CE and SAE INFORMATION
Important Info: Purvis Real Estate Training offers CE/continuing education courses for SAE and CE credits.
Real Estate Sales Agent and Broker licenses are issued for two-year time periods.
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 Agent Apprentice Education (SAE and CE): A Sales Agent is required to have a total of 270 qualifying real estate course hours, 4 hours of TREC's Legal Update I and 4 hour of TREC's Legal Update II posted to their education record on TREC's website prior to submitting the renewal. If they have been made a supervisor by their broker they must also complete the 6-hour Broker Responsibility course to renew their license.
Typically, a license holder under SAE has met the minimum 180 hour pre-licensure requirement and needs an additional 90 hours in qualifying education courses such as Real Estate Law and Real Estate Marketing to renew their license for the first time. You may repeat courses that were taken for pre-licensing so long as it has been 2 years since the course completion date. To allow adequate time for TREC processing, we recommend that the CE be completed 30 days before the license expiration date. Your CE course credits are submitted to TREC by Purvis. The license holder is responsible for submitting their SAE course completion certificates to TREC. Recall, you must also complete TREC's Legal Update I and Legal Update II courses and the 6-hour TREC Broker Responsibility course if you have been made a supervisor by your broker.
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
