Why don’t all of the classes I have taken show in my Education History?
You will only see the classes you have taken here at GLAR in your Education history. To get information about your full history of classes taken, please call the KREC at 502-564-7760  or visit

How do I find out if I have met my education requirements?
The Kentucky Real Estate Commission (KREC) website gives each licensee their own personal portal to view their education requirements under their eServices Tab. After logging in, your KREC portal gives you the ability to view your education requirement tracking for your real estate license as well as apply for licenses, cancel your license, make your license inactive, and much more.  Newly licensed agents can now view the specific topic areas in which they’ve received PLE credit from this portal.

What if I have a special circumstance?

Sometimes people have special circumstances whether it is that they missed 3 hours last year, or they have medical issues, or they recently reactivated their license.

We will help you to the best of our ability, but if you have special circumstances we recommend that you call the Kentucky Real Estate Commission (KREC).  They are the final authority when it comes to your license and the requirements to keep it.
