Continuing Education History Look-Up Now Available OnLine

Maryland Logo
The Maryland Real Estate Commission (MREC) recently announced that licensees are now able to check their personal continuing education (CED) credits on-line through the Commission's new education portal.

Licensees will need to use/create a personal password with their registration number to access their records. The records will list the type of credit, (i.e. Legal & Legislative, Fair Housing...), the number of hours the class has, the date the program was given and the school that the program was taken with. All schools, starting in January 2013, are required to up-load their student rosters to the Commission's site, which will populate the licensees personal record.

(Please note: MAR has only up-loaded classes since September 2012. MAR CED classes given prior to September 2012 are not listed on the Commission's site and licensees should keep their paper certificates for renewal verification.)

Just think, you will now be able to check on all your classes taken, regardless of the schools, at one location!
