Attention Tennessee Students

Please check the courses in your package to ensure you're not repeating core courses taken in your license period. Take a moment to review your account before purchasing.

If you’re uncertain, contact our Customer Support team via phone, email, or chat, and we’d be happy to build you a custom package.

Tennessee has changed the process for checking your license status and CE. You must now register your license number with CE Broker, the official CE tracking system of the Tennessee Real Estate Commission.

Reporting: The state requires schools to report course completions within 10 days from the course completion date. Course completions will be reported within this time frame.

Expiration Date of Course: Course expiration dates vary by course but are generally one year after order date. Each individual course will have an expiration date listed in your account. 

Final Exams: Passing a final exam is not required to receive continuing education credit in Tennessee, therefore our system is set up so that final exams can be passed with a 0% passing score.

Certificates: Immediately upon real estate course completion, The CE Shop will provide students with an electronic copy of the course certificate of completion. Certificates will remain in your account for a minimum of five years, should you need additional copies at a later time. Please refer to your renewal application to determine if you need to submit your certificate(s) of completion with your renewal. Course completion dates are recorded using Central Standard Time. Please note that the date on your certificate of completion will reflect this.

License Renewal Process: The process to renew in this state is to log in to the licensing system online and follow the prompts to renew. 

Repeating Courses: The Tennessee Real Estate Commission only allows a licensee to complete one core course per licensing renewal cycle. If you complete more than one core course in the same renewal cycle, the system will not recognize the second core course and you will not receive any credit for the second core course.

Post-Licensing: Brokers are required to complete 120 hours of post-licensing during the first three years of licensure. These 120 hours can consist of any approved Continuing Education (CE) courses including the ones listed in our Tennessee catalog. Every course in our catalog, once complete, can be applied toward this requirement. 

Special Licenses: There is a special license issued in TN - Designated Agent for Vacation Lodging. This licensee must take CE, but The CE Shop cannot report the course on their behalf. Each licensee must send their certificate(s) directly to the state.
