Having access to state-approved education is important to our members. Illinois REALTORS® stands out from other real estate education providers due to the quality of our educational products and the personal service we provide.


We give members many flexible learning options, including several online platforms to choose from for self-guided and interactive learning. Our live webinars allow students to communicate directly with an instructor without leaving home. Our classroom courses are taught by experienced instructors at more than 65 branch locations throughout Illinois.


Our Education Specialists provide in-house support to students, answering questions about pre-license requirements, license renewal, and more. Students can contact us by phone, email, or online chat, Monday-Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.


Illinois REALTORS® works closely with the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) on license law changes, administrative rule updates, course curriculums and education requirements. Association staff lobby Illinois legislators to protect private property rights and for changes that enhance professionalism across the industry through education.
