  2. Complete 63 hours of pre-license education. Your education is valid for 2 years from the completion date on your certificate.
  3. Get your fingerprints done. You must submit your fingerprints at least five days before submitting your application.
  4. Submit the Application for Sale Associate License to the Florida Real Estate Commission (FREC).
