In accordance with T.C.A. § 62-13-303(g) & (h), all licensees, including non-resident licensees, are required to submit sixteen (16) hours of real estate education as a requisite for re-issuance of their real estate license.

T.C.A. § 62-13-303(g) states, 

Every two (2) years, as a requisite for the re-issuance of an affiliate brokers license originally issued on or after July 1, 1980, the affiliate broker shall furnish certification of satisfactory completion of sixteen (16) classroom hours in real estate courses at any school, college or university approved by the commission. 

T.C.A. § 62-13-303(h) states, in pertinent part, 

… Beginning with the license period immediately following the license period in which the licensee completes the one hundred twenty (120) hours of education specified in this subsection (h), the licensee of a broker’s license originally issued after January 1, 2005, every two (2) years shall furnish certification of satisfactory completion of sixteen (16) classroom hours in real estate courses at any school, college or university approved by the commission as a requisite for the re-issuance of the license. 

On June 14, 2017, the Commission voted to grant a waiver of the continuing education requirements in T.C.A. § 62-13-303(g) & (h) above, for non-resident licensees whose license is due for renewal prior to September 1, 2017.   Starting September 1, 2017, if a non-resident licensee does not submit satisfactory completion of sixteen (16) hours in real estate courses approved by the Commission, the licensee’s real estate license will not be renewed.  If you have any questions, please contact TREC staff at TREC.info@tn.gov.
