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.

We are doing video streaming AND in-person classes for continuing education! It's only $85 for all ten hours, $45 for four hours or $25 for two hours. We will send everyone a link to join the video classes and to download the materials after they register.


NEW - licensees who renew this year must go through the fingerprinting and background check process!

It is very important that all licensees due to renew in 2021 follow the fingerprinting instructions carefully to insure that their background checks are properly performed, received and documented. IF YOU'RE NOT DUE TO RENEW THIS YEAR, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO GET THE FINGERPRINTS OR BACKGROUND CHECK. Beginning with 2021 renewals, active status Salespersons, Brokers, Brokers-in-Charge, Property Managers and Property Managers-in-Charge are required to be fingerprinted and have SLED and FBI background checks conducted every third renewal. While renewals will not begin until May 3rd, you may begin getting the background checks required for renewal now.

Inactive status Salesperson, Broker and Property Manager licensees, who are renewing as inactive in 2021, can renew without fingerprinting but will need to have their fingerprint-based background checks cleared prior to reactivation.

Active renewing licensees, who have failed to have their background checks cleared by the end of the 2021 renewal cycle, will be placed on inactive status and be unable to reactivate until cleared. Late renewals end December 31st, 2021.

Residents of South Carolina should register at their nearest IdentoGO location for digital fingerprinting at their earliest convenience in accordance with the instructions listed below.

TO SCHEDULE ONLINE, GO TO https://www.identogo.com/locations/south-carolina

Look for SC Real Estate Commission, ORI Number SC920127Z when registering. IdentoGO offers multiple enrollment centers throughout the state with those in metropolitan areas providing daily appointment availability, as well as offering host sessions in other locales once monthly or more. Enrollment centers with daily appointments are located in Greenville, Columbia, North Augusta, Rock Hill, Florence, Myrtle Beach and Mt. Pleasant. For all other areas, sessions are offered at least once per month and may be located, along with upcoming dates and availability, on the appointment scheduling website listed in the instructions linked below. If you are not located in a metro area with a center with daily operations, it is suggested that you review locations nearest to you in advance in order to plan accordingly to register for your appointment.

• All applicants must pre-register, either online or by contacting customer service, prior to being fingerprinted. Customers arriving at a center without a prior registration or appointment cannot be accommodated. Customers must also ensure they are in possession of required identification documents, as well as payment, if not prepaid at time of registration, in order to be processed. Cash is not accepted for payment. Please refer to your appointment confirmation for identification requirements and accepted forms of payment.

The Commission asks that you do not call or email staff to check on the status of your background check during the peak months of renewal May through June. IdentoGO cannot provide information as to the nature of your background check results or status of your licensure. If your fingerprints are rejected by SLED or the FBI, you will be notified by letter from IdentoGO and provided a number on the rejection letter, along with instructions on scheduling a reprint. After a second rejection letter, you may email the Commission providing the rejection numbers, and our staff will request a name-based search with SLED and the FBI. Please do not contact or obtain reports directly from SLED or the FBI, nor contact SLED directly concerning the status of your results.
