Dear CE Provider:
Happy New Year!!! Please be aware that all 2010 Course Certification numbers have expired.
To download your 2011 Approvals and Certification numbers, please visit the website below use your User ID, and Password and set the Begin Date to 01/01/2011.
Downloading this information is the recommended method of attaining and reporting course information. It will enable you to: 1) Access all course information and 2) Merge correct data into documents such as certificates and sign-in sheets. Incorrect information on certificates causes a delay in licensing processing and may cause unnecessary license suspensions and/or additional fees. Please be aware, OHIO LAW REQUIRES THE RE-ISSUANCE OF CERTIFICATES with corrected certification numbers regardless of the cost to the provider.
Be sure to DOWNLOAD and VERIFY ALL DATES, TIMES and LOCATIONS POSTED!!!
The use of Correct Certification Numbers is critical in all correspondence with the Division of Real Estate. Please be aware that the Division of Real Estate registers more than 10,000 Continuing Education Classes each year. Each course has a specific certification number that uniquely identifies it within our system. In any correspondence with the Division, please identify the certification number and name of the class as well as the date and time. This information assures that we can help you quickly and efficiently.
Courses renewed for use in 2011 but not yet scheduled will have a 12/31/10 class date and a location of: 1st Class of 2011 Not YET Scheduled - Complete Additional Course Offerings form and mail w/ $10 Fee - More Than 10 days PRIOR to holding class. Please use the additional course offering form and submit at least 10 days prior to the course date. Providers are encouraged to submit their course requests early so that they may confirm registration and approval well in advance of the class date.

Please be aware that CE Course review and registration is done in a “1st-In = 1st-Out fashion,” and the general rule is “Sooner in = Sooner out.”
