Approved Broker Classes

90 hours of Approved Broker Classes with RI REALTORS®

Students may choose any of the classes below which are approved to go toward the required 90 hours of continuing education.

It is strongly encouraged to take #1 Broker Pre-license prior to taking the Broker state examination.  Because exam results are valid for 1 year, it is encouraged to take the majority of the 90 prior to taking Broker Pre-License which counts for 24 hours.

Reminder, per the change in DBR requirements:

  • DBR does not accept any on-line courses for meeting the broker 90 requirement. 
  • All courses MUST be taken in person
  • The below list is approved for RIAR ONLY.  Similar titles at other schools do not apply unless the school and course have been approved for the broker 90 by DBR.
  • Broker 90 must be completed all at the same school. 
  • Courses from the below list taken in person through RIAR are valid for 4 years.
  • Sales Pre-License and Lead Paint do NOT count toward the 90.
  • It is not required to have 2 years experience prior to begin taking these courses.  However, you will need 2 years experience with transactions prior to applying for the broker’s license. 
  • Once completing the 90 hours you MUST contact RIAR to receive a certificate of completion for 90 hours.   DBR will not accept individual certificates adding up to 90.
