Course Completion Requirements

Participants must take a 25-question pre-license exam to complete the 12-hour requirement, passing with 75% or better. Two attempts are allowed. Once passed, Illinois REALTORS will issue a certificate to the instructor candidate and also submit it to IDFPR.

Failure to pass the 25-question, pre-license with the two allowed attempts renders the participant ineligible to complete the Illinois REALTORS instructor program.
