Licensing & Continuing Education Information



Continuing Education is due on EVEN years. Effective with your 2024 renewal, per the Department of Consumer Protection, all continuing education must be completed 90-days before license renewal.

State of CT Continuing Education Requirements for Salespersons and Brokers

Every two years, the State of Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection's Real Estate Commission requires licensees to complete a minimum of 12 hours of continuing education (CE). Continuing Education is due on the even-numbered renewal years and must be completed PRIOR to renewing your license in all even-numbered years. Continuing education must be completed 90 days before the real estate license renewal.

2024 Requirements:

Real estate brokers and salespersons shall take courses consisting of at least twelve (12) classroom hours in each two (2) year continuing education period, including one mandatory course consisting of at least three (3) classroom hours in current real estate and fair housing legislation, licensing laws and regulations.

All Continuing Education Certificates MAY be uploaded through the Department of Consumer Protection’s existing e-License System (the same system used for renewals). This process can be completed at any time by Real Estate licensees. There is no charge for this service.  Doing this is NOT mandatory, rather an option to help licensees keep track of their own completed CE. Approved Real Estate Schools are still required to submit your completion information to a different vendor which is not accessible for you to review your completed CE.


In Connecticut all licensing questions should be referred directly to the Department of Consumer Protection  as they handle licensing.

Am I required to complete CE?
All license holders must complete CE prior to every even-year renewal. CE is due 90 days prior to license renewal. You are only exempt if you PASSED A FULL LICENSING EXAM during the CE period. Visit the following links for complete information: for Brokers or for Salespersons

What if I am a reciprocal license holder?
Connecticut DOES NOT EXEMPT ANYONE from completion of Connecticut specific continuing education. Any continuing educational courses taken by the licensee not already approved by DCP shall be considered by the commission on an individual basis. Check out DCP’s Equivalency Review section for continuing education for details.

What if I am a referral only agent?
All license holders must complete CE. Choosing to only utilize your license for referrals does NOT exempt you from Connecticut CE requirements.
