What Classes have you taken?
Both states require 12 hours of CE (Continuing Education) every two years.
Both real estate commissions post on their websites the classes you have attended. You can look up your record. See the links below. (Please allow up to 1 week for recently attended classes to appear. You can renew online in the appropriate month at the real estate commissions once all your classes appear there.)
But I just got my license! Do I have to renew it already?
For Missouri, you are due at the same time as everyone else. But, if you got your license in August of a renewal year, you are probably waived until the next renewal date. Check with the Missouri Real Estate Commission to be certain. 1-573-751-2628. You may not need the CE hours, but you will have to pay the renewal fee.
For Kansas, if your regular renewal date is less than 6 months from the issuance date of your license, you can skip taking your CE hours until the next time your regular renewal dates comes up. But you will have to pay the renewal fee.Check with the Kansas Real Estate Commission to be certain. 1-785-296-3411.
At this link select "Helpful Links" and then "Check CEU Hours." You can renew your license online if all your hours are showing. Otherwise, print a renewal form from there and mail it with the latest copies of your course certificates.
About Kansas renewal:
Everyone renews at a different time in a two-year period depending on your last initial. When is yours? Scroll down to see our chart below. You need a three-hour course titled "Kansas Salesperson and Broker Core" - at KCRAR we refer to this on our calendar as "Core class." (Brokers also need the "Kansas Broker Required.) Salespeople, after the Core, need nine hours of elective classes and Brokers would need six hours. On this website read the course descriptions and you'll see if a class is mandatory (required) or if it is an elective. CE course completion and renewal of license are due by the last day of the month immediately preceding the license expiration date. See chart below. Renewals made in the expiration month are assessed $50 extra by the real estate commission.

Click here to see what classes you've taken for Missouri. There is a lot of information on their home page explaining how to check your hours and what to do if the classes don't appear. If your classes don't appear it's because at some point you marked a box opting out of your CE information being public. There is a form on your Detail Page that you can use to change that.
About Missouri renewal:
Everyone, regardless of license issue date, renews in even numbered years. You need 12 hours of CE dated after 10/1/2014. However, brokers can count hours taken after 7/1/2014. Whether broker or salesperson, you mus take the 3-hour Missouri required course which at KCRAR is referred to on our calendar as " Core Class," but the official name is "Missouri Core Curriculum: Agency and Brokerage Relationships" and you must also take nine hours of elective classes. Brokers renew in June 2016 and Salespersons renew in September 2016.
KCRAR CE Credit:
All our course descriptions explain if our courses are mandatory or elective. Some of our offerings are non-credit workshops that are not for CE credit, but are for "Get Smart" credit.
Code of Ethics training:
This is required in the four-year cycle between 01/01/2013 and 12/31/2016. This is a requirement of remaining a REALTOR® and has nothing to do with license renewal, but it's very important in maintaining your membership as a REALTOR®. Your “Education History” record at KCRAR.com will show if you have attended this. Make sure your completion date is within the dates of this current cycle.
