New mandatory education on Fair Housing Coming Soon

The DOL will allow Licensees until June 1, 2023, to take the Fair Housing 6-hour course. This provides a full year to sign up and complete the Washington Real Estate Fair Housing (6hr) course.

Receiving Credit for Completed Courses

Washington is an audit state, meaning neither licensees nor education schools send notice of course completions to the Department of Licensing; rather, the DOL requires that licensees are able to 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 Washington DOL website to renew your license:

Regulation of Online CE Courses

The Department of Licensing requires that online providers incorporate timers to help ensure that it takes the same amount of time to go through courses as the number of hours for which they are certified. For this reason we have incorporated a timing mechanism to ensure that a minimum seat time is spent in each course (equal to 50 minutes per credit hour). For example, a 3-hour course will be open and active for no less than 150 minutes. Final exams are not required for electives but are required on Core and therefore are in the Core course only.
