Broker Renewal Extended to September 30, 2020

On Wednesday, March 18, 2020, an announcement was made by the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) to extend renewal dates and continuing education (CE) deadlines until SEPTEMBER 30, 2020. The most immediate impact is upon broker licensees who were set to complete CE and renew their licenses by April 30, 2020.

Please keep in mind, this extension in no way affects the requirement to complete CE prior to the extended renewal date (September 30, 2020). Therefore, all licensees will still need to complete their particular CE requirement in order to successfully renew their licenses.

In addition, any pre- or post-license or CE course that was required to be provided in a live classroom setting is now allowed to be provided by technological or on-line methods. The live requirement has been waived through July 31, 2020.

It is very important to the BNAR Board, Education Committee and staff that we continue to offer you educational opportunities with which to fulfill your CE requirements, even during this time of uncertainty. Provisions are being made so that we may continue to offer the currently scheduled CE Courses in an online learning capacity, available to take from the comfort and security of your own home. Please stay tuned for further details.
