How many hours of continuing education do I need and how often must I complete it?

All South Carolina real estate licensees must complete 10 hours of continuing education once every two years, prior to midnight on June 30th. Of the ten hours, at least four hours must be the mandatory core course, and the remaining may by any LLR - Real Estate Commission approved elective you choose. All of our continuing education courses are approved by the Real Estate Commission and count for your required 10 hours of continuing education.

Those licensees who hold a Broker In Charge license will need four core hours, four BIC-specific hours and two elective hours. All other real estate licensees will need four core and six elective hours.
