How to Request Continuing Education (CE) Approval

Both licensees and CE course providers may request to have CE courses approved by the Board. You must use the DELPROS online portal to request approval of a CE course(s) that you either have taken or want to take (licensees) or want to provide to licensees (providers). For more information on how to submit a request, see the Real Estate Request A Service webpage.

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 14.0 of the Commission’s Rules and Regulations.

New Salesperson Education Requirements

The Delaware Real Estate Commission has implemented changes pertaining to new Salesperson licensees, effective May 1, 2022.

All newly licensed individuals, other than individuals licensed by reciprocity, must complete the following twelve hours of required new salesperson course modules within 90 days of the date of license issuance:

  • Three (3) hours in professional standards for new licensees.
  • Three (3) hours in agreement of sale and buyer representation for new licensees.
  • Three (3) hours in real estate documents and seller representation for new licensees.
  • Three (3) hours in real estate professionalism for new licensees.

These new salesperson course modules will be in addition to the continuing education required for licensure renewal and will be included in the continuing education audit. See Newly Licensed Salesperson Content for additional details.

See the Commission’s Rules and Regulations for additional information about these requirements.
