What is this Ethics requirement I keep hearing about?

The National Association of Realtors® has mandated that ALL Realtors® are required to complete Ethics training once during every 2 years cycle. **This includes any Licensee who is “grandfathered” through the KREC. For more info on this requirement, please go to https://www.nar.realtor/code-of-ethics/training


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) 429-7250 or visit http://www.krec.ky.gov/


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. 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, put your license in escrow, 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 were in escrow but came out, etc.

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.

What you need to know before coming to class:

The Kentucky Real Estate Commission (KREC) requires the following in order to receive CE credit:

  1. Your signature on the sign-in sheet. If you are taking a full-day class, you will also need to sign-in when returning from lunch.
  2. A completed evaluation, which includes both your legal name and Kentucky Real Estate License number. If you do not know your license number, you may find it by searching the KREC database at http://www.krec.ky.gov/.
