Minnesota licensees: WRA real estate CE classroom courses are approved for three hours per course of Minnesota real estate CE credit. The specific Wisconsin/Minnesota On Demand courses will be submitted for three hours per course of Minnesota real estate CE credit. Per the Minnesota Department of Commerce, only eight credit hours of CE may be taken in a 24-hour period.
Minnesota licensees may only obtain credit once during the same licensing period for any particular CE course. This includes CE courses of the same title and biennium that may be released in a second, revised version during the same biennium. In this case, Minnesota licensees may not receive credit for both a pre-revision and post-revision version of the same course.
