KREC Approved Broker Education:

Broker Licensing Requirements - extended the deadlines until the State of Emergency is concluded, plus forty-five (45) days. State of Emergency is lifting on January 15th, 2022 the new deadline will be March 1, 2022.

Licensees working towards their broker's license need to be aware that the Pre-licensing education (96) hours will no longer be counted as hours towards obtaining their broker's license. If a licensee is planning to use those hours, the licensee would need to obtain their brokers license by the time the state of emergency lifts, plus forty-five days. If they are not licensed yet, at that time and have already taken their PSI exam, the PSI exam results may become void, additional education required, as well as possibly having to submit a new background check.
