Real Estate Broker Licensing Course
The experience requirement for licensure as a broker requires the applicant to demonstrate a commitment to real estate brokerage as their primary vocation, as evidenced by their involvement in the real estate brokerage business on a full-time basis. Applicants must have been continually licensed and employed as a real estate salesperson during the three years immediately preceding their application. To demonstrate full-time employment the applicant must show that they have worked as a salesperson under the authority of a broker for at least 40 hours per week during the hours of approximately 10:00 A.M. to 8:00 P.M. during any five days of each week. If the applicant was employed in any other occupation during the three year period, such other employment must not have exceeded 25 hours per week. If you need to verify your license status you should do so before enrolling in the broker course. You may download the necessary form at here.
A broker license candidate must first successfully complete courses of study in real estate consisting of a minimum of 150 hours. The 150 hours shall be completed by first taking a 90 hour general real estate broker course. After completing the 90 hour course, candidates must successfully complete a 30 hour prelicensure course on brokers' ethics and agency law and relationships, and a second 30 hour prelicensure course on office management and related topics. All three courses of instruction must be completed within a period of two years.
