REAL ESTATE LICENSE

Getting Your Real Estate License

The initial real estate license in Tennessee is called an Affiliate Broker license. With the following four steps, you can be in the real estate business.

Step #1: 60 Hours Prelicense Course

Complete 60 hours of Prelicensing fundamentals. CLI offers two 30-hour segments, Prelicense A and B, available during days and weekends. You may start with either A or B and finish in as little as two weeks. The last day of each Part A and Part B class will have a final exam. 

Select one Prelicensing A and one Prelicensing B.

**At this time, classes are delivered virtually through Zoom.

Prelicensing A & B (60 hrs.) Course Fee: $390 (Can be paid separately)

Refund policy:

Payments are valid for one year. If a course is pre-paid and the student does not attend the course within one year, a full refund is available, minus any books or materials used. If rescheduling is needed, credit may be applied towards a future course (only within one year). If the student attends part of the course, then requests a refund, only a partial refund will be available (depending on how much class was attended).

 

Step #2: Pass the Tennessee State Exam

There are two parts to the exam – National and Tennessee State Law. With 39+ years experience, CLI has an excellent pass rate!

ADDITIONAL EXAM PREP AVAILABLE

If you would like some extra test preparation, consider taking the optional Accelerated Review Course for additional practice.

You can register any time. You’ll receive the course textbook and an emailed link to the video instruction. Students will have access to the videos for 30 days from the date they access the link. Start when you want to!

Course Fee:  $115 ($100 for CLI graduates)

Individual Tutoring

You may ask all types of questions during class and breaks. Some students may, however, want some additional tutoring, and CLI has instructors available for one-on-one instruction at a nominal charge.

 

Exam Prep Books

Unlike some other schools, the textbook and all materials are included in your Prelicense course fee. For extra preparation, CLI has a bookstore available with additional sample test booklets and other study aids.

Audit Policy

CLI has an audit policy for previous students who are having trouble passing their state exam on the first try. Auditing is only allowed during the 60 hour prelicensing courses and only for students who have attended those prelicensing courses within the past year. Contact the office for more details.

**NOTE: Student must contact the office prior to auditing. 

Step #3: Complete Course for New Affiliates (30 hours)

License candidates must complete this course prior to obtaining the license. The Course for New Affiliates is available in an easy to understand home study format. It is a practical course on how to get started and be successful in the real estate business. Order through the website, and the course will be mailed to you!

Course Fee: $185 including all materials

 

 

Step #4: Affiliate with a Real Estate Company

You have now successfully passed the real estate exam and completed the 60 hours of Pre-licensing classes and the 30 hour Course for New Affiliates.

The final step is selecting a real estate company with which to affiliate. There are many companies looking for new full-time or part-time agents.

Congratulations! We appreciate partnering with you starting in an exciting real estate career.

We hope you’ll return for continuing education courses and refer others to CLI.
