Reporting: Real Estate course completions are reported to the Ohio Department of Commerce each business day. This process does not take the place of licensees renewing their license or providing their certificates of completion to the state. It may take an average of 2-4 business days from the time we report your hours before the Commission updates your license and/or updates their website with the hours. Please be patient with this process and understand that it may vary depending on your state. Course completion(s) are reported on the designated and publicly posted scheduled days. Course completion(s) will be reported the following scheduled reporting day from the course completion date(s).  

In addition to completions reported by The CE Shop, licensees themselves are required to submit copies of their certificates with their renewal and compliance forms to the state. Forms and certificates sent into the state must be postmarked no later than midnight of your birthday/renewal date. 

Expiration date of course: Course expiration dates vary by course but are generally one year after order date. Each individual course will have an expiration date listed in your account.

Please Note: Ohio Department of Commerce approval for the below courses will be expiring on 12/31/2014. To ensure you receive contining education credit for these courses, please sign and complete the courses prior to the above date.

  • Basics of Real Estate Taxation
  • Foundations of Real Estate Finance

Post Licensing: 10 hours of required Post Licensing must be taken in a classroom setting. The CE Shop cannot offer Post Licensing in OH at this time.

Final Exams: Final exams must be passed with a 70% and may be taken as many times as necessary in order to pass. 

Certificates: Immediately upon real estate course completion, The CE Shop will provide students with an electronic copy of the course Certificate of Completion. Certificates will remain in your account for a minimum of six (6) years, should you need additional copies at a later time. Please refer to your renewal application to determine if you need to submit your Certificate(s) of Completion with your renewal. Course completion dates are recorded using Central Standard Time. Please note that the date on your certificates of completion will reflect this.

Please enter your individual license number correctly and fully when prompted in the registration process.
