CE Requirements: Annual Core Course

*Three annual core courses are needed to renew a license.

**All qualifying brokers and all property managers have an additional CE requirement. They must attend one NMREC meeting, rules hearing, or disciplinary hearing for at least three hours, or until the meeting or hearing ends or goes into executive session, whichever comes first, once in their 3-year licensing cycle. The number of CE credits received for attending is based on the length of the meeting and the amount attended. For instance, a meeting that lasts only one hour meets the requirement to attend but only offers 1 CE credit. A meeting that lasts for two hours meets the requirement to attend and offers 2 CE Credits. Continuing education hours granted for each meeting/hearing will be determined by the NMREC.

All licensees can use a maximum of 4 CE hours from these meetings toward their license renewal, whether they are required to attend a meeting/hearing or not. MESA Real Estate Institute LLC offers replays of NMREC meetings on a bi-monthly basis. See our complete schedule of courses.
