Montana State Reciprocity:
Real estate commissions and boards across the country are adopting policies for a real estate agent in one state to more easily become licensed in another state. Montana has a reciprocal agreement with the licensing jurisdiction of Alberta, Canada.
Applicants from other statees may submit a waiver of examination and/or education. The Montana Department of Labor & Industry will determine if the other state or jurisdiction has licensing standards substantially equivalent to Montana's requirements. The Board may approve to waive all or part of the required prelicense education and/or the exam.
