How to Get a Real Estate Salesperson’s License in Alaska

Anyone seeking Alaska real estate license must be at least 19 years of age and not be under indictment for a felony or crime that could impact their ability to competently practice real estate.

If you meet this basic qualification, you can earn an Alaska salesperson license in (7) steps.

Step 1: Take the 40-hour Pre-licensing Education

All new salesperson candidates must take 40 hours of pre-licensing education from an approved education provider. During your course, you will learn about real estate practice, federal and state real estate regulations, real estate financing, and other essential topics for working as a salesperson. Your pre-license education course certificate is good for 18 months.

Step 2: Schedule the Licensing Exam

Pearson VUE administers Alaska's Real Estate Salesperson License Exam. Schedule your exam directly by visiting or calling (800) 274-5592.

The non-refundable exam fee is $100. You directly pay Pearson VUE using credit card, money order, company check, electronic check, or voucher.

Refer to the Alaska Candidate Bulletin for information on examination schedules, site locations, exam security, reporting, and preparation.

Step 3: Pass the Licensing Exam

Bring to the test center two forms of identification in English. One form of identification must be a photo-bearing government-issued ID.

The Alaska state salesperson exam has two sections: national and state law.

The Alaska Salesperson Pre-licensure Exam includes:

  • National section of 80 questions.
  • State section of 40 questions.
  • Four total hours to complete the exam.

Alaska uses a scaled score on its licensing exam. Scaled scores compensate for variations in exam difficulty and run from 1 to 100. A passing score is 75.

You will receive a score report marked “pass” or “fail” before leaving the center. The exam results are valid for six months.

Step 4: Purchase Errors and Omissions Insurance

All real estate salespersons are required to carry errors and omissions insurance. Alaska does offer a group policy through RIAK. You can opt for a private policy. The coverage must meet the minimum coverage standards as detailed in Article 4 of the Centralized Licensing Regulations.

Step 5: Be hired by an Alaska broker

All Alaska salespersons must work under the supervision of a licensed Alaska broker. Their information is required for your application form.

Step 6: Apply for an Alaska Salesperson Real Estate License

After passing the exam, you have six months to apply for your salesperson license. Alaska has the option to use an online application or a paper application.

The total fee for your application and initial licensure is $390.00, payable by credit card.

Submit with the Alaska salesperson application:

  • Original exam score showing a passing score within the last six months
  • Certificate of completion for pre-licensing education
  • Proof of errors and omissions insurance
  • Any documentation as required to “yes” answers in Part IV of the application

Once the application has been reviewed and approved, the license will be issued and sent to you. Congratulations, you are now an Alaska real estate salesperson!

Step 7: Post-licensing education

Be aware that all new licensees must take 30-hour post-licensing education within one year of licensure to maintain a Alaska salesperson license. These 30 hours are in addition to the 20 hours of continuing education required for your first renewal. Your deadline for completing this education is listed on your individual license.

My husband spotted the Real Estate U Groupon deal and he said I should look into it. Honestly at first I thought it had to be too good to be true. But after reading reviews and doing some research I said: “What the heck?!” For the price I really didn’t have much to lose.

I’m so happy I took the leap of faith! I loved the audible learning and that I could literally bring it with me wherever I went! I finished in 3 months! Trust me when I say if I can do it you can do it. I’m a very busy mother of 3 and they all have extracurricular activities, but somehow I buckled down and finished.

I did take a live test prep class at a local real estate school just to cover all bases. I reviewed all the quizzes from all the chapters to prepare. My advice would be to take your time when you test. I was so nervous but I took my time because I knew the material I just had to take my time!
Passing on my first try felt amazing!

I would not be here had I not had the amazing opportunity to complete the real estate licensing course via Real Estate U! I highly recommend the Real Estate U course. In fact my oldest son has decided to take the course as well!

To obtain my license I chose RealEstateU. The courses were extremely helpful in passing state and national exam on my first try. I like the fact that I could study at my pace and I was able use my mobile to access my courses when on the road or when waiting on doctor appointments with my children.

I was able to go back and listen again and again to the parts that I did not get from the beginning. This is something that wouldn't have been provided by being in a classroom setting. If you are looking to obtain your license just be persistent and don't give up on your dream! I was able to invest in this course and more than tripled my return on the first home which I sold short after I obtained my real estate license.

If this is something you think you'll enjoy try it out and take the risk. Why not risk on something that has the potential to double or triple your income on the side. Jump on the opportunity of getting your license, which honestly is the easy part. And then go all in on the process helping clients and customers get what they want, which is a great home buying/selling experience.

Real Estate allows me to regulate my schedule so I can dedicate time to my children and their activities. I will be working for LIV Realty in Frisco, TX and will be working full-time. My goals moving forward are to continue learning, networking and growing towards my own business. I plan on becoming a broker one day.

I loved the ease of the course. I was able to navigate easily and picked up where I left off each day. If I had any questions I received a response back very quickly from the RealEstateU support team. I was able to study and retain information easily. The workbook and the glossary were easy to follow and allowed me to print them to take with me in the event that I was not able to use my laptop. I loved that the course was accessible from a cell phone as well. We had a planned trip across the United States and I was able to study on my cell phone as we travelled 9 states. I have already recommended the course to a few of my friends!

Thank you so much for your help over the last few weeks. I rushed to get through the course because I am so excited to start working in the field as a NYS realtor. I thought this would have a negative impact on me toward the end when I was ready to test, but I feel I retained a lot of the info and am happy with the results.
