Please note the following for taking the courses:
All individuals submitting an application to take the salesperson or broker license examination received by the Department on or after January 1, 2024 will be affected by Senate Bill 1495 (SB 1495). SB 1495, which becomes effective January 1, 2024, makes changes to the real estate practice course that must be completed by all eligible applicants for licensure. More specifically, SB 1495 requires that this real estate practice course include the following content:
A component on implicit bias, including education regarding the impact of implicit bias, explicit bias, and systemic bias on consumers, the historical and social impacts of those biases, and actionable steps students can take to recognize and address their own implicit biases.
A component on federal and state fair housing laws as those laws apply to the practice of real estate. The fair housing component shall include an interactive participatory component, during which the applicant shall role play as both a consumer and real estate professional.
