Reporting: Real estate course completions are reported to Pearson Vue who then updates the Utah Division of Real Estate. The state requires schools to report course completions within seven to ten days from the course completion date. Course completions will be reported and posted within this time frame. IMPORTANT: The Division of Real Estate states that a licensee's CE should be completed by the 15th of the month in order to have the hours banked in time to renew online before the renewal date.
Expiration Date of Course: Course expiration dates vary by course but are generally one year after order date. Each individual course will have an expiration date listed in your account.
Final Exams: Final exams must be passed with at least a 75% and may be taken as many times as necessary in order to pass.
Certificates: Immediately upon real estate course completion, The CE Shop will provide students with an electronic copy of the course certificate of completion. Certificates will remain in your account for a minimum of five years, should you need additional copies at a later time. Please refer to your renewal application to determine if you need to submit your certificate(s) of completion with your renewal. Course completion dates are recorded using Central Standard Time. Please note that the date on your certificate of completion will reflect this.
Repeat Courses: Courses may only be taken once to meet the requirements for Continuing Education, during a single license period.
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.
Post-Licensing: All real estate agents who were licensed on or after 07/01/07 are required to complete the 12-hour new agent course during their first renewal period in addition to 6 hours of electives to meet the 18-hour requirement.
