The real estate industry is constantly changing and in order to stay on top of the trends, laws, contract changes and practice requirements, all active real estate brokers need to complete 24 hours of continuing education during each three (3) year license cycle.
Required Continuing Education
Twelve (12) of the 24 hours must be comprised of three (3) different versions of the four-hour (4) Annual Commission Update Course. The remaining twelve (12) hours can be any combination of elective credit hours approved the Colorado Real Estate Commission.
*Note: if a licensee takes four (4) versions of the update course during the license cycle, the fourth class may be counted toward the elective credit requirement. It may not be used for credit in next/upcoming license cycle.
Alternatives to the 24 hours
Annual Commission Update courses are mandatory but once the course's year had passed, that version can not be made it. In these cases, licensees will need to investigate alternative ways to meet the continuing education requirements. These options include:
**If a licensee has been inactive for longer than three (3) years/36 months, the licensee MUST complete either the State portion of the Colorado Broker's Exam or 48 Hours in Colorado Contracts & Requirements and 24 hours in Real Estate Closings for a total of 72 hours.
