Michigan Real Estate Continued Education Deadline

If you are licensed as a Michigan Real Estate Salesperson or Broker, round one of completing your required continued education is fast approaching. October 31st, 2016 is the first deadline of this 3-year licensing cycle. This education must include at least 6 hours of legal topics pertinent to the real estate industry. There are a couple exceptions to the number of hours needed:

  • If you were licensed from 7/1/12 to 10/31/13, you only need 6 hours of Con Ed, 2 of which must be in legal topics.
  • If you were licensed between 11/1/13 to 10/31/14, you need 12 hours of Con Ed, 4 of which must be in legal topics.

What do Realtors need for license renewal?

As of January 1, 2015, real estate continued education hours are no longer reported to the Department by providers. Licensee’s must document evidence of completion and retain this evidence for a minimum of 4 years. To see the number of CE hours reported to the Department prior to January 1, 2015, visit, click “Check A License” and search by your name or license number. Click on “Continuing Education” to see what was reported.
