  2. Complete the additional 6 hour Contract Writing Course (required by ADRE).
  3. Pass a school exam in order to get a course graduation certificate.
  4. Use that certificate to go take (and pass) the official Arizona Salesperson exam at a testing center.
  5. Find a brokerage to work for in Arizona.
  6. Give all of your paperwork and exam score to ADRE in order to “Activate” your license

How Long Will These 6 Steps Take?

While most schools will give you at least 6 months to complete their courses, it is possible to complete all 6 steps in as little as 3 weeks. That requires a nearly full time schedule of training, studying and testing though. 

For many students, they will still be working a full time job outside of real estate school. In those cases, a highly motivated student can complete all steps in 6-8 weeks.

Finally, a large amount of students will prefer to work towards their license a couple days of week only and take a full 6 months to complete all steps. That is completely acceptable, however we do highly recommend taking extra time to review previous material and consider joining a virtual tutoring class at about the 3 month mark, just to make sure that you don’t forget what you learned earlier.
