On the chart below, one can see that 180 of those classroom hours in core real estate courses must be completed within 1yr of the Salespersons application filing date. Please note that this means only 6 additional semester (90 classroom) hours in core real estate courses are required to be filed during the term of the license as a licensed Salesperson. These hours are known as SAE, or Salesperson Apprentice Education.These 90 additional SAE classroom hours in core real estate for the SAE as well as the TREC Legal Update I & Legal Update II hours must be submitted and on the TREC system by the end of the second year of licensure.
