Reporting: Real estate course completions are reported to the Virginia Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation (DPOR) each business day. It will take a minimum of 2 business days from the time we report your hours before the Commission updates your license and/or updates their website with the hours. Please be patient with this process and understand that it may vary depending on your state. Course completion(s) are reported on the designated and publicly posted scheduled days. Course completion(s) will be reported the following scheduled reporting day from the course completion date(s).
Please enter your individual license number correctly and fully when prompted in the registration process to ensure the reporting of your hours takes place. Virginia license numbers should be ten (10) digits and usually start with 0225.
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.

*Important Notice: If any CE courses are taken while you are in the post-licensing renewal cycle the course completion will not count toward either your post-licensing or CE renewal requirement and cannot be reported.
Final Exams: Final exams must be passed with a 75% and may be taken as many times as necessary in order to pass.
Certificates: Immediately upon real estate course completion, The CE Shop will provide students with an electronic copy of the course Certificate of Completion.
