This is a two-day, 15-hour course. It is Pennsylvania State Real Estate Commission authorized for 1 credit towards broker's license requirements. Depending on Commission requirements issued during any renewal cycle, it has the potential to fulfill up to 14 hours of mandatory continuing education for salesperson's or broker's license renewal, except for first time continuing education students. During the 2018-2020 renewal cycle, when all licensees are required to take a 3-1/2-hour Commission-mandated course, the ABR course will yield 10-1/2 hours of continuing education for veteran licensees.
