Detailed Course Descriptions

No, taking your CE is not enough to renew your license. To maintain your license, you must complete the required CE and renew your license with the Wisconsin DSPS every two years by December 14 of the even-numbered year. 
No. Renewing your license is a separate process from renewing your REALTOR® membership. You renew your license with the Wisconsin DSPS, a separate entity from your local REALTOR® association. The WRA cannot renew your real estate license for you.
Most new licensees need to complete CE. Newly licensed salespersons who receive a license after October 1 of the even year of the biennium are not required to complete CE for that biennium. However, all new broker licensees must complete CE. For full details, see Wis. Admin. Code § REEB 25: Education.
Yes, instead of six three-hour CE courses, the 2023-24 CE curriculum now comprises individual one-hour courses to meet the 18-hour credit requirement.
If your license is inactive and has been inactive for less than five years and you wish to renew your license, you must (1) complete the previous biennium of CE, (2) pay the license fee, and (3) pay the late fee. Licensees who do not have an active license cannot practice real estate per Wis. Stat. § 452.12(5)(b) until the license is renewed.
