Continuing Education

The New Jersey Real Estate Commission┬ámandates that all real estate licensees complete 12 continuing education credits every two years to maintain their licenses. The 2019 Term is July 1, 2017 – April 30, 2019. CE may be completed for the 2019 Term until June 30, 2019, but will be subject to a $200 late fee in addition to the license renewal fee. Any licensee who does not complete their credits by June 30, 2019, will lose their license and is subject to the 2021 Term and any fees associated with reinstating a license.
