The Importance of Post-License Education

Completing your 45-hour post-license education is essential to maintaining an active Illinois real estate license. It also helps new brokers expand on foundational knowledge and build confidence to thrive as self-sufficient brokers and operate with more autonomy.

  • Adhere to all IDFPR education requirements for your first renewal.
  • Review the intricate issues that emerge during real estate transactions.
  • Confidently manage risks and understand ethical boundaries.
  • Gain insights into advanced principles, strategies, and best practices.

Here's what our students are saying...


Will the Real Estate Institute report my credit to the IDFPR upon completing my course(s)?

Yes. Real Estate Institute reports all successful course completions to the appropriate regulatory authority. We report electronically (when permitted) to ensure timely and accurate reporting.

How do I know if this is my first license renewal period?

To verify whether you're in your first license renewal period, you can do either of the following:

  • Visit the IDFPR website, search for your license, and check the "Original Issue Date."
  • Contact our customer service team at 800-995-1700 for assistance. We'll help you interpret your state licensing record and clarify your post-license education needs.

Do I need to complete a Sexual Harassment Prevention course in addition to the 45 hours of post-license education?

No. The required one (1) hour of Sexual Harassment Prevention training is included in our 45 hour post-license program.
