Before this date, currently licensed salespersons will need to complete a twenty-four (24) hour course in order to upgrade their license to a broker license. This course will serve as the required continuing education for these salesperson licensees for the period beginning on July 1, 2012 and ending June 30, 2014. Salespersons who complete the course will also need to apply for a broker license, and submit proof of completing the course along with the appropriate fees and forms.
