Stay Safe and Healthy
The expiration date of each Covered Authorization is hereby extended to the 30th day after the date by which the state of emergency is terminated and the catastrophic health emergency is rescinded. You are encouraged to continue taking your continuing education courses, renewing your licenses online, and performing all other activities that are required for your license to the extent that you are able.

Some licenses are affected as follows: The validity of this license, certification, or registration has been extended until 30 days after the date which the state of emergency (Executive Order 51) is lifted. Please check your license status at Virginia Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation.

License renewal dates will remain the same. License renewal is accomplished on-line, and no profession requires licensees to report to the Division in person. If you have technical difficulty renewing on-line, contact the Division by telephone at (302) 744-4500. When completing your on-line renewal, the continuing education attestation page will ask if you have been unable to complete your required continuing education due to the Governor’s declared state of emergency. Any licensee who attests that s/he has had difficulty completing CEs before renewal due to the declared state of emergency will be immediately granted additional time to complete their CEs. If the declared state of emergency has impacted your ability to complete your CEs, you will be given until sixty days after the lifting of the state of emergency to complete your CEs for this renewal cycle.

There continues to be many questions about CE courses. As always you can find an approved listing of classes at the West Virginia Real Estate Commission. The WVAR and others will, very soon be providing CE classes via Zoom. This solution will allow many licensees to gain CE credit in a virtual setting with an instructor and proctor. Information on how to sign up for classes should be coming to you from the providers soon.
Renewal Notification Letters went out in the U.S. Mail this morning (April 9, 2020) You should begin to receive them as early as tomorrow. As I stated last week, the commission does not intend to push back or extend the 2021 Renewal Period which begins on May 1, 2020.
