Utah State Requirement Detail for Real Estate New Agents Post-Licensing Education

Hours Required by the State: 18 hours

Course Completions: Students must participate in each course for the number of hours of credit awarded and daily course segments cannot exceed 8 hours in a 24-hour period.

Fingerprinting and Background Check Information: Beginning in January 2020, all renewals for real estate (both active and inactive licensees) will need to obtain a fingerprint background check and enroll in RAP Back. The cost for fingerprinting, processing, and enrolling in RAP Back will be $45.00. The Division of Real Estate has purchased a LiveScan fingerprinting machine that will be available for licensees beginning in January. After 03/15/20, due to Covid-19 public pandemic issues and general business shutdowns, the fingerprinting of existing licensees at the time of license renewal was temporarily suspended (postponed) and remains temporarily suspended. For current fingerprinting and license updates, go to (https://realestate.utah.gov).

Please refer to your license application to determine if you need to submit your certificate of completion with your license request. Course completion dates are recorded using Central Standard Time. Please note that the date of your certificate of completion will reflect this.
