North Dakota Requirement Details for Real Estate Continuing Education – Post-Licensing

Post-Licensing Due Date: Within one year of initial licensure

Post-Licensing Education Hours Required By The State: 15 hours

Effective 1/1/21: North Dakota will now require 90 hours of pre-licensing education and will no longer require post-licensing education. Licensee's that completed their 45 hours of pre-licensing education on/before 12/31/20, will still be required to complete 15 hours of post-licensing education within one year of initial licensure.

The CE Shop's Offering: 15 hours

Continuing Education and License Renewal Date: 11/15 each year

Reporting: Real estate course completions are reported to the North Dakota Real Estate Commission. The state requires schools to report course completions within five to seven days from the course completion date. This process does not take the place of licensees providing their Certificates of Completion to the state. It is the licensee's obligation to submit copies of their certificates to the Commission. 

Max Hours in 24-Hour Period: North Dakota Real Estate Licensees are not allowed to complete more than 8 hours of courses in a 24-hour period. Our online course delivery system manages this requirement for you.

Course Completion: A student must complete the distance education course within one year of the date of enrollment.

Final Exams: Final exams must be passed with at least a 75% and may be taken as many times as necessary in order to pass. 

Certificates: Upon completion of the course, The CE Shop will provide students with an electronic Certificate of Completion. Certificates will remain in your account for a minimum of five years, should you need additional copies. Please refer to your license renewal application to determine if you need to submit your Certificate of Completion with your license renewal request. Course completion dates are recorded using Central Standard Time. Please note that the date of your Certificate of Completion will reflect this.

Note: Any salesperson applicant, upon successful completion of the required postlicensing education requirement, is exempt from the continuing education requirement for only the continuing education period during which the salesperson applicant successfully completed the postlicensing education.
