Professional Development is generally classified as any training or education that doesn’t qualify for Continuing Education credit through the Oregon Real Estate Agency (OREA) but is still a valuable skill or asset to have as a real estate professional, business owner, or sales person. Continuing Education courses are defined as classes that meet the OREA standards for CE and thus can be used to fulfill your licensing requirements.
We at OAR offer many professional development courses to continually build upon your knowledge base as sales and management real estate professionals. These can include leadership courses, tech seminars, motivational speakers, designations, etc.
The Oregon Real Estate Agency mandates that all real estate licensees must take a minimum total of 30 continuing education (CE) hours, per renewal period. This includes a 3 hour Law & Rule Required Course. Read the OREA CE Brochure.
OAR offers CE throughout the year in various locations across the State. Check out the calendar for current courses.

- All licensees are required to maintain their own CE records. You must maintain this Continuing Education Record Form and keep all certificates of attendance for three years after a renewal period.
