Remedial (30 Hr) Licensing Course

30 Hour Remedial Course for Broker's & Salesperson's License

Effective July 1, 2008, a salesperson license applicant will be required to show proof of completing 75 hours of approved education. Applicants who completed the 45-hour salesperson course prior to July 1, 2008 may complete the additional 30-Hour Remedial Qualifying course to satisfy the 75-hour requirement.

The 30 hour remedial course is required for two types of licensure applicants (see below for more FAQs on the 30 hour remedial course): 

  • Individuals who have completed the “old” 45-hour salespersons course, and want a New York salesperson license, but have not completed the salesperson licensure requirements as of July 1, 2008, and;
  • Individuals who want a New York broker or associate broker license who have completed the “old” 45-hour salesperson course. 
  • Although the 30 hour course holds 19.5 hours of continuing education credits (must pass final exam to receive CE credit), it can only be used for the following applicants:

    • Individuals who have completed the 'old' 45-hour Real Estate Salespersons course and want a New York Real Estate Salesperson license but have not completed the salesperson licensure requirements as of July 1, 2008. 
    • Individuals who want a New York State Broker or Associate Broker license that have completed the 'old' 45-hour Real Estate Salesperson course (in addition to taking the 45 hour broker licensing course).

Who must take the 30-hour remedial course?

The new NYS salesperson 75-hour syllabus is required for all individuals who want to obtain a salesperson license in New York as of July 1, 2008. The remedial course is now required for two types of licensure applicants:   

  • Individuals who have completed the “old” 45-hour salespersons course, and want a New York salesperson license, but have not completed the salesperson licensure requirements as of July 1, 2008, and; 
  • Individuals who want a New York broker or associate broker license who have completed the “old” 45-hour salesperson course.  
  • Note that applicants who have completed the new 75-hour salesperson course (as of July 1, 2008) do not need to complete the remedial course.

How many hours of qualifying education are required for the New York broker license?

Under the new law, broker and associate broker applicants must complete 120 hours of qualifying education. 

  • Individuals who complete the new 75-hour salesperson licensing course must also complete the 45-hour broker course.
  • Individuals who have completed the “old” salesperson 45-hour licensing course must complete the 30-hour remedial course and the 45-hour broker licensing course.    
  • Applicants who have completed the old salesperson 45-hour licensing course and the 45-hour broker licensing course, before or after July 1, 2008, need only complete the 30-hour remedial course. This is because the broker course syllabus has not changed.

Yes. All applicants who complete the remedial course must pass a two-hour minimum 50-question classroom exam. The state exam for the salesperson and broker license will cover topics given in the remedial course.
