Learn about the Georgia education requirements for real estate licensing and renewal.
Licensing Board/Commission: Georgia Real Estate Commission (GREC)
Georgia Real Estate Education Requirements:
- Georgia real estate salesperson license: 75 hours of pre-licensing education
- Georgia real estate broker license: 60 hours of pre-licensing education
- Georgia also requires 25 hours of post-license education
- Final exams: Georgia Real Estate Commission requires that your final course exam be proctored for qualifying education
Students can greatly benefit from Georgia-tailored exam prep to ensure they have a higher chance to pass their real estate exams.
Georgia State Reciprocity:
A real estate professional licensed in another state who becomes a Georgia resident may obtain an equivalent Georgia real estate license without further examination or education. The applicant must submit a certification of license history (no more than one year old) from the state in which the applicant is currently licensed. The certification of license history must show that the applicant:
- Is currently in good standing (license cannot be lapsed or expired)
- Has passed an examination for the type of license sought in Georgia
- Has met all pre-license and continuing education requirements required for that license by that state
For more information, see our full guide on reciprocity.
Georgia Real Estate Continuing Education (CE) and License Renewal Requirements:
In order to renew your real estate license in Georgia, 36 hours of real estate CE must be completed every 4 years from the month of your birth. Of the 36 hours, 3 hours must cover Georgia law and rules.
A licensee who has successfully completed a course to meet any part of such licensee’s continuing education credit may not repeat that course unless at least one full year has passed since the completion of that course.
