Those with active real estate licenses in Missouri are required to complete 12 hours of approved continuing education courses in order to renew their license every two years. This applies to both brokers and salespersons. Nine of the hours can be taken as electives, and three must be taken as a core course. Completing realtor continuing education courses in a timely manner makes it easier, and there are various ways the realtors and salespersons can take the courses to fill the requirement.
How Long Do Licensees Have to Renew Realtor Licenses in 2016?
Missouri broker licenses will expire on June 30, 2016, and salesperson licenses expire on September 30, 2016, according to the Missouri Real Estate Commission, so licensees will want to have the education requirements completed before then. Salespersons may also place an application for credit for an unapproved course if it is submitted by June 30.
How Are the Study Courses Offered for Missouri?
Licensure requirements let licensees take either classroom-based courses, or opt for correspondence or online courses that have been preapproved. While some larger realty companies may offer in-house classes for licensees who are interested, individuals who work for smaller companies that do not offer such classes may want to take online or correspondence courses. Time considerations and comfort when studying make the online or correspondence courses attractive, especially when good support is available for those who have questions.
How a Renewal Bundle Saves You Money
Taking individual courses to renew your license can add up to a surprising figure. However, if you can bundle your courses, you can get a sizeable discount.
