Tennessee Real Estate Continuing Education Requirements
Beginning January 1, 2005, a 60-hour Prelicense Principles course and 30-hour Course for New Affiliates must be passed prior to licensure as an affiliate broker.
Affiliate Broker Continuing Education Requirements
NOTE: There are different requirements for affiliate brokers based on the date the affiliate broker’s license was issued. Check your license issuance date to be sure that you meet the correct education requirement for license renewal.
- Affiliate Brokers licensed between July 1, 1980 and December 31, 2004 are required to complete 16 hours of approved continuing education between November 2, 2004 and November 1, 2006 to renew their licenses.
- Affiliate Brokers licensed between January 1, 2005 and June 30, 2005 are not required to complete continuing education until their subsequent licensing period.
- Affiliate Brokers licensed on or after July 1, 2005 are required to complete 16 hours of approved continuing education in their first and all subsequent licensing periods.
All affiliate brokers needing continuing education must take the TREC CORE 05/06 (a specific four-hour course which is approved for both classroom and home study delivery), and at least 12 hours of elective education.
POSTLICENSE EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS
“Brokers licensed after January 1, 2001 must complete 120 additional hours of Commission-approved education before the third anniversary of their broker license. Failure to comply with the post-broker education requirement will result in non-issuance of a license renewal. Brokers licensed after January 1, 2005 must complete continuing education requirements after completing the 120-hour postlicense requirement.”
