Let’s Get It Straight…
Real Estate Institute wants to make sure that you clearly understand that Post–License Education and Continuing Education are two completely different requirements.
Brokers renewing their license for the first time need to fulfill the 30-hour Post-License requirement. All other Brokers need to do the 12 hours of Continuing Education.
The Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) will not give credit to any licensee who enrolls in the wrong course. Post-License credit will not be accepted as Continuing Education credit and vice-versa.
In order to qualify to renew your Broker license, the appropriate course must be successfully completed, and the IDFPR must process your renewal application PRIOR to April 30, 2014. We highly recommend that you start your required education NOW. Once your education is complete, submit your renewal application and fee to the IDFPR. (The IDFPR renewal window opens in just a few weeks.) Procrastinating will severely affect the status of your license and your ability to practice real estate.
If you are still confused, call Real Estate Institute immediately at 800-995-1700. Our friendly and knowledgeable customer service representatives are compliance experts. They will assist you and make sure that you are enrolled in the appropriate course.
