Continuing Education

All classes on this page are approved for CE for PA real estate licensees.

IMPORTANT UPDATE ON CONTINUING EDUCATION FOR THE 2016-18 RENEWAL

The Commission implemented a new policy requiring that all licensees take at least three hours of continuing education during the 2016-2018 renewal in topics related to commission rules and regulations.  RAMP’s education staff stayed on top of this new requirement and developed a 3.5 hour “Required Rules and Regulations” continuing education course, taught by top instructors well-versed in Regulation.  Select one of the classes and register today!  New agents or those in their first continuing education renewal cycle who are required to complete the mandatory new agent courses, are exempt from this requirement.

All licensees should have received an email from the Commission notifying them of this change. 



 

Read here to find out what classes "New Agents" need to take.


Agents who received their licenses after Dec. 1, 2015 or are taking continuing education for the FIRST TIME in Pennsylvania, are required to take 2 classes (a total of 14 hours) of continuing education in specific, mandatory commission-developed "New Agent" courses. 

1.)  Mandatory General Module (7 hours)
2.)  New Agent elective (7 hours)
    a.) New Agent Residential elective (7 hours)
                                   OR
    b.) New Agent Commercial elective (7 hours)

 These courses will be added to the schedule starting Fall, 2017. These licensees are exempt from the required 3 hours in Rules and Regulations.

Transcript Information
