Continuing Education Requirements
Licensees are required to complete 20 hours of approved continuing education courses for each two-year license period (January 1 of odd-numbered years through December 31 of even-numbered years), also referred to as the licensing biennium.
Licensees intending to renew their license on an active status by the renewal deadline of November 30 (even-numbered years) must complete 20 hours of approved continuing education courses during the biennium. The required continuing education hours include the commission designated core courses, which are offered in a two-part format (Core A and Core B), and the remaining courses as elective credit hours. Visit the Hawaii Real Estate Commission website for more information about continuing education requirements.

Continuing Ed Express automatically submits course completion information to the Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs. Licensees will receive certificates marked “elective” for elective courses and “core” for core courses after they complete each course.
BEFORE you purchase a course, check your continuing education history on the Hawaii Online Real Estate Continuing Education website so you do not retake a CE course you have already completed. No CE credit for a course for which you have already received credit is given.
