License Requirement Checklist

The Vermont Real Estate Commission (VREC) has developed educational requirements for salespeople and brokers in the state of Vermont. Your real estate license must be renewed every two years. In addition, the National Association of Realtors® (NAR) requires that all Realtor® members complete the NAR Code of Ethics training every two years in order to maintain membership in NAR.

Following are the educational requirements developed by VREC and NAR.


SALESPERSONS LICENSE REQUIREMENTS
Renewal every two years (even years, renew by May 31). Salespeople need 16 hours of Vermont approved continuing education credits in order to renew.

NAR requires Realtors® to complete the NAR Code of Ethics class every two years beginning in 2017 (ie: Jan. 1, 2017-December 31, 2018)

REQUIRED: The Vermont Real Estate Commission requires its 4 hour Mandatory Course as part of the 16 hours. The VREC names this course THE MANDATORY COURSE and uses the renewal year to identify the course (example 2016-2018 Mandatory Course).

In addition to the above, Salespeople need 12 elective hours. These hours can be classroom or online as long as the courses are approved by the VREC. Click here for a list of approved courses.

REQUIRED: The National Association of Realtors® requires the NAR Code of Ethics every two years. This can be taken online or in classroom. To get VT CE and the NAR fulfillment, you need to be sure the class is approved by NAR and the VREC.  If approved by the VREC, the CE counts toward your 12 Elective hours of CE.
