If you complete more than one core course in the same renewal cycle, the system will not recognize the second core course and you will not receive any credit for the second core course.
Special Licenses: There is a special license issued in TN - Designated Agent for Vacation Lodging. This licensee must take CE, but The CE Shop cannot report the course on their behalf. Each licensee must send their certificate(s) directly to the state.
