Every three years, all Michigan real estate licensees must renew their real estate licenses and also comply with the license renewal requirements. One of the license renewal requirements is completion of all required real estate continuing education hours. Even though most licensees are supposed to complete 18 hours of continuing education before renewing their real estate licenses, it is possible to actually renew a license without having the proper continuing education completed. As a result, LARA performs a continuing education audit to ensure that all licensees are in full compliance.
The reason for this is that under the LARA’s online renewal system, there is no requirement that a licensee provide actual proof of continuing education completion before renewing a license. Rather, each licensee must certify, by checking a box, that the renewing licensee is current on all of their continuing education. Either due to a mistake, misunderstanding, or other reasons, some licensees may check the box certifying that their continuing education has been completed even though that is actually not the case. LARA’s con ed audit is meant to confirm compliance with the continuing education requirements and ensure the certification was accurate.
