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 an out-of-state provider. Real estate is a local business requiring knowledge of Hawaii and the way Hawaii works.

License Renewal
Licensees are required to complete 20 hours of approved continuing education (CE) courses every two years consisting of 6 hours of core and 14 hours of electives. The deadline to renew a license on active status is November 30th (even-numbered years). Unless renewed, all real estate licenses expire at the end of every even-numbered year. 
New salespersons renewing their license (issued that year) will be exempted from the continuing education requirement. 

License Reactivation
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 10 credit hours of continuing education (core course + elective courses). 
The previous biennium's core course is 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 10 hours of continuing education elective courses.
