If you're a licensed real estate salesperson or broker in Massachusetts, it's important to stay up-to-date on the latest industry trends, laws, and regulations. That's where continuing education comes in. 

In this article, we'll discuss what you need to know about the continuing education requirements for real estate salespersons and brokers in Massachusetts.
1. What are the Real Estate Continuing Education Requirements in MA?
In Massachusetts, licensed real estate salespersons and brokers are required to complete 12 hours of continuing education every two years. The courses are 2 hours long each, meaning you have to complete six courses per cycle.

This education must be completed before your license renewal date, which falls on your birthday every other year.

How can you check when your real estate license expires in MA? Look it up on the state's website here by name or license number: Check a Commonwealth License. 
2. What Topics are Covered in the Massachusetts CE Courses?
Continuing education classes cover a range of topics that are relevant to the real estate industry. These may include changes to state and federal laws, updates to real estate regulations, and new industry trends and practices. 

Additionally, there may be specific classes available on topics such as commercial real estate continuing education, marketing, negotiation, and property management.
3. How Can You Complete Continuing Education Classes in MA?
There are a variety of ways to complete your continuing education classes in Massachusetts. Many real estate schools and organizations offer in-person classes, which can be a great way to network with other professionals in the industry. 

Additionally, there are many online courses available, which can be completed at your own pace and from the comfort of your own home.

4. How Do You Renew Your Real Estate License in Massachusetts?
Once you have completed your 12 hours of continuing education, you will need to submit a renewal application online at the Massachusetts Division of Professional Licensure website. You will also need to pay a renewal fee, which is currently $103 for salespersons and $142 for brokers.

A 2023 change requires that you now provide the course numbers for the Massachusetts real estate CE classes you completed so be sure to keep your records of completion handy.
