Delaware State Requirement Details for Real Estate Post-Licensing Education
Continuing Education and License Renewal Date: 4/30 every even-numbered year
Hours Required by the State: 12 hours within the first year of licensure
Note: Beginning May 01, 2022, new licensees must complete 12 hours within the first 90 days of licensure. These 12 hours do not count toward the additional 21 hours required of CE education for your first renewal.
- 3 hours in Module 1 (professional standards in real estate)
- 3 hours in Module 2 (agreement of sale and buyer representation)
- 3 hours in Module 3 (real estate documents and seller representation)

The CE Shop’s Offering: 12 hours
Post-Licensing Final Exams: Final exams must be passed with a minimum of 80% and may be taken as many times as necessary in order to pass.
Reporting: Real estate course completions are reported to the Delaware Real Estate Commission. The state requires schools to report course completions within seven to ten days from the course completion date. Course completions will be reported within this time frame. The Commission does not post CE credits to the licensee’s account. It is the responsibility of the licensee to ensure that they have completed the Continuing Education requirement.
Expiration Date of Course: Course expiration dates vary by course but are generally one year after order date. Each course has an individual expiration date which is listed in your account.
Certificates: Once The CE Shop has received the signed affidavit, your certificate of course completion will become available to download (and via email). The CE Shop will provide students with an electronic certificate of completion, upon completion of the course. Certificates will remain in your account for a minimum of five years, should you need additional copies. Please refer to your license application to determine if you need to submit your certificate of completion with your license request. Course completion dates are recorded using Central Standard Time. Please note that the date of your certificate of completion will reflect this.
License Renewal Process: The process to renew a license in Delaware is to log in to the licensing system online and follow the prompts to renew.
These 12 hours of CE will be applied to the total amount of required CE hours pursuant to the pro-ration schedule in Rule 13.2. Please refer to the Delaware Administrative Code for further details on the hours required for new licensees.
