You will receive a Certificate of Completion at the conclusion of each course and we report completion to DBPR electronically on Monday, Wednesday and Friday of every week.

Must I pass an exam in order to complete my post-license requirement?

Can I take the 45-Hour Post-License Education for Sales Associates prior to getting my real estate license?
No, you must first complete 63 Hour Sales Associate Pre-Licensing education and pass the Florida Real Estate Sales Associate Exam prior to completing the 45-hours of post-license education.

How do the Florida Real Estate Post-Licensing Classroom Courses differ from the Post-Licensing Online Courses?
The difference between classroom education and online education is quite significant. With our classroom courses you will be taught by professionally trained instructors who are not only experts in the real estate industry, but they also understand how to prepare you for success on the exam. In a classroom setting you are able to ask questions, get clarification on subject matter that you may not understand, network with other professionals and HAVE FUN!
We understand that “going back to school” is not at the top of your to-do list, so we make sure you have a comfortable learning environment that is geared toward your comfort, and our interactive and energetic instructors make sure you have an enjoyable experience. Our reputation for high-quality classroom experiences is the reason why we are the market leader in Florida real estate education.
The online courses are geared toward those individuals who are unable to attend our classroom courses due to geographic location, physical hardship or are very comfortable in an online learning environment. Online learning is not right for everyone, but it can be a very convenient way to complete the required education. Keep in mind, however, if you do choose to complete the education in our online format, that it is up to you to determine when and where you will proceed through the course, as opposed to the classroom course where the schedule is already laid out for you and our instructors will tell you how to proceed through the course material.
Please call us at (239) 344-7510 if you have further questions about the difference between classroom and online education or need guidance in making a selection.
I was unable to complete the post licensure education prior to the expiration date due to a physical disability. What should I do?
61J2-3.020 (9) The Commission may allow an additional 6-month period after the first renewal following initial licensure for brokers and sales associates who come under the definition of a hardship case as defined in rule 61J2-3.013 (2). “A hardship case is defined as a case wherein a person desiring to take the Commission prescribed courses cannot, by reason of a physical disability, attend the place where the classes are conducted…The Commission shall require said request in writing supported by statements of doctors and other persons having knowledge of the facts.”
If you are a licensee that has a personal medical hardship and you are required to complete post license education, you may request an extension in writing to:
Division of Real Estate

Attn: Hardship Extension

400 West Robinson Street Suite N801,

Orlando Florida 32801

Please include a letter from your physician stating length of time you have been experiencing the issue and how long they anticipate you will be incapacitated.
Is anyone exempt from the post licensure education requirement?
No. Every Florida Real Estate Sales Associate is required to complete the 45 hr post license requirement.
What happens if I fail my post-licensing end of class examination?
If you fail your post-licensing end of class examination, whether you are a Sales Associate or Broker, you must wait 30 days before you are allowed to re-test. If you fail a second time, you must re-attend the course in its entirety.
What happens if I do not complete the Florida Sales Associate 45 Hour post-licensing requirement prior to the initial expiration date?
The license of any Sales Associate who does not complete the 45 Hour post-licensure education requirement is considered NULL & VOID. If you want to ever operate as a licensee again, you will need to repeat the 63 Hour Sales Associate Pre-License Course and pass the state examination.
What happens if I do not complete the Florida Broker 60 Hour post-licensing requirement prior to the initial expiration date?
The license of any Broker who does not complete the 60 Hour post-licensure education requirement has a 6 month time period from their renewal date where you can revert back to a Sales Associate license. If you do not revert back to a Sales Associate license during that 6 month time period, your license will be considered NULL & VOID. If you want to ever operate as a Broker again, you will need to repeat the 72 Hour Broker Pre-License Course and pass the state examination.
I’m an attorney and I want to obtain a Florida Real Estate Sales Associate license. What education do I need to complete?
As an active Florida attorney in good standing with the Florida Bar, you are exempt from completing the 63-Hours of Florida Real Estate Sales Associate Licensing, but you are required to complete 45-hours of post-license education before your first license renewal.

About the 20 Hour SAFE Comprehensive Mortgage Loan Originator Course

Federal and state laws require that state-licensed mortgage loan originators complete NMLS-approved pre-licensure education at an NMLS-approved school. Larson Educational Services is a Florida-based NMLS-approved school – NMLS PROVIDER ID: 1400171 and NMLS COURSE ID: 1181.

Mortgage Loan Originators or MLOs are an integral part of the real estate transaction. As a licensed MLO, you will be working with mortgage lenders to obtain financing for potential home buyers and you will be paid based on the financed dollar amount. It is a challenging, but financially rewarding career choice.

All MLOs are regulated by the state in which they will originate loans and must be registered with the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System or NMLS. The curriculum development team at Larson Educational Services has developed this course to include the mandated hours and topics and to reflect the body of information required for an entry-level mortgage loan originator.

At the conclusion of this course, you will be armed with the knowledge to legally, safely and efficiently serve the needs of today’s borrowers and lenders in real estate financing transactions. The course workbook combines detailed text, student notes, and sample questions. The course is updated as necessary to reflect ongoing changes within the mortgage industry. This course includes ALL exam preparation materials necessary to be prepared to pass both NMLS exams, including the Uniform State Test (UST) questions.

Key Objectives of the Course by Unit

  • Unit 1: Florida Specific Laws and Rules
  • Unit 2: General Mortgage Knowledge
  • Unit 3: Federal Mortgage-Related Laws
  • Unit 4: Mortgage Loan Origination Practices
  • Unit 5: Mortgage Loan Originator Processes
  • Unit 6: Ethics in the Mortgage Industry

Course registrations at Larson Educational Services can be made by phone (239) 344-7510 or on our website We accept “paid” or “unpaid” registrations at time of enrollment, meaning you can pay your tuition today or wait until you check in on the first day of the class. Either way, your seat in the course will be secured.
