Available programs


We offer a home study/online education for students to meet California pre-licensing education requirements for both Salesperson and Broker options.

Students who enroll in our pre-licensing packages will be provided with the course text and online study materials and, once these materials are received, students are required to review the content for a minimum of 18 days per course per CA law.

Students are required to first test through the school website to obtain a school certificate of completion, then proceed to the state testing center to meet licensing requirements.
