Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is required to obtain a Connecticut real estate salesperson license?
A: Prior to obtaining your real estate salesperson license in Connecticut, you must first take the 60-hour Principles and Practice pre-licensing course. Upon completion of the course and passing the final exam, you then must send in your license application, application fee and certificate of course completion to the state licensing agency (currently PSI – www.psiexams.com ). Upon approval of your application, you will then be mailed a postcard authorizing you to sit for the state licensing exam, which you may then register and pay for the exam fee. Once you have passed the state licensing exam, you will then submit the original passing score results, along with your initial licensing fee, to the state. Upon receipt and approval, the state will issue you your real estate salesperson license.
Q: What is required for a Connecticut real estate salesperson licensee to upgrade to a real estate broker license?
A: To obtain a real estate broker license in the state of Connecticut, you must have held your real estate salesperson license for at least two years. In addition, you need 120 hours of classroom training, including 60 hours of Principles & Practices. If you took Principles & Practices prior to October, 2004, then only 30 hours of coursework was required. To upgrade to your broker’s license, you now must take the entire 60-hour Principles & Practices class, as your initial 30-hour class will not be accepted. The classes required for your Broker’s license are as follows:
60 hours Principles & Practices of Real Estate
30 hours Appraisal
30 hours approved elective course
** These requirements are changing for all Broker application received on or after July 1, 2016.

Most classes are held in our training facility at 1 Padanaram Road, Suite 204, Danbury, Connecticut.
Q: When can I start my classes?
A: Pre-licensing classes run in a cyclical manner, and each session is its own individual unit. Because of this, you may start your classes at any time after you have enrolled and paid for the classes. Many students have begun their coursework during review sessions, which they later said was great because it served as a preview for all of the class content. We do recommend you contact us to verify that class will be in session on the date you wish to begin.
Q: What is the cost of the classes?
A: Please see current costs, and feel free to enroll online, on our Sign-Up page.

A: The pre-licensing class is a 60-hour course. You will attend 15 class sessions, plus take the final exam. Many students are able to complete the classes in about 8 weeks.
Broker licensing classes are 30-hour courses and are arranged as needed.
Continuing education classes are typically 3 hour long classes.
Q: Do you offer morning classes?
A: Please see our Class Schedule for the complete details of when our classes are offered.
Q: Are the classes boring?
A: No! There is a lot of information that will be covered in each class session. However, all information is taught in a manner where “real-life” situations are incorporated into the instruction to make the classes not only information, but enjoyable and fun, too. We take our classes and the content seriously, but we laugh a lot as we learn together.
Q: What is your refund policy?
A: Pre-licensing students are eligible for a refund at any time prior to their scheduled first class, less a $25 processing fee.
