But what about those folks who are newly licensed in the second or third year of the 3-year cycle? Do they still need all 18 hours to renew? If not, how many do they need? The good news is that the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs spells out the answer. In sum, a real estate broker, associate broker, or salesperson who receives a license issued in the second year of the 3-year license cycle is required to complete 12 hours of continuing education. And, a real estate broker, associate broker, or salesperson who receives a license issued in the third year of the 3-year license cycle is required to complete only 6 hours of continuing education. The requirements as far as content remain the same regardless of the licensing year.
Even if you did not take any continuing education courses in the first or second years of the current M Cycle (2013 and 2014), still be sure to complete all required 18 hours so you can renew your license with the State of Michigan in October, 2015.
