Broker Pre-license Course (Units 3A & 3B)

Course Number: OPL011005 | OPL011003

Unit 3-A:

The broker’s 60-hour pre-license requirement is divided into two 30-hour classes. The first course, Unit 3-A, is called ‘Brokerage Management’. It consists of subjects that are useful in planning, starting, and managing a real estate brokerage company. There will be an emphasis on the “real world” aspects of running a real estate company. This course is mandated because the broker’s license allows you to hire subagents and operate a brokerage business—the salesperson’s license does not. The Real Estate Commission wants you to be exposed to this material to help prepare you to operate your business. There is no written exam for this required pre-license course.

Unit 3-B:

The second required pre-license course, Unit 3-B, is called ‘Broker’s Exam’; It covers the basic fundamental body of knowledge on which the exam is based.


The cost of the courses are listed below:

The cost of Unit 3-A is $310 this includes all course materials for this class.
The cost of Unit 3-B is $325 this includes all course materials for this class.
The cost for both classes is $635 this includes all course materials for both classes.
* If you choose not to pay for classes above in full, then you can hold your spot in the class by sending a $150 deposit ($75 deposit per class). This deposit will hold a seat for you in both Unit 3A and Unit 3B. Balance of tuition is due on or before the first day of class at check-in.
