Continuing Education Requirements (Number of Hours and Course Content Required) - Real Estate Commission

What Every Licensee Should Know About Real Estate Continuing Education

The schedules below show the number of hours and course content required to renew a Standard real estate license. Continuing education is completed during the term of the license and prior to submitting a renewal application. Licensees must complete all hours due for each renewal period prior to submitting a reactivation application. You must complete CE and renew to remain inactive!


If this is FIRST RENEWAL IN MD AND your license expired BETWEEN 1/1/2014 AND 9/30/2015

Attention Brokers, Branch Office Managers, and Team Leaders – Once a licensee assumes a supervisory position as a broker, BOM, or team leader, he or she will have 90 days to complete 3 clock hours of MREC Required Supervision Course, if he or she didn’t already complete it for his/her last renewal

If you hold a license in another state, hours may be considered toward your Maryland ELECTIVES. To find out, email the out-of-state CE course completion certificate(s) to at least 30 days prior to the expiration of your license. If recognized, the hours credited will be entered into your licensing record and an eNotice sent to your email address of record. You may verify credits earned online. Click here.
NOTE – Maryland does not recognize post-licensing education.
