Principles & Practices of Real Estate for Maryland Salespersons
Prepare to Succeed. Our real estate pre-licensing course has been approved by the Maryland Higher Education Commission and the Maryland Real Estate Commission and satisfies the necessary educational requirements to sit for the Maryland Real Estate Salesperson Examination. The objective of the course is to familiarize the student with the basic principles involved in the sale, purchase, lease, ownership and transfer of real estate from the contractual, financial and agency perspectives of real estate transactions and Maryland Real Estate Law. A course exam must be passed before a certificate of successful completion can be issued. All 60 classroom hours must be attended. Upon successful completion of the course, students will be given a “Certificate of Completion” which is required to sit for the Maryland State PSI exam. Tuition is $190.
The Academy also offers an optional eight hour session consisting of a review class and practical exercises in preparation for the State PSI examination. The cost for the exam prep class is $50. Individual tutoring is also available.
