6. Complete the 30-Hour Post Licensing Course for New Licenses

New Indiana licensees are exempt from CE for the first 2 years from the day their license was issued. During that time, they are required to complete the 30-Hour Post Licensing Course for new licensees. NIRA offers this class in person a couple of times a year, or new licensees can complete the course online.

7. Begin your Continued Education

Once you have passed your first 2 years and completed your 30-Hour Post you will then begin your 12 hours of CE each year. Brokers are required to complete 12 hours of CE every year from July 1st to June 30th. NIRA offers CE classes on a regular basis. Make sure you check out our calendar page to see what’s coming up.
