Do you need to renew your Texas real estate salesperson or broker license? To renew either of these licenses, first determine if your license renewal is in Sales Agent Apprentice Education (SAE) or Continuing Education (CE) status by viewing the descriptions below.

SAE (Sales Agent Apprentice Education) Courses

All active and inactive salespersons, who are under the SAE requirement must show evidence of having completed a minimum of 90 hours in qualifying real estate education plus four hours of Legal Update I and four hours of Legal Update II during the two-year license term, so that a total of 278 hours have been completed by the end of the second year of licensure.  If your broker has made you a supervisor for six months or more, you also need to take the 6-hour Broker Responsibility course as part of the 278 hour requirement.


CE (Continuing Education) Courses

Continuing Education – Active Sales Agents who are not subject to SAE requirements are required to complete CE for an active license renewal. The CE requirement is 18 hours, in which 8 of the 18 hours must consist of Legal Update I and Legal Update II.

Once you have determined your continuing education requirement, be sure to make your course selection. Take advantage of the convenient home-study courses we offer and complete your education requirements on your schedule.

In addition, if you have a Broker’s license, or are a designated supervisor, you are required to complete the six-hour Broker Responsibility course as part of the 18-hour requirement.
