Take the Sales PreLicensing Course (40 hours)
Complete a 40-hour class* which meets the Alaska Real Estate Commissions outline. Many people choose to take the class by correspondence. This gives them time and flexibility given busy schedules and other commitments. Optional Zoom classes are available. You will need to complete our school’s quiz for your certificate of completion. The certificate of completion is good for 18 months.
*Individuals with an active license outside the state of Alaska may be able to get their license by endorsement and should confirm with the AREC.
Take the Alaska Real Estate Licensing Exam by Pearson Vue (www.pearsonvue.com)
After you have completed the course and your studying, you can take the licensing exam. The cost for the exam, directly to Pearson Vue, is $100. You will need to schedule and make a reservation for the exam. Sometimes they are several weeks out for reservations so plan carefully. You do NOT have to be in the state of Alaska to take the test for the Alaska license. You can take the exam anywhere Pearson Vue has a testing facility.
Pick a sponsoring Broker.
You will need to have a broker sign your application for your license. To make your choice a bit easier we offer
- “Brokerage Interview Questionnaire” which you can download here: www.alaskatraining.com
- Referrals to trusted, reliable, and professional brokers for our students.
Get Errors and Omissions Insurance (E&O)
Your Broker may offer E&O insurance at no cost or little cost to you. Check with your Broker. The state offers insurance through a national, master company, or there are other resources you can use. Students of Royse and Associates get referrals to alternative sources for E&O insurance.
Apply for your license.
- Fill out a form with the AREC with a broker’s signature and proof of E&O insurance
- Provide your Certificate of Completion for the course
- Your certificate that you passed the test with Pearson Vue
