As of October 1, 2015 Maryland law requires all real estate licensees to complete 3.0 CE in Agency principles and disclosure as part of the 15 hours of education required for license renewal once every 2 years.
As of October 1, 2015 Maryland law also requires all brokers, branch office managers and team leaders to complete 3.0 CE in the requirements of Broker Supervision during every 2-year renewal cycle.
If licensed in another state, Maryland may recognize continuing education hours completed in another state toward your Maryland ELECTIVES. To find out, email the out-of-state CE course completion certificate(s) to firstname.lastname@example.org at least 30 days prior to the expiration of your license. If recognized, the hours credited will be entered into your licensing record and an eNotice sent to your email address of record.
Maryland's mandated courses are applicable only to Maryland State, Maryland local, or federal laws; not other states' laws.
