North Dakota Requirement Detail for Real Estate Continuing Education

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

Hours Required By The State: 9 hours

  • 3 mandatory hours 
  • 6 elective hours

Note: The North Dakota Real Estate Commission has determined that the mandatory continuing education topic for the 2018 CE cycle which runs from November 16, 2017 to November 15, 2018 will be 3 hours on agency.  The CE Shop does not currently offer this course.

The CE Shop's Offering: 6 hours

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.

Expiration Date of Course: Course expiration dates vary by course but are generally one year after order date. Each course has an individual expiration date which is listed in your account.

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.
