All active salespersons not subject to Salesperson Annual Education (SAE) requirements are required to complete MCE for an active license renewal. The MCE requirement is 18 hours in CE, which must include 4 hours in Legal Update I and 4 hours in Legal Update II, within the term of each license. A licensee cannot obtain credit for a course that was not approved for MCE at the time the course was conducted. A course may not be repeated for credit during the same license period. Providers are allowed 10 days to submit proof of course taken.
A broker or a designated broker of a business entity, who sponsor one or more sales agents during their current license period or a delegated supervisor of one or more license holders for a period of six months or more during the supervisors current license period, must also attend a 6 hour Continuing Education (CE) Broker Responsibility course.
- 6 hour Broker Responsibility Course
- 4 hour Legal Update I Course
- 4 hour Legal Update II Course; and
- 4 hours in an approved CE course(s) – Course credit will not be given for attendance at the same course more than once during the term of the current license.
MCE course providers are responsible for notifying TREC when a licensee has completed an MCE course. However, if you are seeking MCE elective credit for the following types of courses, you must forward your documentation to TREC:
- Core real estate course
- Out of state continuing education course
- A course approved by the State Bar of Texas for MCLE participatory credit
A salesperson that completes a core real estate course to satisfy MCE requirements, must file the course completion certificate with TREC.
Texas licensees who hold a license in another state and have completed continuing education to renew the out of state license may have those courses evaluated for MCE elective credit. An MCE Credit Request for an Out of State Course form and the course completion certificate, should be submitted to request such credit.
Salespersons who complete real estate courses of at least 1 hour in length which are approved by the State Bar of Texas for MCLE participatory credit, can apply to TREC for elective credit for those courses. An MCE Credit Request for State Bar Courses form and the course completion documentation should be submitted to request such credit.
If the renewal fee is paid and a license is renewed in an active status the required MCE hours must be completed during the term of the license. If not, the licensee will be subject to a $200 deferral fee. If the fee is not paid and the hours not completed within 60 days of the expiration date of the license being renewed, the license will be placed on inactive status during which time a licensee must cease doing business. To return to active status a licensee must complete the required MCE hours; pay the deferral fee of $200 and a $250 penalty (total $450); as well as submit a Salesperson Sponsorship Form and $20 fee.
A requirement set forth by the Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC) states that there must be a 24-hour waiting period between the time of the beginning of the course before we are able to report the online continuing education credits as complete.
Please understand that the day and time you start your online class may require at least 24 hours before we are able to process your successful completion of the course. Please take this waiting period into consideration when choosing to start your course, especially if you are extremely close to your expiration date.
Our goal is to provide you with the highest quality continuing education courses, while maintaining a high level of simplicity. Our course format is structured in a way that is very easy to follow and very easy to understand. If you have any questions please feel free to Contact Us.

As a result of using your program, I recently passed the state and national exams for my Salesperson license on the very first try! I was pleased to refer another young lady to your program at an orientation at the local board of realtors yesterday.
She is awaiting approval to take her test and is petrified. I assured her that your program works! - J. Carter
