Online Education



CORE course online

The Core Course is a six-hour continuing education course covering federal, state and common laws relating to real estate as well as recent license law updates that impact your license renewal and real estate practice. This course is required every four (4) years by all Kentucky licensees. Taking six hours of law and/or regular continuing education classes or a pre-license course will not substitute for this requirement. Please refer to the KREC website if you have further questions about this requirement or when it is due. This course also provides six (6) hours of law continuing education credit.
