The Bureau of Professional Licensing (BPL) within the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) has informed all licensed real estate professionals that Public Act 246 of 2023 has amended the Michigan Occupational Code to require that all real estate professionals complete one hour of continuing education in each year of the license cycle concerning compliance with local, State or Federal fair housing law. The law is effective as of February 13, 2024, meaning those renewing their license after that date are required to comply with this new law.
More specifically and according to the new rule, when completing the 18 hours of continuing education courses during each three-year licensing cycle, a licensee must complete the following minimum number of hours of continuing education courses in each year of that license cycle:
Not less than 2 hours of courses that involve laws, rules, and court cases regarding real estate
Not less than 1 hour of courses that involve compliance with local, state, or federal fair housing laws
