Important Info: Purvis Real Estate Training offers CE/continuing education courses for SAE and CE credits.

Please contact our office at 817-738-4669 for clarification or assistance to determine if you need SAE or CE education.
First-Time License Renewal for Sales Apprentice Education (SAE) and Continuing Education (CE): When you renew your real estate license for the first time, you are required to complete 90 hours of SAE course work in qualifying real estate subjects, as well as 8 hours of continuing education (CE). All hours must be posted to your education history on TREC's website BEFORE you can pay your TREC license renewal fees and complete the license renewal process. The required CE credits are in four hour increments and the required subjects are TREC Legal Update I and TREC Legal Update II. Beginning October 1, 2023,your 90 hours of SAE education must include a 30 hour Real Estate Brokerage course. We offer an online Real Estate Brokerage course but we do not offer the course in the classroom.
Important Note: Have you been designated as a supervisor or team leader by your broker? If so, you must also complete the 6-hour Broker Responsibility course prior to renewal of their license.
Typically, a license holder under SAE requirements has completed 180 hours of course work from their pre-licensing education requirement and needs an additional 90 hours in qualifying education courses such as Real Estate Law and Real Estate Marketing. Beginning October 1, 2023, a Sales Agent is required to complete a 30 credit hour Real Estate Brokerage course as a part of the 90 hour SAE requirement. You may repeat courses that were taken to meet the pre-licensing education requirement as long as it has been 2 years since the course completion date. To allow adequate time for TREC processing, we recommend that your education be completed 10 days before your license expiration date. Your CE course credits are submitted to TREC by Purvis. Your SAE course credits are submitted by Purvis for classroom format course and by 360training.com for online courses.
Second and Subsequent License Renewal Info (CE): After completion of the first license renewal, CE or continuing education is required every two years. The licensee is required to complete 18 hours of CE when renewing a license on ACTIVE status with TREC. Licenses on INACTIVE status with TREC are not required to complete CE before license renewal. Please access the "Renew License" tab on the TREC website for complete information on required courses for license renewal. https://www.trec.texas.gov/renew-license/real-estate-sales-agent
