FAQ: What are the CE requirements for first-time renewals in Missouri?

What are the CE requirements for first-time renewals in Missouri?

Any real estate salesperson licensee in Missouri with an active license must complete 12 hours of continuing education during their two-year licensing period. Missouri Statute 339.40(8). Note: each classroom hour is defined as 50 minutes for continuing education purposes.

Continuing Education (CE) coursework must include at least three hours of MREC-approved education as a core requirement. For the 2020 through 2022 renewal, a three-hour class must be completed in Real Estate Ethics. The balance of CE required hours should be MREC-approved coursework offered by MREC-approved schools. However, the Missouri Real Estate Commission will consider other continuing education coursework completed outside the state for a $10 review fee. Missouri CSR2250-10.100(5). Non-pre-approved coursework must be submitted for approval at least three months before the license's expiration date to ensure there is enough time for the MREC to complete the process.

All real estate licenses in Missouri are issued as active licenses unless those real estate licensees have proactively placed the license in an inactive status.

Note: while online schools report results to the Missouri Real Estate Commission, ultimately, Missouri real estate licensees are tasked with the responsibility to ensure that the continuing education credits are accurately reflected in the MREC’s records.

Note: according to MREC Board Rule 2250-3.010(5), salesperson applications postmarked between August 1 and September 30 of even-numbered years will be awarded a real estate license that is valid for the next licensing period (odd-numbered year) with no continuing education requirements for that first year.
