Education

Grow your business and distinguish yourself in the market with a collection of member courses and designations built just for you, helping you to fulfill your Continuing Education Requirements each year. We invest in our members with locally hosted classes centered around professional development, MLS data compliance, and more.

All Licensees must complete 12 Hours of Continuing Education courses now through March 31, 2022 (Brokers), and May 31, 2022 (Salespersons).
Review the 2022 Real Estate Continuing Education Requirements for the current course guidance.
The 12 Hours shall consist of the following:
  • Two Mandatory 3 hour classes completed in a Live-Virtual or In-Person setting: 1) CT Real Estate Law for Brokers and Salespersons; 2) Understanding and Preventing Racial Bias in Real Estate.
  • 6 Hours of elective real estate continuing education courses.

Guidelines for earning CE (continuing education) hours for classroom courses:

  • Students must be present for the entire course – if a student arrives late or leaves early they will not be awarded CE credit.
  • Present valid photo ID at check-in for all CE courses.
  • Students must have paid for the course (if applicable).
  • Students must sign-in and sign-out on the provided sheets.

Guidelines for earning CE (continuing education) hours for virtual courses:

  • Students must be present with their cameras on for the entire course.
  • Present a valid photo ID at check-in for all courses.
  • Students must have paid for the course (if applicable).
  • A student will not be given attendance or CE credit for driving during any or all portions of a remote learning class.

GAR adheres to all educational standards and rules passed down from the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection, the regulating body for all licensed real estate professionals in Connecticut. All CE courses offered by GAR are approved by the CT DCP. More information can be found on portal.ct.gov.

The CT DCP requires all licensed salespersons to complete Continuing Education prior to every even-year renewal. 

As a reminder, agents may NOT repeat the same course with the same course within the same renewal period for credit. Please review your completed course certificates or contact GAR for confirmation to avoid duplicating a course.

We encourage you to register for a course at least one (1) day prior to the class date so we can prepare for your participation.

We understand that schedules change, and you may need to cancel a registration. Classes and paid events can be canceled and refunded up to 48 hours before the class / event.

A member cannot transfer their registration to another member for classes or events. You may, however, transfer to a future date the course is being offered (if applicable) at no additional charge, up until the start time for that class.

There are no refunds for no-shows.

If for any reason the class or event is canceled by GAR, you may receive a full refund or transfer to a new date it is being offered.

On-Demand Continuing Education classes are available to you via The CE Shop.
