Credit hours and license law education requirements

Georgia licensees renew their license every four years and can do so up to 120 days (4 months) prior to the actual renewal period end date. The renewal period end date is the last day of their birthday month every four years.

Effective July 1, 2016 – License Law Education Requirement

The License Law Education requirement is effective July 1, 2016. To be a course that satisfies the License Law Education requirement, the course must be approved through GREC as such.

To renew your license on or after July 1, 2016, you need:

  • 36 hours of CE credits, and
  • 3 hours of your 36 hours needed to renew your license must include a course approved for License Law credit.

If you are “grandfathered” by the GREC and, therefore, do not need CE to renew your license, the License Law requirement does not apply to you.
