What is the Arizona Real Estate Contract Writing Course?

Last Update:  September 15, 2021

To fulfill the requirements of ARS 32-2124, agents must have an introduction to Contract Writing. This “introduction” is known as the Contract Writing Course (CWC), and it is available here at American Realty Academy! State law now permits the Contract Writing Course to be taken 100% online in addition to the traditional live classroom experience, read Can You Get Your Arizona Real Estate License Online. The course is 6 hours in length, including 3 hours of Contract Law, and 3 hours of Real Estate Legal Issues. Agents can expect to learn how to draft contracts in purchasing real property, as well as being knowledgeable in both listing and lease agreements. This course may also count towards an agent’s first time in renewing their Continuing Education credits!

In many cases, students purchase this course in a package with their 90 hour salesperson course, though that is not always the case. It is important to note, that the 6 hours of CWC training is not part of the 90 hour Arizona salesperson’s course and it must be taken in addition to that training.  Learn more about the salesperson process with our article How To Become A Real Estate Agent In Arizona.
