Important Note: A new law will start to affect your continuing education requirements on July 1, 2011. As part of the continuing education that is due each license year, you will have to complete a module training course. (This is part of the 15 hours that are due each year, not in addition to it). The course will be either 3.75 hours or 7.5 hours long and cover topics in real estate that are significant and are of current interest in the real estate market and profession. Brokers will also have the additional requirement to complete a module specifically designed to address issues relevant to brokers. Please note that commercial-only salespersons and brokers are exempt from these new module requirements. The Department of Commerce must publicize an outline of the topics covered by the module and the number of credit hours by April 1 each year.
NOTE: Credit may not be earned if the licensee has previously obtained credit for the same course as either a student or instructor during the same licensing period.
Seat time: All students must spend a minimum amount of seat time engaged in the course content. The course system will track your participation time as well as count down the minimum time required. Distance learning seat time is calculated in the same way as it is for classroom courses (50 minutes per clock hour). Your course will not be counted as completed until the minimum time requirement has been met.
Reporting: Real estate course completions are recorded with the Minnesota Department of Commerce each business day. It may take an average of 2-4 business days from the time we report your hours before the Commission updates your license and/or their website with the hours. Please be patient with this process and understand that it may vary depending on your state. Course completion(s) are reported on the designated and publicly posted scheduled days. Course completion(s) will be reported the following scheduled reporting day from the course completion date(s). PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ENTER IN YOUR MN REAL ESTATE LICENSE NUMBER AND LAST NAME CORRECTLY TO ENSURE YOUR COURSES ARE REPORTED ON TIME.
If you do not see your CE courses on MN Pulse Portal:
Max hours in 24 hr period: Minnesota Real Estate Licensees are not allowed to complete more than 8 hours of courses in a 24 hour period. It is up to the licensee to monitor this and ensure they are not completing more than 8 total hours in a 24 hour period. The date the course is electronically signed is the date the course is completed. For example, if your certificate says you completed a course for 6 hours of CE on June 1st, then you have taken 6 of your allowed 8 hours on June 1st regardless if you’ve taken part of the course on May 31st. Course completion dates are recorded using Central Standard Time. Please note that the date on your certificates of completion will reflect this. The CE Shop is unable to alter the completion dates on your certificates of completion.
Expiration date of course: Courses expire one year after the order date.
Post Licensing: Licensees are required to have at least 15 hours completed within the first year (12 months) of the license cycle.
Final Exams: Final exams must be passed with a 75% and may be taken as many times as necessary in order to pass. Per MN rules, licensees are not allowed to view the details of their final exam results.
Certificates: Immediately upon real estate course completion, The CE Shop will provide students with an electronic copy of the course Certificate of Completion. Certificates will remain in your account for a minimum of five (5) years, should you need additional copies at a later time. Please refer to your renewal application to determine if you need to submit your Certificate(s) of Completion with your renewal. Course completion dates are recorded using Central Standard Time. Please note that the date on your certificates of completion will reflect this. Minnesota approval numbers are on the certificates of completion that are received after the course has been completed.
