First-Time License Renewal for Sales Agent Apprentice Education (SAE and CE): A Sales Agent is required to complete 98 hours of education when a license is renewed for the first time. TREC issues licenses for a two-year time period and TREC rules require completion of education before the license can be renewal fees may be paid to TREC. We recommend that you complete your education 30 days before your license expiration date. The continuing education for a Texas Real Estate Sales Agent is 90 hours of qualifying education (previously known as CORE education) and 8 hours of CE (previously known as MCE or mandatory continuing education).

The CE course topics are TREC Legal Update I and TREC Legal Update II. Each course is 4 hours of CE credit for a total of 8 hours of CE. The SAE course topics for 90 hours of SAE is any of the TREC qualifying education courses such as Real Estate Finance, Real Estate Appraisal and Real Estate Marketing. 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. Your SAE course credits and course completion certificates are submitted by the licensee. We offer SAE qualifying courses in classroom format thru our agreement with Sam Houston State University. We offer SAE qualifying courses via the internet as a correspondence course thru 360training.com.

Second and Subsequent License Renewal Info: 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.

Important Info: There are a few people who are exceptions to the TREC Rules because of college credits and other issues, so please contact our office at 817-738-4669 for clarification or assistance to determine if you need SAE or CE education.
