MAAR has been made aware that the Mississippi Real Estate Commission (MREC) issued a change to their continuing education (CE) requirements for non-resident licensees.
Beginning July 1, 2022, all non-resident Mississippi licensees who received their license based on a reciprocal agreement between MREC and the Tennessee Real Estate Commission (TREC) will be required to complete 16 hours of MREC-approved CE to renew their licenses. This change will be effective for all July 31, 2022 renewals. The only exception is if a licensee has been a Mississippi licensee for 25 years and is 70 years old or more.
This means that if you have taken any continuing education at MAAR that was sent to MREC on your behalf this calendar year, and you have a renewal date after June 30, 2022, those hours will not count towards your license renewal with MREC.
The MAAR Education Foundation is in the process of seeking CE approval for our courses. If and when approved by MREC, MAAR members dually licensed in Tennessee & Mississippi can continue to take classes at MAAR and receive CE credit with both TREC and MREC.
If you have any questions about the change or how it may affect you, please contact MAAR Education Director O'Hara Keszler.
