No matter how much education you have, you must take the 30-hour TREC approved Real Estate Brokerage course (this is a TREC requirement) within two years prior to filing the application. You may retake ANY course and receive credit toward your broker’s license if you have not taken the course for two years.

We recommend that if you decide to repeat some or all of the pre-licensing courses to obtain additional hours, we definitely recommend retaking Real Estate Principles 1 and Real Estate Principles 2. The broker state exam is still based on these two courses and it will be a good review for you to prepare for taking the state exam. This package complies with TREC guidelines for needed hours.

This course package includes the full Pre-Licensing package over again as you will get credit for the courses again as long as you have not taken them in the last two years.  Yes! They count!  Plus, it’s a great review as you will basically be taking your licensing exam again to get your Broker’s License plus about 20 more broker related questions.  It’s a great review since you probably have not seen this material since you became an agent.

Our other 30 hour courses are so valuable.  They are full of incredibly useful information, in fact, many of our agents hold on to their books and PDF’s and refer back to them for great ideas everyday in their real estate career.

You never have to leave home with any of these courses.  Our courses come with a proctoring tool built into the software that allows you to test in the comfort of your own home without a creepy proctor watching you.  It’s in the software!

Texas Broker License Education Requirements

If you have a four-year degree from an accredited college or university in the United States, the Texas Real Estate Commission will award you 630 clock hours of “related” credit; therefore, with a four-year degree you will only need to acquire at total of 270 clock hours in “qualifying” credit. All courses you took to obtain your salesperson’s license and your SAE renewal hours will all count toward the 270 hours of “qualifying” credit. CE credits only count as “elective” credit toward your Broker’s license.

0 clock hours
Bachelors Degree (4-year)
0 clock hours
Associates Degree (2-year)

If you do not have a four-year degree but you have some college hours, you will need to estimate what percentage of a four-year degree you have and then estimate the number of “clock” hours you will most likely receive. For example, if you have an associates degree (2 year degree), then you can estimate that you will receive approximately 300-315 hours of credit toward your broker’s license 630 ÷ 2= 315.

OR if you have a year of college, you can estimate that you will receive approximately 150 -160 hours credit 630 ÷ 4 = 157.5 hours.

Courses taken for credit from an accredited college or university in any of the following areas will be acceptable:  accounting, advertising, architecture, business or management, construction, finance, investments, law, marketing, and real estate.

Of course, it will be necessary for you to submit a Broker’s Application to the Texas Real Estate Commission and the application fee to find out exactly how many hours they will award, but your estimate can be helpful for you to determine if you can complete the necessary requirements in the one year time-frame.
