To obtain a real estate license in Alaska, you need to complete the following steps:

  1. Meet the eligibility requirements: Be at least 19 years old. Have a high school diploma or equivalent. Be a U.S. citizen or have permanent residency.
  2. Complete the required pre-licensing education: Successfully complete 40 hours of real estate pre-licensing education through an approved provider. The course must cover topics such as real estate principles, law, and practice.
  3. Pass the Alaska Real Estate Salesperson Exam: After completing the pre-licensing education, apply to take the Alaska Real Estate Salesperson Exam through PSI Exams Online. The exam consists of state and national portions, and you must pass both sections.
  4. Find a sponsoring broker: Before applying for your license, you will need to find a sponsoring broker who will oversee your real estate activities. A sponsoring broker will provide you with the necessary supervision and mentoring required as a new licensee.
  5. Submit your license application: Once you have passed the exam and secured a sponsoring broker, complete and submit the Salesperson License Application. The application requires you to provide personal information, education details, and your sponsoring broker's information.
  6. Obtain errors and omissions (E&O) insurance: Before your license is issued, you must provide proof of errors and omissions insurance coverage. This insurance protects you against liability for errors, omissions, or negligence during your real estate activities.
  7. Pay the required fees: Submit the appropriate licensing fee along with your application. Visit the Alaska Real Estate Commission website for the current fee schedule.
  8. Complete a background check: Undergo a fingerprint-based criminal background check through an approved vendor. This process requires scheduling an appointment and paying the associated fee.
  9. Wait for license issuance: After completing all the necessary steps and submitting your application, wait for processing by the Alaska Real Estate Commission. Once your application is approved, your real estate license will be issued, and you can begin practicing as a licensed real estate salesperson in Alaska.


Remember to familiarize yourself with Alaska real estate laws and regulations to ensure compliance and success in your real estate career.
