About Continuing Education
In any industry, continued education is critical for professionals to stay ahead of the game in order to provide the best possible service to his/her clients. Real estate is no exception; in fact, in almost every way the industry is in constant flux.
Real estate agents face a fast-changing market, which requires keeping up to date on a combination of financial, legal, ethical and marketing skills. Particularly in this market environment, a real estate professional cannot have enough professional education.
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts requires that real estate licensees complete at least twelve (12) hours of continued education every two (2) years. However, many Realtors® attribute their success to career-building continued education courses that go beyond the state minimum requirements.
To see the statute that governs continued education for real estate brokers and salespersons, click on M.G.L. c. 112 §87XX1/2.
For additional licensing and continuing education requirements, click on the Division of Professional Licensure, Board of Registration of Real Estate Brokers & Salespersons.
