July 31, 2012, is the deadline for all Illinois Residential Leasing Agents to renew their licenses. Leasing Agents must complete an IDFPR-approved 6-credit-hour continuing education course before license renewal. The renewal occurs every two years (in even numbered years). However, if you were licensed during the current renewal period (first-time renewal), you are not required to complete continuing education but must complete the renewal application and submit the fee.
Once you have completed your CE requirement, active licensees must fill out a renewal application and pay the renewal fee. The state allows you to renew as follows:
- Online with a credit card
- By mail
Real Estate Institute has created a special six credit-hour course including topics specifically meaningful to residential leasing. The course is offered in a self-study format, allowing you to study at your own pace before taking the required exam near your home or office. Click here for more information. You can view the course book online and begin immediately. If you have questions about your renewal requirements, you may call the knowledgeable customer service representatives at Real Estate Institute at 800-995-1700 or call the IDFPR at 217-782-3414.
