How to Renew Your Real Estate License: Oregon Inactive Broker Activating a License (2015)

If you have renewed an active license at least once and completed a Advanced Practices course: 

If your license is currently inactive, but you completed the Advanced Real Estate Practices course and renewed your license on active status at least once, these are the steps to take to reactivate your license:

  • Complete our FREE (limited time offer)  3-hour Law and Rule Required Course;
  • If your license has been inactive for more than two consecutive years, take and pass the Broker Reactivation Examination;
  • Reactivate your license at the Oregon Real Estate Agency’s  eLicense site and pay the appropriate fee; and
  • Get your principal broker to log in to eLicense to associate/transfer you to the real estate business. You cannot be licensed until this step is completed.


If you have never renewed an active license and never completed Advanced Real Estate Practices: 

  1. You obtained your very first broker license after June 30, 2002, it has been inactive the entire time and you have renewed an inactive license at least once; or
  2. You held an Oregon real estate license, but let it expire or otherwise lapse. You became re-licensed as a broker after June 30, 2002 by meeting the current licensing requirements, but have had an inactive license since then. You have renewed your inactive license at least once.

To reactivate your license, you must: 

  • Complete our 27-hour Broker Advanced Practices course (BAP)and our FREE (limited time offer) 3-hour Law and Rule Required Course (LARRC)If you completed the Advanced Real Estate Practices course between January 1, 2011 and December 31, 2012, it contained Broker Advanced Practices and the Law and Rule Required Course. Courses must be completed in the two years prior to reactivation;
  • If your license has been inactive for more than two consecutive years, take and pass the Broker Reactivation Examination. OnlineEd offers an optional 27-hour continuing education course as a refresher course to help you prepare for this reactivation exam. This is not an exam prep, rather is continuing education made from topics that are likely to appear on the reactivation exam;
  • Reactivate your license at the Oregon Real Estate Agency’s  eLicense site and pay the appropriate fee; and
  • Get your principal broker to log in to eLicense to associate/transfer you to the real estate business. You cannot be licensed until this step is completed.

Will My Oregon Real Estate CE Count In Washington?

(Jeff Sorg, OnlineEd) – The only Oregon real estate continuing education course that counts for both Oregon and Washington continuing education for license renewal is Broker Advanced Practices. The OnlineEd 27-hour Oregon Broker Advanced Practices course is presently accepted by both the Washington Real Estate Commission  and Oregon Real Estate Agency for real estate continuing education credit.

Washington real estate licensees will need to inform the Washington Real Estate Commission of their intention to use the Oregon BAP course for CE and will need to provide their Oregon certificate for credit. Although Washington accepts this course, it is accepted as an Oregon course and OnlineEd cannot prepare a Washington specific certificate.

22% of Oregon Real Estate Licensees Fail Continuing Education Audit

(Jeff Sorg, OnlineEd) – The Oregon Real Estate Agency has released the results of its first continuing education audit, performed November 2013. A staggering 22% of the licensees audited failed because of fraudulent or altered certificates, courses completed from non-agency-certified continuing education providers, or not enough hours. Only 55% of the licensees met the agency’s audit requirements and appeared to be in compliance with all requirements for license renewal. The remaining 23% of licensees did not meet the audit requirements because of late or missing documentation. To renew a license without meeting the agency’s continuing education requirements is a violation of Oregon real estate license law and may result in administrative action against the licensee.

Oregon Real Estate Commissioner, Gene Bentley, suggests these key takeaway points from the results of this first audit:

  • Don’t renew your license until you have completed your required education;
  • Make sure your email and mailing addresses are up to date with the Agency to avoid missing important notifications;
  • Take your continuing education from Agency-certified providers;
  • Keep your certificates of attendance and Continuing Education Record form for three years after your license renewal; and
  • Don’t fraudulently produce or otherwise modify a continuing education certificate.

4 Oregon Real Estate Education Changes For 2013

(OnlineEd – Portland, OR) -Effective January 1, 2013 the Oregon Real Estate Agency implemented the following changes to real estate broker pre-licensing education, principal broker licensing education, property manager education, and real estate broker advanced practices education:

  1. Real Estate Broker Pre-License: Pre-license qualifying education courses taken after January 1, 2013 must have received a new approval from the Oregon Real Estate Agency. The OnlineEd® Oregon Real Estate Broker Pre-License Course is already compliant with these new rules and approved by the Oregon Real Estate Agency and the Association of Real Estate License Law Officials (ARELLO) to meet the 2013 requirements. Pre-license qualifying education is available from the OnlineEd® pre-license course catalog. Other changes recently implemented require the license candidate to make license application and pay the application fee in advance of being able to schedule a state licensing examination. The exam proctor is also responsible for fingerprinting and background check applications, which are completed during the applicant’s examination appointment. All fees paid to the exam proctor and OREA are nonrefundable.
  2. Property Manager Advanced Practices: All property managers must take the 27-hour Property Manager Advanced Practices course prior to the first active renewal of their license.  The OnlineEd® Property Manager Advanced Practices course is already compliant with the 2013 rule and approved by the Oregon Real Estate Agency. The course is found in our continuing education catalog.
  3. Real Estate Broker Advanced Practices: All real estate brokers must take the 27-hour Broker Advanced Practices course prior to the first active renewal of their license. The OnlineEd® Broker Advanced Practices course is compliant with the 2013 rule and approved by the Oregon Real Estate Agency. Broker Advanced Practices is found in our continuing education catalog. Law and Rule Required Course (“LARRC”) cannot be included in either Advance Practices course. Because licensees need 30 hours of approved education to renew, a LARRC course is still required. OnlineEd® offers LARRC free with both of the Advanced Practices courses.
  4. Principal Broker Qualifying Education, Brokerage Administration and Sales Supervision: Brokers who want to become a Principal Broker must complete a 40-hour Oregon Real Estate Agency approved Brokerage Administration and Sales Supervision course. As of January 1, 2013, this course was greatly expanded and more difficult than its predecessor. There is also a new and longer licensing exam for principal broker licensing.  The OnlineEd® Brokerage Administration and Sales Supervision (BASS) course is compliant with the January 1, 2013 requirements and approved by the Oregon Real Estate Agency. To assist in passing the licensing exam, the course comes with an exam prep module. Brokerage Administration and Sales Supervision is available in our continuing education catalog.
