Illinois REALTORS® 15-hour Broker Post-License Home Study Topics course is for licensed brokers in their first license renewal cycle. See our broker license renewal page for details about renewal.

You must have been issued your license prior to taking the exam for this course – you will not receive credit if you are operating on a 45-day permit.

New broker licensees are required to complete 30 hours of Post-License training prior to their first license renewal. This course combined with the 15-hour Broker POST-License Applied Real Estate Practices Interactive course will satisfy the 30-hour post-license education requirements for license renewal.

The 15-hour Broker Post-License Topics course is a self-guided course with quizzes to show student participation and proficiency.

As of January 1, 2018, online courses no longer require a “final exam” if the course includes interactive quizzes and Student ID is verified during the course.
