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
- Final Exams: Your final course exam must be proctored for qualifying education. Most students opt for exam prep tailored specifically for Arizona to help them increase their chances of passing their exams.
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.
