Pre-license course approval
Responsibilities of a pre-license course provider
Once the pre-license courses are approved, the pre-license course provider must:
- Inform each student that:
- The student must provide proof to the provider that the student has applied to the Agency for a broker license.
- The course provider will notify PSI when the student is eligible to take the broker license exam.
- Obtain proof from the student that they have applied for a broker license with the Agency.
- Notify PSI, according to the requirements and instructions of PSI, when a student has successfully completed the broker pre-license courses. This makes the student eligible to take the broker license exam.
- Provide a certificate of completion to each student.
- Renew course approval annually.
Renewal of pre-license course approval
Approval of pre-license courses expires every year on July 1. The Agency will send renewal emails to the email addresses on file as a courtesy. It is the responsibility of the course provider to make sure the course approval is renewed in a timely manner.
