FAQ: What course am I required to take to get a FL real estate license?

What course am I required to take to get a FL real estate license?

As a real estate sales associate license applicant, you are required to complete a 63-hour pre-license course administered by an approved provider unless you are exempt from the education requirement.

Those who are, or may be, exempt from the education requirement include:

·Those candidates who already hold a real estate license in another state that has a mutual recognition agreement with Florida (Alabama, Arkansas, Connecticut, Georgia, Mississippi, Illinois, Nebraska and Rhode Island). These candidates will need to include a certification of license history with their application.

·Those candidates who have completed a commission-approved four-year degree in real estate. These candidates will need to include an official transcript with their application.

·Attorneys are exempt from the 63-hour pre-licensing course required of sales associate candidates if they are active members in good standing with the Florida Bar.

While you will not need to submit your course completion certificate with your application, you will be required to provide proof of completion before you take the state exam. You may take the course online or in-person from the approved provider list.

The course equals 60 classroom hours of 50 minutes each, plus a 3-hour final course exam. The passing grade for the course’s final exam is 70%.
