To obtain a real estate license in Alaska, you must follow these steps:

  1. Meet the basic requirements: You must be at least 19 years old, have a high school diploma or GED, and have good moral character. Criminal convictions or disciplinary actions may affect your eligibility.
  2. Complete pre-licensing education: Alaska requires completing 40 hours of pre-licensing education from an approved school. The course covers real estate principles, practices, contracts, financing, and other relevant topics.
  3. Pass the state exam: After completing the pre-licensing education, you must pass the state real estate exam. The exam tests your knowledge of real estate laws, regulations, and practices in Alaska.
  4. Apply for a license: Once you pass the exam, you can apply for a real estate license through the Alaska Real Estate Commission. You need to submit an application, along with the required fees and supporting documents such as fingerprints, background checks, and educational certificates.
  5. Find a sponsoring broker: As a newly licensed real estate agent, you must associate with a licensed real estate broker. The broker will oversee your work, provide guidance, and ensure compliance with state laws and regulations.
  6. Complete post-licensing education: Within the first two years of licensure, you need to complete an additional 30 hours of post-licensing education. This requirement ensures you receive additional training on foundational principles of real estate practice.
  7. Maintain your license: To keep your license active, you must renew it every two years. The renewal process involves completing continuing education courses (a total of 20 hours) and paying the required fees.


It is advisable to consult the Alaska Real Estate Commission's website for detailed information on the exact requirements, application process, and any updates or changes in the licensing procedure.
