Our real estate courses are authored in-house by experienced professionals and approved by the DRE.
Our California real estate license renewal program has been reviewed, approved, and authorized for real estate continuing education by the California Department of Real Estate (DRE). Our real estate continuing education courses are authored in-house by experienced real estate brokers and industry professionals.
Every California real estate continuing education course at OnlineEd is written by OnlineEd. Because of this, we save on overhead licensing costs. We can pass those savings on to you.

With our California real estate continuing education courses, you can pick and choose what you need or just grab everything in one convenient package.
California requires 45 hours of continuing education classes. We've made it simple for you. Just grab this package and you'll have everything you need, regardless of your license date or type:
Courses can also be taken individually following the DRE's requirements:
The 45-hour requirement must include 5 basic required courses, 18 hours of consumer protection, and the remainder on consumer protection courses.
Each separate course is 3 hours long:
Those renewing for the second or subsequent time may alternatively choose to take an Eight Hour Survey that covers the five basic subjects.
These may include:
The remaining hours must be spent on either the consumer protection courses such as those listed above or consumer service courses, such as Advanced Contract Law.
Once you have completed all 45 hours, you are ready to renew your license.
Use the information from completed course certificates to renew your license online or through the mail.
After completing each course you will receive a certificate of completion with a date and authentication number. From there, you can renew your California real estate license by using DRE's eLicensing system, or by mailing in your renewal application.
