All courses are approved by the Pennsylvania Department of State Real Estate Commissions and The Association of Real Estate License Law Officials, known as ARELLO.
ARELLO standards require a high quality delivery system that makes online learning simple. The system we offer is among the very best available today.
All material offered by Realty Institute has been written by experienced real estate professionals who take pride in their ability to present subjects in a clear and easily understood manner. All courses offer audio throughout giving the student the opportunity to read, listen, or both.
The Real Estate Licensing and Registration Act requires real estate brokers and salespersons to complete 14 hours of Commission-approved continuing education during each two- year license period.
Additionally, a licensed broker or salesperson who wishes to activate a license that has been placed on inactive status is required to document 14 hours of continuing education.
Continuing education that is used to reactivate a license cannot be used to renew the license during the same renewal period. An additional 14 hours of continuing education will need to be completed prior to renewal.
If your license has been in escrow for a period of five years or longer, you must retake the salesperson/broker examination before your license can be reactivated.
Choose one of our great packages for salespersons or brokers. All packages conform to the 14 hour Pennsylvania Continuing Education requirements.
We also offer many “ala carte” subjects for the licensee who may not need the entire 14 hours.

Our courses are designed for ease of navigation and learning. Each subject is broken down into individual chapters and the student has the ability to sign off and on as often as they choose. Each time they signoff they will automatically have their place book marked. When they return to the material they will be at the point they left.
At the end of each chapter there will be multiple choice questions. If you answer incorrectly, you will be given another question without having to re-read the material or receive any penalty for time.
There are no graded exams.
Our courses are timed based on state requirements and a timer appears on the bottom of your screen. As you complete each page an arrow will allow you to move to the next one. It will take a total of at least 22.5 hours to complete your subjects.
You will be automatically logged off if you fail to advance pages for 5 minutes or more.
Your Certificate of Completion will be available for you to print and Dept. of State will be notified of your course completion. When all subjects are completed the student will be able to go online to the Dept. of State website and renew his/her license and pay the fee.
Any salesperson who successfully completes an approved broker qualifying course (which requires passing the final schools exam) will receive credit for continuing education for their current two-year sales license renewal period.
