Continuing Education and Audit Information



How to Request Continuing Education (CE) Approval

To submit a request for a CE course approval, you must use the DELPROS online portal for Service Requests. Go to the Service Request webpage and follow the instructions on how to submit the Service Request.

  • It is important to have all of your course documentation available as you must upload the information in the Service Request application.

 

Continuing Education Requirement

The content and amount of continuing education (CE) that you are required to complete depends on when your license was issued and whether you are a Broker/Associate Broker or a Salesperson. This page summarizes the requirements. However, for complete information on the CE requirements, see Section 13.0 of the Commission’s Rules and Regulations.


Required Hours for First Renewal

Use this chart to determine how much CE you must complete for your first renewal as a Broker, Associate Broker or Salesperson in Delaware.

  • This chart applies to your first renewal as a Broker or Associate Broker even when you were previously a Delaware-licensed Salesperson.
  • This chart does not apply to your first renewal as a Broker or Associate Broker when you changed broker type (that is, from Broker to Associate Broker or vice versa) during the previous two years. In this situation, the amount of required CE is the same as if you had not changed from one broker type to the other.

If this is your first renewal, and you hold a:

BROKER, ASSOCIATE BROKER, SALESPERSON LICENSE
IF you are issued the license… THEN you must complete…
On or after 5/1 even years but before 11/1 even years 18 hours
On or after 11/1 even years but before 5/1 odd years 12 hours
On or after 5/1 odd years but before 11/1 odd years 6 hours
On or after 11/1 odd years but before 1/1 even years 0 hours
On or after 1/1 even years but before 5/1 even years 21 hours

To find the issue date of your license, see Search & Verify Professional License in DELPROS, the online professional licensure system.


Required Content for First Renewal

If you are a newly-licensed Broker or Associate Broker or if you are a Salesperson licensed by reciprocity, the content of your CE must be based on the required Module Course Contents.

If you are a newly-licensed Salesperson who was not previously licensed in another jurisdiction, the content of your CE must meet the following requirements:

  • You must complete the four Newly-Licensed Salesperson Modules, totaling 12 CE hours, within the first 12 months after your license is issued. These 12 hours will be applied to the required amount of CE hours based on the chart above.
  • If your CE requirement is 21 hours based on the chart above, you must complete core modules 1, 5, and 6 listed in Module Course Contents.These three modules are in addition to the required four Newly-Licensed Salesperson Modules that you must complete in your first 12 months of licensure.
  • If your CE requirement is 18 hours based on the chart above, you must complete any two of core modules 1, 5 or 6 listed in Module Course Contents. These two modules are in addition to the required four Newly-Licensed Salesperson Modules that you must complete in your first 12 months of licensure.
  • If your CE requirement is 12 or 6 hours based on the chart above, you will meet your CE requirement by completing Newly-Licensed Salesperson Modules.


Subsequent Renewal Periods

Active Real Estate Professionals (Broker, Associate Broker, Salesperson) must complete 21 hours of approved CE during each full licensure renewal periods between May 1 and April 30 even-numbered years (2016-2018, 2018-2020, etc.).
