Pennsylvania Online (Self-paced classes) are PA state-approved courses you can start and complete at your own pace – you set the schedule! You’ll read slides, look at charts and graphs, watch videos of our own Polley instructors, and take quizzes throughout to check your learning progress. Access your classes from anywhere, on almost any device.

We recommend students choose a package to receive a discounted rate. Packages are approved for all 14 hours of PA Real Estate CE credit and meet all the mandatory requirements. We tailor the packages to make sure you’re taking the appropriate mandatory classes.

New agents who are taking PA real estate continuing education for the first time must complete the General Module and the Residential module. New agents will take the New Agent/First Time Renewal Package for 14 hours. All salespersons and brokers who are not in their first 2 years of continuing education cycle must take the 3.5-hour PA Required course due by May 31, 2024. If you are unsure of what you need, please reach out to us.

Students who are licensed in both PA & NJ and want to take CE classes approved in both states can review our dual-state options here.

Polley also offers two other types of class formats for continuing education.

Finished CE? You’ll need to renew your license. The Pennsylvania State Real Estate Commission e-mails renewal notices two to three months before the license expiration date. Notices are sent via e-mail to e-mail addresses registered on the PALS website. Need to change your e-mail address? Do it here.

Is Your PA License in Escrow? You’ll need to reactivate it. Your license may be “in escrow,” or temporarily inactive if you decided against renewing it or missed the renewal deadline. You can’t legally work in real estate sales unless your license is active. We recommend you partner with your broker to fill out the application together to make sure everything is filled out properly. Find the state’s instructions about reactivation here.
