N.J. Admin. Code § 11:5-12.3 - Continuing education requirements

Current through Register Vol. 54, No. 7, April 4, 2022

(a) Unless granted a waiver pursuant to 11:5-12.5, commencing with the July 1, 2013 renewal and continuing for every renewal thereafter, in order to qualify for license renewal every individual licensed as a real estate broker and every licensed broker-salesperson or salesperson shall, during the 24-month period prior to that renewal, have completed 12 hours of approved continuing education as set forth in this subchapter, two hours of which shall have been on the topic of ethics, except that:
1. A Commission-licensed real estate instructor or Commission-approved continuing education course instructor shall earn credit for teaching an approved continuing education course offered by an approved provider. Notwithstanding the number of times the instructor teaches an approved course during a two-year license term, the instructor shall earn the number of continuing education credits granted to a licensee who attends and completes that course one time during that license term;
2. A person who successfully completes one or more broker pre-licensure education courses as set forth in 11:5-2.1 shall be deemed to have fulfilled the continuing education requirement applicable to the license that such person may seek to renew upon the conclusion of the license term during which the broker pre-licensure course was completed; and
3. A person who is initially licensed as a salesperson in the second year of a biennial license term shall not be required to fulfill any continuing education requirements in order to renew the salesperson's license upon the conclusion of that license term. A person who is initially licensed as a salesperson during the first year of a biennial license term shall complete all applicable continuing education requirements in order to renew the salesperson's license upon the conclusion of that license term.
(b) A licensee for whom a renewal application is timely submitted who completes the continuing education requirements between May 1 and June 30 of the second year in a biennial license term, and a licensee for whom a late renewal application as referenced in 45:15-15 is submitted who completes the continuing education requirements between May 1 of the second year of a biennial license term and the conclusion of the late renewal period, shall pay a processing fee of $ 200.00 in order to qualify for the renewal of his or her license. Renewing licensees who complete the continuing education requirements on or before April 30 of the second year of a biennial license term shall not be required to pay this processing fee.
(c) The successful completion of an approved continuing education course shall not be considered for continuing education credit more than once within a two-year license term.
(d) When applying to renew their licenses, licensees shall certify to the Commission, either directly or through their broker, that they have either complied with the continuing education requirement, were not required to do so for one of the reasons set forth in (a) above, or have received a waiver as set forth in 11:5-12.5.
