NEW Changes regarding your

Florida Real Estate License Renewal 

 

On February 2, 2017, FREC (Florida Real Estate Commission) is now requiring 3 hours Ethics and Business Practices course to be included with our real estate license renewal starting October 1, 2017. 

Starting October 1, 2017 the renewal must include:

  • 3 hours Core Law course
  • 3 hours Ethics and Business Practices course
  • 8 hours of Specialty courses (which may include a 2nd Core Law course)

This change will impact the first cycle next year (March 31, 2018).

Here's a link to read more about the new FREC changes:

The National Board of Realtors has an ethics requirement, but  here in NC we can use that class as part of our 8-hour annual CE requirement.   Which reminds me ..

Dianne Goode I think the NAR Code of Ethics requirement we do every two years will satisfy this requirement, "if" it is taken during the licensee's renewal cycle. I was a good girl and did my CE requirement early this time!

Many states are adding Core hour requirements to the CE requirements for renewal. I thnk it is great and good for you sharing the message.
