Can You Get Your Arizona Real Estate License Online?
Last Update: November 25, 2023
Starting in 2019, Arizona made a significant update to its real estate licensing process. Now, you can get your Arizona real estate license online! The state has given its official approval to offer the “real estate salesperson pre-license course” through online platforms. In simpler terms, you can complete the entire 90-hour real estate agent education required to become a licensed agent from the comfort of your own computer.
It’s important to note that while the majority of the course can be done online, the school’s final exam still needs to be taken in person. However, during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, there was a temporary approval allowing online exams, but that has since expired.
This exciting change has lifted a huge burden for those with busy schedules, juggling work and family commitments. Now, you have the flexibility to work towards your AZ real estate license at any time that suits you, 24/7, 365 days a year.
What’s more, the recent rule change now allows you to complete the 6-hour Contract Writing Course (CWC) required by the state online/on demand. This is especially helpful considering the impact of the covid-19 pandemic on classroom-based learning. Previously, the course was taught remotely through virtual video format, but students still had to attend specific dates and times. However, in 2020, the online/on demand format was approved for the CWC as well.
To sum it up, you can now complete the full 90 hours of state required AZ salesperson education online and on your own schedule, including the 6-hour CWC. The only parts that still require in-person attendance are the school final exam and the state Salesperson licensing exam, which must be taken at an approved testing center.
So yes, you can get your Arizona real estate license online.
