HARRISBURG – Bucks County Rep. Todd Polinchock introduced legislation to amend the Real Estate Licensing and Registration Act to permit real estate schools which have been approved to provide in-person instruction to also livestream the course, offering it to remote students. He said real estate professionals, like so many, have seen the worst of COVID-19 mitigation orders and shutdowns last year. Offering courses remotely is a solution in helping real estate professionals, and those wanting to go into that business, serve our communities safely and without roadblocks. In PA, to obtain a real estate license, candidates must complete 75 hours of classes and pass two exams. Those seeking to renew their real estate license are required to take 14 hours of classes every two years. Real estate schools that have been approved to run in-person classes begin this fall.
