Credit Hours: 27
27-hour package for new licensees renewing for 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.
With 27 hours of elective courses delivered online, you have the ability to access professional instruction anytime and anywhere you have an Internet connection! Filled with studio and “onsite” video learning objectives, these OnDemand courses engage, enlighten, and entertain.
