CE Requirement Beginning January 1, 2021
Any licensee who did not complete the 15-hour CE requirement for license renewal or license activation prior to January 1, 2021 must take the NEW 3-hour Risk Management: Initial Contact to Accepted Offer course to renew or activate a license. This course must be taken even if the previous Level 1 and Level 2 Risk Management courses have been completed.

Virtual Education An Option During COVID-19 Pandemic
All approved courses, salesperson and broker prelicense, salesperson post license and all continuing education courses, can now be delivered through virtual platforms until June 30, 2021.

This approval of virtual delivery for classroom courses does not affect the availability of existing distance education courses. Those will remain options. You can check for approved courses at arec.alabama.gov.

Fingerprint Sites for New Applicants
Fingerprint sites may or may not be open. Those are beyond our control. However, our vendor, Gemalto, has assured us that they are instituting careful cleaning procedures and if sites must close, they will endeavor to open new ones. Consult their website at aps.gemalto.com. We advise temporary salesperson applicants, broker applicants, and reciprocal applicants who reside in Alabama to go ahead and send your completed application to the Commission office and then get your fingerprints when the site is open, and it is safe to do so.

Payments
Please be aware that if a payment needs to be made to the Commission, it can be made electronically at alabamainteractive.org/arecmenu/welcome.action.
