Education providers are responsible for keeping track of when their courses renew by checking the appropriate online website for their license type.
Sponsors who have approved Insurance courses to renew must renew them online at www.sircon.com.
Sponsors who have approved Real Estate or Appraiser courses to renew must renew them online at www.pulseportal.com.
The first step in renewing your courses is to set-up an account with Sircon or Pearson VUE. If you have already done so, you may use your account to log-in and select the courses that you would like to renew. Payment of the renewal fees will also be done on-line, so please have a major credit card ready.
Setting up an account with Sircon at www.sircon.com:
Please call 517-381-3860 and speak to a customer service representative. After your account has been established, you can complete the renewal process online at www.sircon.com.
Setting up an account with Pearson VUE at www.pulseportal.com:
To register a new account, you need your state ID number and your PIN. You can get these numbers by calling Pearson VUE at 877-244-1688. After your account has been established, you can complete the renewal process online at www.pulseportal.com.
The courses that have been selected for renewal by the education provider will be automatically renewed upon completion of the online process (including payment of the fees). Pre-License course renewals will remain pending, however, until course renewal materials are received by the MN Department of Commerce.
You can access the Pre-License course applications on this page in the sections above. Pre-License course renewals cannot be processed until applications are mailed to the MN Department of Commerce along with a renewal confirmation page indicating online payment.
RENEWAL NOTE: Education courses cannot be offered or renewed when either the content of an approved course or its method of instruction changes, the course is no longer approved for license education credit. A new application must be submitted for the changed course if the education provider intends to offer it for license education credit.
The course renewal fee for the two-year renewal cycle is $10.00 per course plus a credit card processing fee.
