45 Hours of North Dakota
Real Estate Post Licensing

Post-licensing (or first renewal) in real estate is required by certain states. In those states, agents are to complete specific course requirements as a means of transferring license status from probationary or provisional status into full licensure. The real estate post-license exam is the final step of the licensing process and also fulfills qualifications for salespersons to become brokers after completing the required credentials.

Hours Required by the State: If your Pre-Licensing course was completed before Jan 01, 202115 hours within one year of initial licensure

Effective 1/1/21: North Dakota will now require 90 hours of pre-licensing education and will no longer require post-licensing education. Licensee's that completed their 45 hours of pre-licensing education on/before 12/31/20, will still be required to complete 15 hours of post-licensing education within one year of initial licensure.

Course Completions: Students must participate in each course for the number of hours of credit awarded and daily course segments cannot exceed 8 hours in a 24-hour period. This course must be completed within one year of the date of enrollment.

Note: Any salesperson applicant, upon successful completion of the required post-licensing education requirement, is exempt from the continuing education requirement for only the continuing education period during which the salesperson applicant successfully completed the post-licensing education.

The CE Shop’s Offering: 15 hours

Post-Licensing Final Exams: Final exams must be passed with a minimum of 75% and may be taken as many times as necessary in order to pass. 

Reporting: Real estate course completions are reported to the North Dakota Real Estate Commission. The state requires schools to report course completions within five to seven days from the course completion date. This process does not take the place of licensees providing their Certificates of Completion to the state. It is the licensee's obligation to submit copies of their certificates to the Commission. 

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 in this state is to log in to the licensing system online and follow the prompts to renew.
