Have you taken your CE courses for the 2022-2023 license year? Do you know which courses you need to take?
The CE deadline for all real estate licensees is June 10 and brokers must ensure they complete their annual continuing education requirements to maintain an active real estate license.
Rule 58A .1702 requires provisional brokers and non-BIC brokers to take the General Update course and one Commission-approved elective. BICs and BIC Eligible brokers must take the BICUP (Broker-in-Charge Update) course and one Commission-approved elective each year in order to maintain BIC Eligible status as well as an active license status.
If you are a BIC or BIC Eligible broker and you take the General Update course and an elective, you will maintain an active license but you will lose BIC Eligible status (and, in turn, BIC designation) on July 1st. Instead, if you are a BIC or BIC-eligible, be sure to take the BIC Update.
If a BIC loses their BIC designation because their license expires, goes inactive, or because they fail to complete the proper CE, all brokers affiliated with the BIC lose that affiliation and any affiliated provisional brokers will also go on inactive status. All brokers will then have to be reaffiliated after the BIC regains the BIC designation.
All brokers should log into their license record on the Commission’s website to check their license status before registering for a CE course. To access your license record:
After you log in, you will see the View/Update Information page. This page will show whether you currently hold BIC Eligible status. If you do, Yes will appear beside BIC Eligible status. If you do not currently hold the status, No will appear beside BIC Eligible status.

Brokers have the ability to take Update and elective courses in a variety of formats. Update courses are offered in person and via synchronous distance learning (aka, “live online” instruction using Zoom or similar technologies). Elective courses are also offered via distance courses (self-paced online courses). Update courses are not allowed to be offered as self-paced online courses.

Lastly, please ensure you complete the appropriate CE based upon your license status prior to June 10, to prevent having an inactive license on July 1 due to incomplete education.
