In addition to providing you with training on Pennsylvania-based rules and regulations adopted by the state to govern activity within the real estate industry, the mandatory topics for this renewal cycle (between 2023 – 2024) must also address marketing, advertising, essential supervision, property management, and closed disciplinary cases that were adjudicated before the Real Estate Commission. These topics are addressed in the course titled PA Rules and Regulations.

  • Total Hours: 14
  • Mandatory/Core: 14
  • Post-License: 0

Licensees who are renewing their license for the first time are required to complete a specific 14-hour first-time renewal course. The first 7 hours of the required course are applicable to all first time licensed practitioners (general). The other 7 hours of the required course are to be either residential or commercial modules. Licensees are permitted to choose which module best reflects their practices. (PLEASE NOTE: We do not offer first-time renewal courses or modules).

Receiving Credit for Completed Courses

Pennsylvania is an audit state, meaning neither licensees nor education schools send notice of course completions to the Department of Licensing; instead, the DOL requires that licensees can provide proof of course completions in the event they are audited.

NOTE: Each time you complete a course on the CBT website, you will receive a courtesy email to validate notice of your completion.

After you've completed all your courses, navigate to the Pennsylvania Licensing System (PALS) website to renew your license:
