Real Estate Salesperson Certificate of Achievement



Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Certificates and Degrees by Area

The purpose of this certificate is to help prepare a student to take the Real Estate Salesperson licensing examination. The courses listed in the Real Estate Salesperson Certificate of Achievement will qualify a student to take the written examination for a real estate salesperson license (see https://www.dre.ca.gov/examinees/requirementssales.html). Upon successfully passing the examination and other California Department of Real Estate (DRE) requirements, a license will need to be approved by the DRE. For additional information regarding the Real Estate Salesperson license, refer to http://www.dre.ca.gov. The license is required of individuals who conduct licensed real estate activities as described by Real Estate Law in California. Licensed Real Estate Salespersons work under the supervision of a licensed broker. Real Estate Salespersons are generally employed in real estate offices serving the general public; however, some agents secure employment with commercial enterprises operating in the real estate industry (e.g., developers, government agencies, escrow companies, loan officer, mortgage banker, property manager). Students are encouraged to continue their real estate training by completing the requirements for the Real Estate Broker Certificate of Achievement and the Real Estate A.S. degree or Certificate of Achievement as well. To earn a Certificate of Achievement, students must complete each of the required courses with a “C” grade or higher.
