Is there anything I need before getting started? 

To get started on the entire licensing process, you'll need to make sure you meet the state’s qualifications to become a real estate salesperson. If you're in the clear to take our courses, make sure you meet the minimum system requirements.


1. Make sure you're qualified to become a real estate agent first.

Before you begin taking your pre-licensing courses, you'll first need to make sure you meet California’s qualifications for becoming a real estate salesperson.


Here are the requirements you need to meet:

  1. You can get started on your pre-license course work if you are under 18 years old, but you’ll need to be at least 18 years old to submit your application for your real estate salesperson exam.
  2. Ensure that you meet the standards set by the state by submitting fingerprints and submitting a background check along with your application.

You are not required to have a high school diploma or GED in order to earn your real estate salesperson license.


2. Meet the system requirements to take our courses.
