CE Broker

CE Broker is the official CE tracking system for the Tennessee Real Estate Commission. The Commission has partnered with CE Broker to allow education providers quicker access to report continued education. CE Broker also allows licensees to check compliance and receive additional reminders about their license renewal. There is no requirement to create an account with CE Broker as all licensee renewal information will still be completed through CORE.
