Continuing Education

IMPORTANT UPDATE ON CONTINUING EDUCATION FOR THE 2020 REAL ESTATE LICENSE RENEWAL

The Commission implemented a new policy requiring that all licensees take at least 1.5 hours of continuing education during the June 1, 2018- May 31,2020 renewal cycle in topics related to property management and 2 hours on the topic of advertising.  RAMP’s education staff is on top of this new requirement and our 3.5 hour mandatory continuing education course is taught by top instructors who are field experts.  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.



 

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


 

1.    New agents who received their real estate license after December 1, 2017 and experienced agents who are taking continuing education for the first time in Pennsylvania (first-timers) are required to take 14 hours of continuing education in specific, mandatory Commission-developed courses.  


2.    All new agents and first-timers must take the New Agent General Module (7 hours) plus their choice of either the New Agent Residential (7 hours) or the New Agent Commercial electives (7 hours). 

3.    Licensees who take the “new agent” courses are exempt from the Commission’s mandatory topic requirement.

 

Transcript Information

NOTE: The Real Estate Commission does not require students to submit education transcripts at the time of applying for license renewal. You do not need a transcript to renew your license.  If you want a copy for your records, there is a $10 charge.

In the event the Commission randomly select you for a compliance audit, you may be asked to furnish transcripts to verify the affidavit you signed on your renewal application swearing that you had completed 14 hours of approved classes.  If you require a transcript during the audit process, please email us at dawnp@realtorspgh.com.  One free transcript will be emailed to you for your audit.
