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

All South Carolina real estate licensees must complete 8 hours of continuing education once every two years, prior to midnight on June 30th. Of the eight hours, at least four hours must be the mandatory core course, and the remaining four 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 8 hours of continuing education.

While the license law changed effective 1/1/17, the Real Estate Commission has chosen to delay implementation of the changes in the continuing education requirements until the 2018 renewal cycle. AT THAT TIME, licensees who renew in 2018 and beyond will have to complete ten (10) hours of continuing education every two years. 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.
