Real Estate Salesperson:  Must be at least 18 years of age and have to complete at least 30 hours of approved classroom real estate courses if licensed before December 31, 2005, and having successfully completed at least 45 hours of approved classroom courses if licensed after December 31, 2005. All applicants must successfully pass the real estate exams before being licensed. Salesperson applicants are allowed to take the examination before they have completed the education requirements, but they will not be licensed until after passing the examination. The real estate salesperson needs to successfully complete 15 post-licensure hours of approved courses within one year of becoming licensed.   Applicants must have a reputation for honesty, truthfulness, and fair dealing and licenses will not be issued to anyone who has had a real estate license revoked in any state within the two years prior to the date of their anticipated license application.

Continued education:  Licensees need to complete at least 16 hours of approved continuing education courses every two years, with six of these hours being completed within the first year. The real estate salesperson needs to successfully complete 15 post-licensure hours of approved courses within one year of becoming licensed.  

Broker applicants:   Must be at least 18 years of age and have to complete an additional 60 hours of approved classroom courses and need to successfully pass the real estate exams. Brokers may not take the examinations unless they have fulfilled the education requirements first. All applicants for the broker license need to have been actively engaged as a licensed real estate salesperson for at least two years before applying for the broker license, or they shall have had experience that the Commission believes is substantially equal to that which an active salesperson would have had.

Reciprocal license recognition & Non-residents:  North Dakota has reciprocity agreements with states where the licensed broker is regularly engaged in the real estate business as a vocation and where he maintains a definite place of business in the state where he is licensed, and where the broker is not required to maintain an office in North Dakota. The brokerís home state needs to offer the same privilege to brokers licensed in North Dakota. The nonresident broker needs to file an irrevocable consent regarding actions that may be commenced against him
