FAQS

Your license renewal period is a two-year period. You can take your education anytime during that period.

For each of the first two renewal cycles you need 30 hours of classes. The state calls these renewal periods post licensing (PLI and PLII). The classes are the same as the ones called continuing education (CE) however the only ones which count as PL credits have to be approved as ‘Required’. They can be any required courses you like.

You need 24 hours of continuing education (CE). Of the 24-hours at least 12 hours must be ‘Required’. The remaining 12 hours can be any combination of ‘Required’ or ‘Elective’

On the home page of the real estate commission website choose the Licensee log in button which takes you to the login page at this link:  https://sdrec.sd.gov/registration/login.aspx. Follow the instructions to sign in. Choose ‘View Education Summary’ then push ‘GO’ at bottom of list.
