|Do I need to take SAE or CE to renew my license?|
As a licensed agent or broker in Texas, you are required to take additional courses to renew your license every two years. There are two types of renewal courses you must be aware of: Sales Agent Apprentice Education (SAE) and Continuing Education (CE).
If you are a licensed Sales Agent and are renewing your license for the very first time, you must complete 98-hours of SAE by the end of your second year of licensure. This includes 8-hours of Legal Update credit and three (3) 30-hour elective courses.
If this is NOT your first renewal, you must complete 18-hours of CE credit every two years. Of these 18-hours, 8-hours must consist of Legal Update credit.

Champions will electronically report all Real Estate CE courses under 30-hours on the student's behalf.

|If I have a criminal record, am I eligible to receive a Texas Real Estate License?|
All license applicants are subject to a criminal background check before receiving application approval from the Texas Real Estate Commission. If you have any criminal offenses, unpaid judgements, disciplinary action taken against a professional license, or have performed unlicensed activity in the past, you should consider filing a "Moral Character Determination" form with TREC before purchasing courses or applying for a license. TREC will use this form to determine whether your moral character meets their qualifications for honesty, trustworthiness, and integrity.
To learn more about this process and request a "Moral Character Determination" form, please visit TREC's website.
