How Many Credits do I Need to Renew my NH Real Estate License?

If you're a real estate agent who is licensed in the state of New Hampshire, you know the struggle of figuring out how many continuing educations units (CEUs) you need every two years in order to renew your license. While determining how many credits you still need can feel like this:

We aim to provide you with the below guide to make keeping tracks of your CEUs simple and renewing your license painless! Be sure to read the whole thing to see what applies to you. Here's what you need:


EVERY TWO YEARS:

  • One CORE class. This class must be 3 CEUs and must be approved with the NH Real Estate Commission. Check this website for a list of all approved classes. This is the only class you have to take if you're inactive. If you choose, you may take a second CORE class and it can count as an elective as long as it is with a different instructor.

  • 12 elective credits. These 12 credits can be a combination of any approved one, two or three hour CEU classes that you may have taken at your local board, at your office, at ours, etc.

  • You should have a minimum total of 15 credits every two years.


EVERY THREE YEARS:

  • One Code of Ethics class. This class must be approved for 3 CEUs in NH. This can count towards your 12 elective credits.

  • This class is only required if you are a REALTOR (R), or are a member of a local board.

  • This requirement went into effect on January 1, 2020. It used to be required every two years.


SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS FOR NEW AGENTS:

  • The 12 credit hours of post-licensing education for any agent who will renew their license for the FIRST TIME on or after January 21, 2022 must consist of approved classes from the following four REQUIRED topics:

  1. P & S Contracts

  2. Ethical Behavior

  3. Disclosure Forms

  4. Agency

  • The 12 credit hours may also include one or more of approved classes in the following optional topics:

  1. Fair Housing

  2. New Construction

  3. Advertising

  4. Conflict & Dispute Resolution

  5. Negotiations

  6. Broker Agreements

  • Our goal is to provide eight options each year for you to take these classes!

  • We will label our Post-Licensing approved classes with a "PL" in our calendar. Each post-licensing course's number should also begin with a PL.
