Georgia State Requirement Details for Real Estate Post-Licensing Education
Continuing Education and License Renewal Date: Every 4 years
Hours Required by the State: 25 hours within the first year of licensure
Note: Newly licensed salespersons must complete the 25-hour Salesperson Post-License course in their first year of licensure. The 25-hour post-licensing course also counts as 9 hours towards fulfilling the continuing education requirement. Note: You will not receive the 9 hours of CE credit from the post-licensing course if your license has lapsed. To complete the CE renewal requirement, 27 additional continuing education hours must be taken to fulfill the 36-hour requirement; 3 mandatory hours on the topic of license law and 24 hours of elective credits.
Course Completions: Students must participate in each course for the number of hours of credit awarded.
The CE Shop’s Offering: 25 hours
The CE Shop is an approved provider in Georgia.
Provider Approval Number: 4551
Post-Licensing Final Exams: Final exams must be passed with a minimum of 75%, with one retake allowed. The retake cannot be taken on the same day as the original final exam. If a passing score is not achieved on the retake exam, the student must repeat the entire course (at no cost) before taking another final exam.
Proctoring Final Exams: The state requires that your final course exam be proctored. You’ll need to schedule an appointment with an online proctor in advance. You can find full details of the proctoring process here. Upon passing the final course exam you will be asked to sign an affidavit verifying your identity as the student who completed the course and the final course exam.
Reporting: The state requires schools to report course completions within seven to ten days from the course completion date.
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.
Additional Licensing Information: The process to renew in this state is to log in to the licensing system online and follow the prompts to renew. You must renew by midnight of your renewal due date to avoid lapsing and incurring a late fee.
