Course completion dates are recorded using Central Standard Time. Please note that the date of your Certificate of Completion will reflect this.

Additional Licensing Information:

License Renewal Process: The process to renew in this state is to log in to the licensing system online and follow the prompts to renew.

Repeating Courses: The Tennessee Real Estate Commission only allows a licensee to complete one core course per licensing renewal cycle. If you complete more than one core course in the same renewal cycle, the system will not recognize the second core course and you will not receive any credit for the second core course.

Post-Licensing: Brokers initially licensed after 01/01/2005 are required to complete 120 hours of Post-Licensing during the first three years of licensure. These 120 hours can consist of any approved Continuing Education (CE) courses including the ones listed in our Tennessee catalog. Every course in our catalog, once complete, can be applied toward this requirement. 

Special Licenses: There is a special license issued in TN - Designated Agent for Vacation Lodging. This licensee must take CE, but The CE Shop cannot report the course on their behalf. Each licensee must send their certificate(s) directly to the state.
