Temporary rule 58G .0104, which has been effective since March 26, provides for automatic extensions of time for brokers to complete CE and Postlicensing education. Following are a few of the most frequently-asked questions regarding extensions.
What is the CE extension deadline?
Answer: September 30, 2020. The Commission is granting an automatic 90-day extension. No CE courses may be offered during the June 11-June 30 CE blackout period, so the 90-day extension period will begin on July 1, 2020, and end on September 30, 2020.
Can a broker take the 2019-20 Update course after June 10, 2020?
Answer: No. The 2019-20 GenUp and BICUP courses cannot be offered after June 10, 2020.
What if brokers do not take the 2019-20 Update course by June 10. How will they make it up?
Answer: Any broker who does not complete all 8 hours of CE by June 10 will be automatically granted a 90-day extension. The broker will then take approved elective courses [between July 1-September 30, 2020] to make up missed hours, even if those hours included the Update course.
What is the Postlicensing extension deadline?
Answer: September 30, 2020. PBs who have Postlicensing education deadlines between March 26-June 30, 2020, will be granted an automatic extension until September 30, 2020.
Should brokers renew their licenses even if they don’t complete CE or Postlicensing education?
Answer: Yes. Renewal requirements have not changed. A video that answers FAQs regarding renewal and provides step-by-step renewal instructions is posted in the Commission’s Video Library.
