Salesperson Pre-Licensing Requirements

To be eligible to take the Salesperson Examination, you must fulfill two requirements:

  • Pass each course listed above; and,
  • Meet the state’s contact hour attendance requirements. Class attendance is mandatory.

Salesperson Post-Licensing Requirements

Not earlier than the date of issue of a real estate salesperson’s license to a licensee, but not later than twelve months after the date of issue of a real estate salesperson license to a licensee, the licensee shall submit proof satisfactory to the superintendent, on forms made available by the superintendent, of the completion of ten hours of classroom instruction that shall be completed in schools, seminars, and educational institutions approved by the commission.

Broker Post-Licensing Requirements

Within one year after issuance of a Broker’s License, the licensee must complete a 10-hour post licensure course in real estate brokerage. This course may be completed at other institutions approved by the Ohio Real Estate Commission. If this requirement is not met, the license will be suspended and the broker has a 1-year grace period to complete the course.

Program format(s)

This program follows an 8-week course format. This means you will take fewer classes at a time, and earn credits faster as you complete the program. Each semester is divided into two 8-week sessions, with a smaller number of classes taken during each compared to a traditional 16-week semester schedule.
