For a course to qualify as fulfilling an applicant’s prelicensing educational requirement, the course must be conducted by an accredited post-secondary school or a school or organization licensed by the Arkansas Real Estate Commission, a school or organization approved by a real estate licensing jurisdiction deemed equivalent by the Commission.
For salesperson applicants, the 60-hour certificate has no expiration.
Broker applicants must complete sixty (60) hours of real estate education, of which forty-five (45) hours must be the commission developed Broker Pre-License Education course, from an accredited post secondary school or a school or organization licensed by the Arkansas Real Estate Commission within 36 months immediately preceding the date they apply to take the broker's exam.
Courses identified as "Exam Prep" courses generally do not fulfill the pre-license requirement.
