Nebraska Real Estate License Renewal Requirements

Nebraska Real Estate License Renewal Basics

Nebraska real estate Licensees are required to complete 18 clock hours of real estate continuing education every two years in order to renew a real estate license. 12 hours must be in continuing education activities approved by the Nebraska Real Estate Commission, of which 6 hours must be in designated subject matter.

Designated subject matter courses are indicated with the letter "R" in the four-digit course content number that is assigned to the course.

Real estate continuing education credit will not be granted when activities or content is duplicated within 4 years. However, "R" courses are an exception to this rule and may be duplicated in subsequent continuing education periods but NOT in the same continuing education period. The course content number is used to determine duplication of content between courses.

Broker - Approved Training Requirement

Nebraska real estate licensees who wish to maintain active licenses will need to complete 18 hours of education. Licensees may take up to 6 hours of Broker-Approved Training toward the 18 hour requirement every two years. VanEd offers online real estate continuing education courses and classes that may meet the Broker-Approved Training requirements. Verify the courses and outlines with your broker before registration.

You may substitute Continuing Education activities for all or part of the 6 hours allowed for Broker-Approved Training. [Please note: while continuing education activities will meet the Broker-Approved Training requirement the reverse is NOT true; Broker-Approved Training will NOT meet the real estate continuing education requirement.]

Duplication of Broker-approved Training Activities

Duplication of Broker-Approved Training activities is not prohibited but is subject to designated broker approval.
