TREC License Requirements

The Tennessee Real Estate Commission (TREC) continuing education requirements for real estate licensees:

Affiliate Brokers

Affiliate Brokers licensed before July 1, 1980 are exempted by TREC from mandatory continuing education. 

Affiliate Brokers licensed on or after July 1, 1980 are required to complete continuing education in order to renew their license.  The TREC Core course and electives equaling 16 hours must be taken in order to renew a 2-year Affiliate Broker license no later than the date of license expiration.

Real Estate Brokers

Real Estate Brokers licensed on or after January 1, 2001, must complete 120 hours of approved continuing education within three years of issuance of the broker’s license (regardless of hours accrued before the broker’s license was obtained.)

There is no continuing education requirement for brokers licensed before January 1, 2005, once the 120 hour post-broker education requirement has been met.

Brokers licensed on or after January 1, 2005 must complete continuing education including the TREC Core Course and electives equaling 16 hours during the first full two-year licensing period after the three years allotted to complete the 120 hours of post-broker education and all licensing periods thereafter.

To verify your education for license renewal go to or contact the Tennessee Real Estate Commission at 615-741-2273 or 800-342-4031.
