All CT License holders must complete CE prior to every even-year renewal. The CE completion date for Salespersons is  5/31/2018  and 3/31/2018  for Brokers.    If you are a dually licensed agent you must take CE that is CT specific and certified for CT. If you have taken a class in NY it must give CE credit for CT and you must receive a certificate for CT. You may not apply any CE that was utilized for a previous license period to the current CE cycle. You are only exempt if you PASSED the CONNECTICUT LICENSING EXAM during the CE period  6/1/2016-5/31/2018
