Repeat course in back-to-back renewals: Please note that the Nebraska Real Estate Commission does not allow for duplication of CE elective courses within four years. However, "R" (required) courses are an exception to this rule and may be duplicated in subsequent Continuing Education periods but NOT in the same Continuing Education period. If an elective (non-"R") course approval number is duplicated in a four-year period, CE credit will not be given for the duplicated course. It is the licensee's responsibility to ensure they are in compliance with this rule.  The course content number is used to determine duplication of content between courses i.e. don’t take the same number within 4 years.  Please refer to the duplication restrictions on the Nebraska website for further information.
