Alabama Real Estate Pre-License

AREC Required Courses to Get Your Alabama Real Estate License

Becoming a real estate agent can be one of the most financially rewarding and personally satisfying career paths. While it requires hard work and dedication, it provides a level of freedom that is unachievable in most other careers. The process of becoming a real estate agent starts with enrolling in pre-licensing courses and typically only takes 1-2 months, even for full time professionals only working on it during nights and weekends.

The Alabama Real Estate Commission (AREC) requires you to complete 60 hours of real estate education before applying for a license.  We offer AREC approved coursework that makes it easy to get licensed quickly, so you can start your new career!

Licensing requirements for Alabama applicants are as follows:

  • be a U.S. citizen, permanent resident, or lawfully admitted alien
  • be 19 or older
  • have a high school diploma or the equivalent
  • have no convictions for a felony or crime of moral turpitude on your record
  • not have been rejected or had your license revoked by any real estate licensing board in the last 2 years

If you’re concerned about your potential eligibility, you should apply for a Determination of License Eligibility with AREC before taking pre-licensing courses.

First, you will need to find a current and active Alabama broker to sponsor your license application. Because your application is due 90 days after your test, you should start researching brokers before you take the state licensing exam.

You should also submit your license application early to give ample time for processing. Then you’ll need to go to AREC’s approved background check processor to get fingerprinted. AREC suggests you wait to take this step until the day you submit your application because they’ll only have access to the background check for a short window of time.

If your application is approved, AREC will issue a temporary license.  You’ll have to complete a post-licensing course before AREC will issue a permanent license, but during that time, you’ll be able to practice real estate.

You will receive an electronic certificate of completion after finishing each course. These certificates can be found under ‘My Transcripts’ and will remain in your account indefinitely. These certificates will provide proof to ADRE that you completed the mandatory credit hours to obtain your real estate license.

Reviews from Our Satisfied Customers

“License Classroom has provided me with the quickest and easiest online real estate education I have seen over my career. I completed my real estate pre-license courses through License Classroom over 7 years ago when I first got my Texas salespersons license, and they recently provided me broker education to obtain my broker’s license in 2021. I highly recommend them to anyone who wants to complete their state required education quickly and at a very affordable price.”

“License Classroom offers a completely online solution for everything, so you can take all the courses from the comfort of your home or office. I thought that I’d have to go to a testing center for my Texas SAE renewal, but they offer webcam proctoring! Also, I was able to reach a real person in America on the phone within 30 seconds any time I called!”

“The License Classroom CE course was easy-to-use and educational for me. I was able to work on the courses on my own time and the topics were updated and relevant to my slice of real estate. Since the courses are 100% online, I didn’t have to waste hours commuting to and sitting in a classroom. I highly recommend License Classroom for CE, especially if you catch one of their great sales.”
