Developed in Hawaii
Our courses are developed with local knowledge of Hawaii's real estate market. Our instructor, David Catanzaro, has taught and practiced real estate in Hawaii for over 20 years. Hawaii's culture and real estate market are unique. Don't risk your tuition money on a provider without feet-on-the-ground experience in Hawaii real estate. Real estate is a local business requiring knowledge of Hawaii and the way Hawaii works.
Licensees are required to complete 20 hours of approved continuing education (CE) courses every two years. The composition and number of hours is subject to change by the Real Estate Commission. This term the 20 hours consists of 6 hours of Core courses and 14 hours of electives. The deadline to renew a license on active status is November 30th (of even-numbered years). Unless renewed, all real estate licenses expire at the end of every even-numbered year. As of the time of this writing, new salespersons renewing their license (issued that year) will be exempted from the continuing education requirement.
Licensees must satisfy the continuing education (CE) requirement of the previous biennium in order to reactivate their license. Licensees who wish to reactivate a license need at least 20 credit hours of continuing education (core course + elective courses).
The previous biennium's core courses are available through May 31 of odd-numbered years. After May 31, licensees who have not completed the biennium's Core course(s) will need to complete 20 hours of continuing education elective courses. This is because the Core courses, by nature of their being legislation updates for that term, may be outdated by the next term and therefore, Core courses can only be used in the term in which they were designed; Core courses cannot be applied toward make-up for previous term.
