In order to renew as active, Salesperson and Broker licensees who are not exempt from completing South Carolina Continuing Education (CE) must have completed ten (10) hours of CE. Four (4) of these hours must include the core course, and the additional six hours may be comprised of electives. (BIC licensees will need 8 mandatory hours including 4 hour BIC Duties and Responsibilities class and the 4 hour core course. BIC’s will only need 2 hours of electives.)
A regularly updated calendar of upcoming CE courses is available at the following link: http://llronline.com/POL/REC/recpdf/Doc151.pdf Remember that licenses which expire on June 30, 2022 and are not renewed before January 1, 2023 will be canceled by statute.
