Additional information 

CE exemption rule changes: All licensees are required to complete the 18 credit hours of CE, including for the biennium during which they were licensed. Thus, newly licensed individuals are not exempt from CE during the biennium they first receive their license. See Wis. Admin. Code § REEB 25: Education. However, one individual is exempt: a salesperson who receives a license after October 1 of the even year of the biennium is not required to complete CE for that biennium. Brokers do not receive any exemption.  

This requirement applies to the 2015-16 biennium and moving forward.

Minnesota licensees: WRA real estate 2017-18 CE classroom courses are approved for three hours per course of Minnesota real estate CE credit. Per the Minnesota Department of Commerce, only eight credit hours of CE may be taken in a 24-hour period.

Minnesota licensees may only obtain credit once during the same licensing period for any particular CE course. This includes CE courses of the same title and biennium that may be released in a second, revised version during the same biennium. In this case, Minnesota licensees may not receive credit for both a pre- and post-revision version of the same course. 

Inactive Wisconsin license: If your license is inactive and has been inactive for less than five years and you wish to renew your license, you must (1) complete the previous biennium of CE, (2) pay the license fee, and (3) pay the late fee. 

Appraisal CE credits: The real estate CE courses do not qualify as approved appraisal CE course credit.
