The NJ REC added a new 1 credit/hour “Core” Fair Housing
course requirement for the current 2023-2025 cycle.
Please see the CE Requirements below for the most current information
All individual licensees (except Referral Agents aka SLWRERC or those licensed as Brokers for at least 40 years) must fulfill the Continuing Education (CE) Requirement.
Prior to the Renewal System opening, the REC website will be updated and notices will be mailed out to Brokers of Record and Individual Licensees confirming the details
I just got my license, am I required to take CE classes?Maybe! You should follow this link to find out more about CE credit for new licensees. UPDATE:Every individual licensed as a broker, broker-salesperson or salesperson must complete 12 hours of CE before April 30th of odd numbered years to renew a license or to reinstate an unrenewed license. In order to avoid the $200 processing fee, all CE credits must be completed by April 30th. Those who do not complete their CE requirement before then must pay the $200 "processing fee" as well as complete the 12 hours of classes before they can re-license. Don't wait until the last minute, take your CE training classes now.
The New Jersey Real Estate Commission (REC) requires ALL real estate licensees must meet the new Continuing Education (CE) requirement before April 30th in order to renew their license for the same year by June 30th odd numbered years when their licenses are set to expire or be renewed. You will not be able to renew your license unless an additional administrative fee of $200 is paid plus possible reinstatement, late charges, etc AND you will still need to take the classes before you could renew.
Note: All licensees must take CE classes except those who changed their license type to the new license category of "Referral Agent" aka SLWRERC - Salesperson Licensed with Real Estate Referral Company is the new name for the license. Yeah we know, it's a mouth full. SLWRERC are exempt from CE requirements to renew their licenses however they must be licensed not with a traditional licensed brokerage but the new brokerage licensed and registered as a "Referral Company". Real estate BROKERS licensed as such for at least 40 years are also exempt from the CE requirements to renew their licenses.
Double Check your license type if you are hanging it in a "referral agency" because if it is not a referral agent license then you will still need to take CE classes to meet the CE requirements for all other license categories required by NJ real estate license law.

CAUTION: Many courses out there are being offered claiming to give you all 12 required credits how may only be 12 elective credits, this will not meet your CE requirement. You need 6 Core topic credits of which 2 must be in ethics, at least 1 in fair housing, and the remaining 6 may be in core topics or electives. Taking 12 elective credits will not fulfill your CE licensing requirement so just be cautious of that. Also note the ethics course in most cases will not fulfill your NAR quadrennial ethics requirement, this is separate from the state required licensing CE approved courses in most cases unless the ethics class was also approved by your local realtor association.
