The SAE courses only need to be taken before your first two-year license renewal. After your first renewal, you’ll only need to complete 18 hours of continuing education courses (which must include 3 hours in contracts-related coursework, 4 hours in Legal Update I, 4 hours in Legal Update II, and the Broker Responsibility course if you have been made a supervisor by your broker.) every two years to renew your real estate license.
This Texas SAE course bundle includes 90 hours of coursework to help satisfy the 270 qualifying real estate course hours required to renew your Texas real estate license following your first two years in the industry.
The SAE courses included are:
You can submit proof of course completion to TREC via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Just make sure to submit your documentation 10 days before renewing your license.
