In order to take this course and to qualify for licensure the South Carolina Real Estate Commission (SCREC) requires you to be at least 18 years of age, have a criminal background check, be a high school graduate or a recipient of a certificate of equivalency (GED), have proof of completion of the 60-hour pre-licensing class and receive a passing score on the state exam.

    Upon passing the class you will receive a certificate of completion and will be ready to apply to take the state exam with the SCREC. Within two (2) weeks you will receive a packet from the SCREC containing the information to contact the company that administers the state exam.

    Unit II: Advanced Principles in Real Estate course (30-hours). Upon passing the state exam you will have one (1) year to find a real estate broker to supervise you (you’ll be affiliated with their company). Once you find a brokerage to sponsor you, send in your application and when your broker receives your license, you are ready to start selling real estate in South Carolina
