Licensees intending to renew their license on an active status by the November 30 (even-numbered years) renewal deadline must complete 20 hours of approved continuing education courses during the biennium. The required continuing education hours include six (6) hours for the Real Estate Commission (REC)-designated core courses and fourteen (14) hours of elective credit hours.
For the 2019-2020 biennium, the Core Course is divided into two parts (Part A and Part B). Each part is, in turn, divided into two sections. The first section covers the legal updates for the current year and the second section covers one or more topics of current interest or importance to real estate licensees as determined by the REC.
For 2019, Part A is entitled Protect Your License. Part B is usually released sometime in the summer of the even-numbered year (i.e., 2020). Both parts may be taken either live in a classroom setting or online. For more information, contact the Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs’ Real Estate Branch at www.hawaii.gov/hirec.
