Are you a real estate licensee in Minnesota? If so, you need to be aware of the continuing education requirements that must be fulfilled before June 30 every year. These requirements are essential to keep your license active and stay ahead in the ever-evolving real estate industry.

Stay Updated with MN Department of Commerce (DOC) Regulations

The MN Department of Commerce mandates that real estate salespersons complete 30 hours of real estate continuing education (CE) before their June 30 license renewal deadline. However, it's important to note that at least 15 of those hours must be completed before the previous June 30. This means you need to plan your education accordingly to ensure you meet the deadline.

The Importance of Continuing Education

Continuing education is not just a regulatory obligation; it's also an opportunity for you to enhance your expertise and knowledge in the field. It allows you to stay on top of the latest trends, regulations, and best practices, giving you a competitive edge in the market. Embrace it as a chance for personal and professional growth.

Course Requirements: What You Need to Know

To fulfill your continuing education requirements, there are specific courses you must complete. These courses are designed to cover essential topics that every real estate licensee should be familiar with.

  • Agency Laws: You must complete at least one hour of "Agency Laws" as part of the 30 hours required for license renewal. This course explores the legal and ethical aspects of agency relationships, equipping you with the knowledge to navigate client interactions confidently.

  • Fair Housing: Another crucial course requirement is at least one hour of "Fair Housing." This course focuses on promoting equal and fair treatment in housing transactions, ensuring you understand your responsibilities in creating inclusive and non-discriminatory environments.

  • General Module Continuing Education Courses: As part of the 15 hours required each license year, you must complete a specific general module course. Currently, there are two modules:

    • 21/22 General Module: The History of Diversity in Homeownership: This module must be completed by June 30, 2022. It explores the historical context and significance of diversity in homeownership, providing insights into the evolving landscape of housing opportunities.

    • 22/23 General Module: Practical Application to Inclusive Representation: This module must be completed by June 30, 2023. It delves into the practical aspects of inclusive representation to help you better serve diverse clients and foster a sense of belonging within the real estate industry.

Your CE transcript summarizes the courses you have received credit for during the two-year licensing period.

If you find any missing credits, reach out to the education provider of the course to determine why they are not appearing on your transcript.
