Note: There is no post license requirement for brokers.
Alabama Licensing Process and Deadlines:
1. Completion of the Salesperson's 30-hour post license course: A person shall be required to have a temporary license issued prior to taking a post license course as identified in Rule 790-X-2-.03. If a salesperson's temporary license is issued on active status, the 30-hour post license course must be completed within six months AND an application for a permanent/original license submitted to remain on active status. The six-month period begins on the first day of the month following issuance of the temporary license and concludes on the last day of the sixth month. For example, a temporary license is issued on June 10. The six months will begin on July 1 and end on December 31.
2. Submitting Application for a Permanent/Original Salesperson's License: Every temporary salesperson MUST take a 30-hour post license course and submit the Application for an Original Salesperson License within 12 months. The 12 months begin on the first day of the month following issuance of the temporary license and conclude on the last day of the twelfth month. This deadline applies to both active and inactive licensees. The application for an original salesperson's license can be found on the Commission's website at www.arec.alabama.gov.
3. A Lapsed Temporary Salesperson's License: Failure to submit application and have the permanent/original license issued within the 12-month time frame described above will result in the license lapsing, and the applicant will have to begin the licensing process again with the prelicense course.
The preceding deadlines have been explained to me by the school, and I understand the licensing requirements that must be met for temporary and permanent licensure. I also understand that I may contact the Real Estate Commission at any time if I have questions. By electronically signing the bottom of this page and proceeding to the online course, I am indicating that I understand these licensing requirements.
This course requires a LIVE PROCTORED FINAL EXAMINATION for course completion.
