State requirements for continuing education are set according to state laws and are administered by state real estate commissions. Here is a look at the requirements in Ohio and Pennsylvania:
Ohio Real Estate CE Requirements
Ohio requires 30 hours of continuing education completed every three years by the licensee’s birthday. The first continuing education deadline for a new licensee is three years after their first birthday following licensure.
The 30 hours must include nine hours in three separate mandatory core courses (Canons of ethics, core law, and civil rights. The other 21 hours are electives.
Pennsylvania Real Estate CE Requirements
Real estate licensees in Pennsylvania must complete 14 hours of continuing education credits by May 31 of every even-numbered year. New licensees who obtained a license within six months of the renewal date are exempt from the requirement for that first renewal cycle.
For the 2020-2022 renewal cycle, a minimum of 3.5 hours of the required 14 hours of continuing education must be taken on these topics: redlining, steering, implicit bias, diversity, and the Fair Housing Act. The work must be completed between Aug. 30, 2020, and May 31, 2022, to meet the requirement.
