How To Renew Your Arizona Real Estate License

The Arizona Department of Real Estate requires real estate salespersons who hold a 4-year license must take 48 hours of continuing education credits. The first 24 hours of Arizona real estate classes must be completed within 24 months (a "CE period") of the license issue date, and the second set of 24 hours must be completed in the 24 months prior to the license expiration date. If the salesperson has an original 2 year Arizona real estate license, then the 24 hours of credits must be completed within the 2 years of the license issue date.

For example, if your Arizona real estate four-year salesperson license was issued on June 1, 2006, you need to complete 24 hours of CE credits between June 1 2006 and June 1 2008, and another set of 24 credits between June 1 2008 and June 1 2010.

The Arizona department of real estate requires licensees to take a total of 24 hours of credit in the following subjects:

  • Agency Law - 3 hours
  • Contract Law - 3 hours
  • Commissioner's Standards - 3 hours
  • Disclosure - 3 hours
  • Fair Housing - 3 hours
  • General Real Estate - 6 hours
  • Real Estate Legal Issues - 3 hours

Besides requiring licensees to complete 24 hours of credits every 24 months, the Arizona DRE restricts the number of hours per day a licensee can test on. To make sure all practicing real estate agents obtain a thorough education, the ADRE states that only 9 hours of CE credit hours can be taken on any calendar day (Commissioner's Rule R4-28-402(C)).

The ADRE has an online licensing and renewal system, which allows salespersons to submit their continuing education information directly to the department. You will be asked to enter the dates and course numbers from the Course Completion certificates.
