License Renewal & CE Hours

The Kansas and the Missouri Real Estate Commissions both require that all licensees earn 12 hours of Continuing Education (CE) credit every two years to renew their licenses.


Your license renewal date is 2 years from the month your license was issued (1st day of the month) if you obtained your license after 12/21/2018. If you obtained your license prior to that, your license renewal date is based on the first letter of your last name, as shown in the chart below. You can renew up to six weeks prior to your license expiration date.

You can check your CE credits on the KREC website. You can also renew your license online if all your necessary CE credits are shown there or are forthcoming. The system will process your pending renewal once all CE is recorded. If you’d rather renew offline, simply print a Renewal Application Form and email or fax it to KREC with the latest copies of your CE course certificates. 

If you’re a salesperson or broker, you’ll need to complete the three-hour “core” class called “Kansas Required Core,” plus an additional nine hours of elective CE credit. 


All Missouri licensees renew on even numbered years, regardless of license issue date. The time of year depends on your type of license.

You can check your CE credits on the MREC website. If your classes don’t appear on the Details page of your license history, you’ll need to contact MREC. You can renew online through MREC or by submitting your necessary documents on paper through mail.

Both brokers and salespersons must take twelve hours of continuing education. Licensees may take a combination of continuing education courses approved for Missouri Core or Elective credit; however, a minimum of 3 hours must be a course approved for Missouri Core Credit. The Missouri Real Estate Commission will require a CORE course on FAIR HOUSING for the 2024 renewal period.

If you obtained your license the month before your renewal date, MREC will likely waive the CE requirement until the next renewal date. You may not need the CE hours, but you must pay the renewal fee. To be certain, contact MREC.
