POSTLICENSE EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS
Salespersons must take a 25 hour Salespersons postlicense course in their first year of licensure. The course taken must be one specifically approved by the Commission. Failure to complete a postlicense course during the first year of being licensed will cause the license to lapse.

In any case, the applicant must pay the appropriate licensing fee. The salesperson postlicense educational requirements apply to a salesperson who goes on inactive status.
