If you do not see your CE courses on DC Pulse Portal:

  • Please make sure you are viewing the "Current Period."
  • Please make sure the pop-up blocker is off, as the CE transcripts open in a new window. It may take a couple of minutes for the window to open.
  • Please make sure you have selected the correct license type. The default license type is Salesperson, so if you are a Broker you will only see past Salesperson courses unless you change the license type.
  • There may be CE courses listed on more than one page. Please click "Next" to view each page of the CE transcripts. The most recently reported courses may not be on the first page.
  • If you are a licensee with an inactive status, Pulse Portal will not display your CE credits.
  • Use the official last name as reported to Pulse Portal, including the exact spelling (with or without hyphens, commas, etc.). If there has been a name change, it will not be in Pulse Portal until the licensee reports the change to Pulse Portal. A simple cover letter with a copy of a marriage certificate or other official documentation is usually what Pulse Portal requires.
  • When typing in the license number:
    • Include the Alpha portion of the license number with no spaces between the alpha and numeric digits.
    • Use all CAPS for the alpha portion of the number, ensure that “Independent” Brokers enter a capital “I” and not a number “1” (one) or a lowercase “L."
