South Dakota State Requirement Details for New Broker Associate Real Estate Post-Licensing Education

Hours Required by the State: 60 hours

For the first two licensing periods after initial licensure, new Broker Associates need to complete a total of 60 hours of post-licensing education; 30 hours in each of the first two licensing periods.

Course Completions: Students must participate in each course for the number of hours of credit awarded and daily course segments cannot exceed 8 hours per day.


The CE Shop’s Offering: 60 hours

Post-Licensing Final Exams: Final exams must be passed with a minimum of 80% and may be taken as many times as necessary in order to pass. 

Reporting: The state requires schools to report course completions within ten days from the course completion date.

Expiration Date of Course: Course expiration dates vary by course but are generally one year after order date. Each course has an individual expiration date which is listed in your account.

Certificates: Once The CE Shop has received the signed affidavit, your certificate of course completion will become available to download (and via email).  The CE Shop will provide students with an electronic certificate of completion, upon completion of the course. Certificates will remain in your account for a minimum of five years, should you need additional copies. Please refer to your license application to determine if you need to submit your certificate of completion with your license request. Course completion dates are recorded using Central Standard Time. Please note that the date of your certificate of completion will reflect this.

License Renewal Process: The process to renew in this state is to submit your paper work via mail.

Renewal Interruptions: Licensees who wait until the last minute of their renewal year to complete their education may not receive their new license in time to remain on active status. If it is your year to renew, renewal forms MUST be in the SD REC office by November 30th of that year.

Repeating Courses: Education hours that are used to activate a license may not be used again to renew a license.
