CE Requirements

Salespersons and Brokers must meet a 12-hour continuing education requirement by their first renewal date and at each subsequent two-year renewal.

Of the 12 hours required for renewal, salespersons and brokers must complete at least 3 mandatory hours in the course titled “Kansas Required Core.”  A “Required Salesperson and Broker Core” completed in the current renewal cycle counts as the “Kansas Required Core”.

The “Kansas Required Core” course covers brokerage relationships and misrepresentation.

The “Broker Supervision and Common Violations” and “Common Violations: Identify and Avoid Mistakes” courses are elective and cover one, or a combination of, the following six topics:

  • Procedure Manuals
  • Trust Accounts
  • Management, including all facets of supervising a real estate company
  • Common violations of the license act and BRRETA
  • Commercial sales and leasing issues
  • Farm and ranch issues

Once you take a CE Course, retain your Certificate of Completion in a safe place!

Code of Ethics – NAR Membership Requirement

Code of Ethics is a membership requirement of the National Association of REALTORS®. It has no bearing on renewing or retaining a real estate license with the Kansas Real Estate Commission.

REALTORS® are required to complete a minimum of 2.5 hours of ethics training in two-year cycles. The current three-year cycle will end December 31, 2021.

Training may be completed through local REALTOR® associations or through another method such as home study, classroom courses, or online courses.

See KAR’s Education Offerings to fulfill your Code of Ethics requirements.

Commission Records

Each licensee’s record is updated from rosters supplied to the Kansas Real Estate Commission by the real estate school. The school is required to report the student’s attendance to the Commission within five days of the course completion date, or by the license renewal date, whichever is sooner.
