Section 54.1-2105.01 of the Code of Virginia requires all active new salesperson licensees to complete a Board-approved 30-hour post-license education (PLE) curriculum within one year of obtaining their salesperson licenses in order to remain on active status. For example, if your salesperson license was issued on January 1, 2015, you must complete all 30 hours no later than December 31, 2015.
Failure to complete these 30 hours of PLE within one year of your license issue date will result in automatic placement of your license on inactive status.
*New Salespersons must complete the 30-hour Post-License Education requirement. They do not need to complete the 16-hour Continuing Education curriculum required of other salespersons.
Effective as of January 1, 2019:
Beginning January 1, 2019, the 30-hour PLE program will consist of NINE courses:
1.Fair Housing, ADA and Civil Rights (2 hours)
