Changes in Licensing Requirements for 2021

What are the Newly Adopted Continuing Education Requirements effective July 1, 2021?
All licensees with a license expiring on or after July 1, 2021 will be required to successfully complete 22.5 hours of approved continuing education.  The education must include at least 2.5 hours on the subject of ethical business practices, at least 1 hour of recent legal matters, at least 3 hours of instruction pertaining to fair housing and/or discrimination in the sale or rental of real property or an interest in real property and at least 1 hour of instruction pertaining to the law of agency except in the case of the initial two-year licensing term for real estate salespersons, 2 hours of agency related instruction must be completed within the two-year period immediately preceding a renewal. 

The amendment also REMOVES the 15-year real estate broker continuing education exemption and now requires all brokers with a license expiring on or after July 1, 2021 who are currently exempted to complete continuing education starting July 1, 2021.  For more information, go to the Department of State Licensing Services.


  • Attorneys admitted to the New York State bar remain exempted from the continuing education requirement.
