After you are licensed
When you first obtain your real estate license it will be issued on "provisional" status.
To remove this “provisional” status, you need to complete three 30-hour Postlicensing courses within three years of your license issue date.
You must take at least one 30-hour Postlicensing class each year to keep your license status active.
You can complete all three 30-hour Postlicensing classes within the first year if you choose to do so, but you can only take one course at a time.
