Credit Hours: 27
One simple package for new licensees renewing the first time!
The Georgia Real Estate Commission requires a new Salesperson to complete a 25-hour post-licensing course during the first year of licensure. Most 25-hour postlicensing solutions will satisfy only 9 hours of the mandatory 36 hours of continuing education required to renew your license. Designed specifically for new Salespeople, this 27-hour CE package will help you fulfill the remainder of the hours needed (after you complete your 25-hour postlicensing requirement) to renew your license during the 4-year renewal period . It also includes the new Georgia 3-Hour Law course requirement.
