Real Estate Education Developed by Real Estate Professionals

Pennsylvania State Licensing Requirements

REALTY INSTITUTE has been a leader in real estate education for more than three decades and we have educated over 60,000 students. 

All courses are approved by your state licensing commission and The Association of Real Estate License Law Officials, known as ARELLO. ARELLO standards require a high quality delivery system that makes online learning simple.  The system we offer is among the very best available today. 

All material offered by Realty Institute has been written by experienced real estate professionals who take pride in their ability to present subjects in a clear and easily understood manner.  All courses offer audio throughout giving the student the opportunity to read, listen, or both. Our courses are designed for ease of navigation and learning. Each subject is broken down into individual chapters and the student has the ability to sign off and on as often as they choose. Each time they signoff they will automatically have their place book marked. When they return to the material they will be at the point they left.   

At the end of each chapter there will be multiple choice questions. If you answer incorrectly, you will have the opportunity answer a different question without having to re-read the material or receive a penalty.  

There are no graded exams.  

Our courses are timed based on state requirements and a timer appears on the bottom of your screen. As you complete each page an arrow will allow you to move to the next one. 

You will be automatically logged off if you fail to advance pages for 5 minutes or more.

Your state licensing commission will be notified and your Certificate of Completion will be available to print upon completing the course.


Section 404.1(a) of the Real Estate Licensing and Registration Act requires real estate brokers and salespersons to complete 14 hours of Commission-approved continuing education during each two- year license period.

Additionally, a licensed broker or salesperson who wishes to activate a license that has been placed on inactive status shall be required to document 14 hours of continuing education. Per Section 35.382(b) of the Regulations, continuing education that is used to reactivate a license cannot be used to renew the license during the same renewal period.  And additional 14 hours of continuing education will need to be completed prior to renewal.

If your license has been in escrow for a period of five years or longer, you must retake the salesperson/broker examination before your license can be reactivated.
