Missouri Continuing Education Requirements

Each real estate licensee who holds an active license shall complete during the two (2)-year license period prior to renewal a minimum of twelve (12) hours of real estate instruction approved for continuing education credit by the Missouri Real Estate Commission.

At least three (3) of the twelve (12) hours of approved instruction shall be taken in a course approved by the Missouri Real Estate Commission as core credit.

The renewal for the 2024-2026 license period will require an approved CORE course on Fair Housing. As you know, Missouri regulations currently require 12 hours of continuing education, of which at least 3 hours must be a CORE course. Therefore, if a licensee only takes one CORE course for the next renewal period (2024-2026), it must be a Fair Housing course. The licensee can, however, take all 12 hours comprised of CORE courses if they choose to do so.
