License Renewal

Real Estate Licensing Requirements

The real estate license must be renewed annually through the Department of Consumer Protection (DCP). More information. Continuing Education (CE) is due on the even-numbered renewal years and must be completed prior to renewing your license in all even-numbered years. GHAR members can view your continuing education history (only classes taken through GHAR) by logging into GHAR's Member Portal.

Continuing Education Options:

A. Complete 12 hours of continuing education courses from an approved school. Only courses completed after March 31, 2020 for brokers, and May 31, 2020 for Salespersons will count toward the 2022 requirement (provided the courses were not already applied toward a previous year’s requirement). If you took the 2020 requirements late, you may NOT apply those courses again toward 2022. Click here to search the database of approved schools and courses.

The courses shall consist of the following:

  1. Two three-hour 2022 Mandatory CE Requirements:
    • CT Real Estate Law for Brokers and Salespersons
    • Understanding and Preventing Racial Bias in Real Estate
  2. Six hours of real estate elective courses.

 

OR

B. Pass the 40-question Connecticut Continuing Education Examination during the CE cycle. You can schedule a test date directly with the testing company, PSI. Call PSI to schedule the test date at 800-733-9267 or visit www.psiexams.com. When calling PSI to schedule your exam, be sure to specify that you want to take the “Connecticut Continuing Education 40-Question” exam in order to renew your CT license.

OR

C. Brokers – If you passed the CT Broker full licensing examination between 4/1/2020 – 3/31/2022, you do not need to take continuing education for 2022. (The date used to determine exemption is not the issuance date of your first license, it is the date you passed the CT licensing examination.)

D. Salespersons – If you passed the CT Salesperson full licensing examination between 6/1/2020 – 5/31/2022, you do not need to take continuing education for 2022. (The date used to determine exemption is not the issuance date of your first license, it is the date you passed the CT licensing examination.)

The Score Reports you received from PSI will reflect your examination passing date. If you do not know when you passed your examination, please call PSI at 800-733-9267.
