appears on your license), your license number (not the NAR member number), and
your residence address. Refer to the “KREC-Approved
PLE Provider Lists.”
Q: Who is required to take Post-License Education (PLE)?
A: New sales associate licensees that have received and
activated their real estate license after January 1, 2016. If you have received
your sales associate license prior to January 1, 2016, you are not required to
complete PLE. New broker licensees are not required to complete PLE. Sales
associate licensees who receive their license through the license recognition
process are also required to take PLE.
Q: What if I immediately place my new sales associate license
into escrow, do I have to take PLE?
A: Not until you activate your license from escrow. The 2 year deadline
for the PLE requirements begins to run once a new sales associate licensee
affiliates with a principal broker. So, if you immediately place your license
into escrow status you are not required to start completing your PLE requirements.
IMPORTANT: Once you affiliate your new sales associate license with a
principal broker, your 2 year clock to complete the 48 hour requirement begins
to run and cannot be paused or stopped if you decide to go into escrow after
having been affiliated with a principal broker. You will need to complete these
requirements even while in escrow or risk license cancellation.
Q: What happens if I do not complete my 48 hours of PLE by the
end of my 2 year deadline?
A: Your license will be cancelled.
Q: If my license is cancelled due to failure to complete my PLE
requirements on time, what can I do to reinstate my license?
A: You must first complete all of your PLE requirements before
you will be able to reinstate your license. You will also be required to pay
any and all required licensing fees and meet any applicable licensing
