Kentucky Mandatory Continuing Education & PLE Requirements
All licensees in active status are required to attend six (6) hours of continuing education courses, with three (3) hours being in real estate law. The courses must be sponsored or approved by the Kentucky Real Estate Commission (KREC). A licensee shall complete the mandatory continuing education requirement by December 31st of each calendar year. Additionally, Kentucky requires a state specific continuing education course (the Kentucky Core Course) to be completed by all active licensees subject to continuing education once every four years. Visit the KREC website for more information or check your education status through the Kentucky Real Estate Commission Database.
As of January 1, 2016, an individual obtaining their first, original Kentucky license is exempt for the first two (2) calendar years only, regardless of whether the license is issued in February or November. PLE is required during those two years.
Per Kentucky law, students are not allowed to complete more than 9 hours of Pre-Licensing and Post-Licensing coursework per day. It's the students responsibility to track their hours. Please contact KRI with any questions.
KRI offers online courses to complete your PLE requirements. You can find those options when you scroll to the list of courses. Please review the two links below for additional information:
