Under HB 149, passed in 2015, post-license education (PLE) became a requirement in Kentucky. Post-license education in Kentucky requires new sales associate licensees to complete forty-eight (48) hours of PLE courses within two (2) years of obtaining a real estate license.
The 48 hour PLE course curriculum consists of 32 mandatory hours and 16 elective hours. The mandatory hours must cover the following topics as listed below:
NUMBER OF HOURS
Commission Compliance course
Technology & Data Security
PLE courses are required to be real estate specific, to provide practical knowledge of the brokerage business; to protect the public interest and must be practicum based. Course topics that will meet both the 32 mandatory hours and the 16 elective hours are approved by KREC.
In order for a licensee to receive Post-License Education (PLE) credit for a course, the course must be approved by KREC for PLE credit.
