    Default Texas CE Requirements

    So, I've been trying to read the TREC website and I cannot seem to find the CE requirements for renewing a license in Texas. The rule book states we need to have the new 6 hours of ethics but I cannot find in black and white exactly what we need. The first paragraph states the 6 hours but the total # is not listed on the page.

    Now, I know that we need 16 hours per year. My question is: Since Texas gives you 2 years before renewal the first time around (I am on my second year) do I need 32 hours or since it is my first renewal do I only need the 16 hours each year from here on out??

    Any help would be great! Maybe a link to where it states it. I'm sure I'm overlooking it.

    Oh....and recommendations for where to take classes in the Central Texas also!

    Here is one answer for you since it was in front of me.This is also a company that teaches not only that course but more than enough every year to get the hours you need

    The answer to the question as to how many hours total is 32 hours every 2 years and 6 of those hours at the least have to be about the post from you. The rest are up to you.

    No, I am not a salesman for the courses. I have just taken classes through them in the past.

    Check out TPREIA, I have been a member since its inception and have received far more value in quality continuing education than the annual dues. They have free classes (for paid members) in varied locations around the state, Great bunch of folks also.
