Requirements For NYS Licensed Real Estate Salespersons, Brokers, And Realtors

Education requirements for license renewal have changed. Real estate licensees whose licenses expire before July 1, 2021, must complete at least 22.5 hours of continuing education (CE) credit including three hours of fair housing and one hour of agency (two hours if you’re in your first license cycle). REALTORS® must also take an approved Code of Ethics course every three years. All licensees whose licenses expire on or after July 1, 2021, are required to take 22.5 hours of CE credit including three hours of fair housing, one hour of agency (two hours in the first license cycle), two and a half hours of ethical business practices (includes NAR Code of Ethics training) and one hour of recent legal matters (may include statutes, laws, regulations, rules, codes, DOS opinions and decisions, and court decisions). Brokers who were previously exempt from earning CE credit will no longer be exempt when they renew their licenses after July 1, 2021.

This course satisfies the Fair Housing requirement.
