If you have been made a supervisor by your broker for six months or more, you need to take the six-hour Broker Responsibility course to renew.

There are two options to knock out your SAE qualifying hours:

  • Enroll in ABoR's SAE Program. It's the most affordable way to meet your first license renewal requirement!
  • Take GRI Brokerage, Marketing: Business Skills, or Contracts to Close, part of the Graduate REALTOR® Institute designation, and earn qualifying SAE hours or all of your license renewal elective CE hours for that renewal period.

If you are a broker holding sales agent licenses or a sales agent that has been made a supervisor by your broker for six months or more, you are mandated to take six hours of Broker Responsibility as part of your 18 hour CE requirement.
