2022 Connecticut Continuing Education Requirements

The Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection (CT DCP) requires that all licensees complete 12 hours of continuing education courses every even year to keep their licenses active.

Breakdown of the CT 12-hour continuing education requirements for 2022

  1. Salesperson and Broker licensees must complete two mandatory 3-hour courses which are:
  • CT Real Estate Law for Brokers & Salespersons
  • Understanding and Preventing Racial Bias in Real Estate
  1. Six hours of elective real estate continuing ed topics.

Note that all mandatory classes are to be taken in person or via live in-person or virtual (ie Zoom) while elective courses can be taken online (on-demand).

If you are unsure of the courses you need to take or you don’t know where to find accredited courses, you can visit our fully-approved online real estate school, keepmecertified.com.

CT Continuing education exemptions

The state of Connecticut does not exempt anyone (including referral agents) from the continuing ed requirements. Licensees are only exempt if they passed the CT licensing exam during that CE period.  

Reciprocal license renewal requirements

Furthermore, if you have taken CE in your primary state, you can scan and email the information to dcp.realestate@ct.gov for assessment or fax to 860-706-1317. Each course must be a minimum of 3 hours and must have been taken during that Connecticut CE cycle. All Connecticut real estate licensees are required to complete the CT mandatory topics.

Continuing education certification

All continuing ed courses must be completed with a Connecticut-approved school. You also must retain a copy of your certificates of completion for a minimum of 4 years. At any time, you may be subject to an audit by DCP and your certificates may be requested at that time.

Visit the Connecticut Elicense Portal to renew your license once all of your credits have been completed.

Lastly, continuing education credits do not roll over to the following licensing term. In other words, you cannot carry forward additional credits you earn in one renewal period to the next. Also, you cannot receive credit for taking the same course more than once in the same renewal cycle.
