Virginia CE Requirements

Virginia Elective Class Credits Through Reciprocity For Classroom Classes

Virtually all of the in-classroom Maryland courses we offer will be accepted by reciprocity for elective credits by the Virginia Real Estate Board. To receive credit for these classes send a notarized copy of your DC or Maryland license, as applicable, and a notarized copy of the DC or Maryland class certificates you received, with your VA renewal forms.

Please Note:

Legislative update and fair housing classes taken to satisfy the mandatory continuing education requirements for Maryland and DC real estate license may not be applied to your mandatory Virginia legislative update or fair housing requirement.

May I use DC Mandatory CE Credits as Electives In Maryland?
