Real Estate Broker Continuing Education



Illinois real estate brokers must complete 12 hours of continuing education by April 30, 2018.

The 12 hour requirement must be completed during the pre-renewal period of May 1, 2016 to April 30, 2018. Six hours of CE must be mandatory Core A and Core B.  Six hours can be elective courses. Continuing education completed during this period will be credited to the April 30, 2018 renewal date. If you’re not sure which courses you may have completed, click here to check the CE lookup page on the IDFPR website.

Please note: If you were licensed AFTER February 1, 2016 and this is your first renewal, you need to complete 30 hours of post licensing education (click here for more information). If you get your license AFTER February 1, 2018, your first renewal date is April 30, 2020 and no CE is required during this renewal period. However, you must complete 30 hours of post license education before your first renewal. The post license course must be completed after May 1, 2018 in order to be credited to your 2020 renewal. If you’re not sure of the date your license was issued, click here to check the license lookup page on the IDFPR website.

Practicing attorneys are exempt from the continuing education requirements.

Our Flexible Learning programs let you complete your CE requirements any way you want. We offer Home Study, Classroom/Home Study combination, Online classes, and Classroom/Webinar.

Real Estate is a Flexible and Exciting Career.

Let us help you obtain your Realtor® license.

A REALTOR® is a licensed real estate agent who is a member of the National Association of REALTORS®, (NAR) the largest trade group in the country.

Every agent is not a REALTOR®.  You become a REALTOR® after you pass your real estate course, pass the state license exam, join a real estate company and then join the National Association of REALTORS®.

According to the NAR, the term REALTOR has one, and only one, meaning:
"REALTOR® is a federally registered collective membership mark which identifies a real estate professional who is a member of the National Association of REALTORS® and subscribes to its strict Code of Ethics."

Michael Fair, President and Director of Your House Academy is an NAR member.
