30 Hour Post License Requirement (15 + 15)

Course Description

The 30 Hour Post License requirement needs to be completed for your first renewal. Part 1 and Part 2 will count as your Continuing Education for that renewal.

If you were originally licensed between February 1, 2014 and January 31, 2016 you need to complete the 30-Hour Post Licensing Package by April 30, 2016.

If your 1st brokers license was issued by IDFPR between the dates of 2.1.14 & 4.30.14, with an expiration date of 4.30.16, do not take the 30 hour post licensing requirement during this renewal cycle (4.30.14) because it will not count as your renewal cycle begins 5.1.14 – 4.30.16.

If you need to look up the issue date of your license, please utilize this link, as it is the only place that gives you the issue date of your license.
