30-Hour Post Licensing Education

2014 April Post Licensing Class Schedule Here

VPAR presents the new REQUIRED 30-HOUR POST LICENSING COURSES which all agents licensed on or after July 1, 2008 must complete the 30 hours within their first year of licensure, as a condition of renewal.

New salespersons may complete the eight courses (30 hours) here at VPAR.  We provide all the credits needed by the 1st anniversary of licensure.

The new PLE curriculum consists of eight courses, approved for a specific number of hours as follows:

2 hrs. Fair Housing
3 hrs. Escrow Management
3 hrs. Ethics
8 hrs. Real Estate Law
3 hrs. Agency
6 hrs. Contracts
3 hrs. Risk Management
2 hrs. Current Industry Trends

VPAR only provides the Single-Track System for PLE Credits. 

1. New Real Estate Salespersons initially licensed by the Virginia Real Estate Board (the Board) on or after July 1, 2008, must complete the 30-hour Post License Education Curriculum within one year of obtaining this Salesperson license. If a New Salesperson fails to complete this 30-hour post license education requirement within one year of initial licensure, then the Board will automatically place his/her license on "Inactive" status. A licensee cannot practice real estate in Virginia with an Inactive license. A New Salesperson licensee can activate an Inactive license only by: 1) Completing the 30-hour post license education requirement; and 2) Filling out and submitting an “Activate/Transfer Application” form with a $60 fee to the Board.

2. The Virginia Salesperson License is valid for two years, this includes New Salespersons. Although New Salespersons licensed on or after July 1, 2008, must complete their post license education within one year of initial licensure, they will not receive any credit from the Board for any Continuing Education courses they complete before their first two-year licensure term ends. Some New Salesperson licensees may be inclined to think that since they completed their 30-hour post license education requirement, they can then immediately get started on completing the 16-hour continuing education hours that will be required of them during their second two-year licensure term. This is not so. New Salespersons must wait until their first two-year licensure term ends, then they can begin to take Continuing Education courses. This is addressed by 18 VAC 135-20-101 of the Real Estate Board's Regulations (Qualifications for Renewal; Continuing Education Requirements), which states: "All active salespersons... shall be required to complete a total of 16 instruction hours DURING EACH LICENSING TERM." The licensee must complete the Continuing Education hours DURING the LICENSING TERM, not BEFORE the LICENSING TERM begins.
