We offer EIGHTEEN classes created by Dearborn/Kaplan.
You can expect to receive a certificate of completion which is automatically emailed to the South Dakota Real Estate Commission (SDREC), and you, upon completion of the course with an 80% score. Courses can be accessed for six months from date of purchase.
The classes which have been approved by the SDREC as CE and/or PL education are as follows. ONLY the REQUIRED 'R' hours count towards PL education. If the course has both ELECTIVE 'E' hours and REQUIRED ‘R’ hours, the entire course must be completed, but the PL student will only receive renewal credit for the number of required hours.
PL periods apply to the first two renewal cycles after obtaining your license, and those agents need 30 required hours. Leftover hours do not roll over into the next renewal cycle.
If you have already renewed your license twice, you need CE hours. You need 24 total hours with at least 12 of them being required. The other 12 can be required or elective.
These classes all work for renewal for Broker Associate and Broker licenses. If you have another license type please check with us to see if it works.
