Real Estate License Law Full Text

NYSDOS Educational Requirements

All licensees are required to successfully complete 22.5 hours of approved continuing education within the two-year period immediately preceding a renewal, including at least 3 hours of instruction pertaining to fair housing and/or discrimination in the sale or rental of real property or an interest of real property, and at least one hour of instruction pertaining to the law of agency except in the case of the initial two-year licensing term for real estate salespersons, two hours of agency related instruction

A salesperson who successfully completes an approved broker qualifying course (which requires passing the final exam), within their current licensing period, will receive continuing education credit for completion of that course. Please note: The broker course does not satisfy the mandatory 3 hour fair housing requirement.
