Continuing Education Courses

The Greater Louisville Association of REALTORS® is dedicated to providing quality continuing education for all of our members. Our goal is to ensure you not only receive your required Continuing Education hours, but increase the knowledge you need to improve your business.

Continuing Education

Requirements Overview: All active Kentucky licensees, who were originally licensed in Kentucky after June 19, 1976, are required to attend six (6) hours of continuing education courses approved by the Kentucky Real Estate Commission (KREC). Of the six hours, three (3) hours shall be in courses on real estate law. A licensee shall complete the mandatory continuing education requirement by December 31 of each calendar year.

Once every four years, Licensees are required to take the Kentucky Core. A licensee must take Core by the 4th calendar year of licensure. After you have taken the Core Course the first time, it is required every four years.  No other continuing education course will substitute for the Kentucky Core Course.

Licensees obtaining their first, original Kentucky license after January 1, 2016 are exempt from the CE requirement for the first two (2) calendar years only. However, these newly licensed sales associates are required to complete forty-eight (48) hours of post-license education (PLE) courses within two (2) years of obtaining a real estate license.

Additionally, REALTORS® are also required to fulfill an ethics requirement every 3 years. Ethics is a membership requirement, not a CE requirement.

If you would like to see your CE requirements for the year or your education history, you may find this information on the KREC database at
