Managing Brokers have until April 30, 2019 to complete the required education for license renewal. Requirements are based on the date an individual was originally licensed in Illinois. License lookup provided by the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) may assist those who do not remember their license date.
State-approved continuing education courses are offered in a variety of formats by the Illinois REALTORS® Licensing & Training Center.
Individuals who were licensed prior to February 1, 2017 need to have completed 24 hours of CE between May 1, 2017 and April 30, 2019. The 24 hours must include 6 hours of Core (3 Core A and 3 Core B), a maximum of 6 hours elective credit, and 12 hours of Broker Management CE (a mandatory 12-hour interactive course).
Managing Brokers who were licensed after February 1, 2017 need to have taken 12 hours of CE between May 1, 2017 and April 30, 2019. The 12 hours must include a minimum of 6 hours of Core (3 Core A and 3 Core B) and a maximum of 6 hours elective credit.
Illinois licensed attorneys with an active attorney registration are exempt from completing continuing education hours, but must submit the requested renewal fee and application to the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation.
