Acquiring a Pennsylvania Real Estate License

A person wishing to acquire a Pennsylvania Real Estate License must be at least 18 years of age, have four educational credits in real estate from an approved education provider, submit a criminal background check and have successfully completed the Pennsylvania State Licensing Examination.

Real Estate Fundamentals and Real Estate Practice are the mandatory courses that must be successfully completed before sitting for the exam. Each course is worth two educational credits. The Real Estate Fundamentals course provides foundational principles, language and knowledge base about the laws that govern the practice of real estate in Pennsylvania. The Real Estate Practice course introduces ethics, techniques, procedures, regulations, and forms involved in a real estate transaction.

After passing the Pennsylvania State Licensing Exam, a sponsoring broker is required for issuance of the salesperson’s license. After passing the exam, the licensee may wait up to three years before activating the license. After three years, the prospective licensee must re-take the exam.
