Michigan Continuing Education Requirements

Michigan real estate licensees are required to complete 18 hours of continuing education in every 3-year renewal cycle. This includes an annual mandatory minimum of 2 hours in the area of real estate law, rules, and court cases (legal topics) each year.

Beginning November 1, 2018, all continuing education courses that count towards licensee renewal requirements must be certified by CE Marketplace. CE Marketplace provides a basic tracking service, free of charge, to assist you in finding certified course content and keeping a list of your CE Marketplace certified credit history.
