The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (“LARA”) is the State’s real estate licensing authority. LARA requires that all licensed real estate agents and brokers meet certain continuing education requirements before their licenses will be renewed:
In addition, licensees cannot duplicate courses during the same 3-year cycle. That means you will receive credit for your courses as long as the course number and course name is different from the other courses that you have taken. 123 Con Ed LLC keeps track of those courses you have taken with us to ensure no duplication of our courses.
As of January 1, 2015, LARA no longer allows continuing education providers to report the course completions as a condition of real estate salesperson/broker license renewal. However, within each 3-year license cycle, a licensee must still complete at least 18 clock hours of continuing education courses, including 2 hours per calendar year involving law, rules and court cases regarding real estate. It will also be the licensee’s responsibility to present evidence that demonstrates that he/she has met the continuing education requirements, if requested by the State. For this reason and pursuant to R339.2504a(2) of LARA’s Administrative Code, you must keep certificates of completion for a minimum of four years.
If you have any questions about your hours or courses, contact LARA at 517-373-7353 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
