License Classroom offers a completely online solution for everything, so you can take all the courses from the comfort of your home or office. I thought that I’d have to go to a testing center for my Texas SAE renewal, but they offer webcam proctoring! Also, I was able to reach a real person in America on the phone within 30 seconds any time I called!”

“The License Classroom CE course was easy-to-use and educational for me. I was able to work on the courses on my own time and the topics were updated and relevant to my slice of real estate. Since the courses are 100% online, I didn’t have to waste hours commuting to and sitting in a classroom.
