Our state-approved Pennsylvania Real Estate continuing education courses are held at Polley Associates locations statewide. Our instructors are knowledgeable, know how to entertain, and work in the business. Our courses are designed to help you understand important concepts in the business.

They also guide you through real-life problems and situations almost every licensee will encounter, and describe how to deal with them. That’s the kind of knowledge that makes you more valuable to your client

New licensees must take the New Agent/First Time Renewal Package for 14 hours. Licensees taking CE for the FIRST TIME must take the General Module (7 hours). New licensees can then choose between the Residential Module or the Commercial Module for their second 7-hour course.

All salespersons and brokers who are not in their first 2 years of continuing education cycle must take the 3.5-hour required topic 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.

Online Continuing Education

Our online continuing education courses cover pertinent information for real estate professionals. Every continuing education course Polley Associates offers is approved by the appropriate Real Estate Commission to ensure your license will be credited for the completed 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.
