2020-2022 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 2022 12-hour continuing education requirements
- Salesperson and Broker licensees must complete two mandatory 3-hour courses which are:
- Six hours of elective real estate continuing ed topics.
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.
The state allows licensees to renew their licenses by passing a 40-question Connecticut continuing education examination administered by PSI Exams. It is an online test that costs $65.
Important license renewal periods to note
April 1, 2020 – March 31, 2022: License renewal period for Connecticut broker licensees
June 1, 2020 – May 31, 2022: License renewal period for Connecticut salesperson licensees
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
If you completed courses with Keep Me Certified, you can login 24/7 to download fresh copies of the certificates you earned.

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.
