Arizona Real Estate License Requirements

Learn about the Arizona education requirements for real estate licensing and renewal.

Licensing Board/Commission: Arizona Department of Real Estate (ADRE)

Arizona Real Estate Education Requirements:

  • Arizona real estate salesperson license: 90 hours of in-classroom real estate salesperson pre-license education
  • Arizona real estate broker license: 90 hours of in-classroom real estate salesperson pre-license education

State Reciprocity:

Arizona is a non-reciprocal state (see Substantive Policy Statement No. 2008.01). That means, even if you hold a real estate license in another state, your education requirements are the same as those of anyone else becoming a real estate agent in Arizona.

  • Arizona salespersons must take 24 hours of real estate CE, including:
    • 3 hours of agency law
