Continuing Education Requirements
How do I track my education?
There is no single entity that keeps track of all the education you have taken. It is ultimately your responsibility. Please stay organized, keep paper or virtual copies of certificates, and use the Realtor® Education Tracking Sheet to track this information.
It is important that you keep a file during each of your 3-year licensing periods of your certificates. This ensures that if you are audited by DORA you’re not scrambling to remember what you took over the 3-year cycle. Note: For classes hosted by the Vail Board of Realtors® we make copies of your CE certificates in case you misplace them. This is not the case for third-party classes.
What are my Education Requirements?
You are required to complete 24 hours of Continuing Education (CE) within each of your 3-year licensing periods. Classes are available at the VBR, other boards and online. You are not required to submit proof of classes when you renew your license, but should you be audited by the commission you will need to submit all your certificates.
12 of the 24 credit hours will be the CREC Annual Update Class that you are required to complete every year. You may choose any electives you wish for the remaining 12 hours as long as they count toward CE credit. Electives include your NAR Ethics requirement.
All Colorado Licensed Brokers are required to take this course every calendar year. The commission, also known as the Division of Regulatory Agencies (DORA), provides an updated version of this class every January. VBR will schedule CREC Annual Update classes at least four times a year to help Realtors® meet this requirement. You can also take this course online or at another board.
What have I taken with the VBR?
You can easily find a list of your past attended classes and events, and also see your future class and event registrations. Log into your Member Hub account and look for "Events and Classes." The link below walks you through the steps to do this.
Other Important Information
To provide our members with everything they need to maintain the high quality of their license, the Vail Board of Realtors® hosts continuing education classes to meet those needs. All classes, unless noted otherwise, are held at the Board’s Riverwalk offices, 0275 Main Street, Suite G004, Edwards, CO 81632.
Registration for classes is highly recommended as a minimum number of students are required for each class. VBR strives to provide quality instructors to ensure memorable learning experiences. Payment in full is required prior to entering the classroom. All cancellations require a 24-hour notice or registration fees are forfeited.
