If you have been licensed for 3 years as a Minnesota real estate salesperson (or the same amount of experience in another state with comparable requirements) within the prior 5 years, you may qualify to earn your real estate broker’s license education requirements completely online. Please review the Minnesota Department of Commerce’s website to find out if you are eligible for a Minnesota broker real estate license and for more specific information on licensing requirements.
Our approved 30-hour online Minnesota Broker Pre-license Course will fulfill your broker pre-license education requirements, and prepare you for the Minnesota broker’s exam.
The course is also approved for 30 continuing education credit-hours towards a current Minnesota Salesperson real estate license. Review Statute 82.61 for more information about continuing education requirements.
Before you begin the course, contact the Minnesota Department of Commerce with questions about how this course may apply towards your continuing education requirements. (Please Note: The Broker Pre-License course does NOT satisfy any required module course requirements.)
After your purchase is complete, the course will be placed in your account, ready for you to begin. With Continuing Ed Express’s exclusive online e-learning technologies, you can learn at your best pace. Our online courses offer high quality content, with easy-to-use navigation.
The course offers text instruction on both the National (Uniform) and Minnesota (State) portions of the licensing exam. There is commentary by the instructor, graphs and diagrams, exercises, and quizzes to help you master the material. You will have the opportunity to go back and review each section separately, and contact your instructor if you have questions.
Minnesota requires you to take the course final exam for pre-license online courses under the supervision of a proctor. After you pass the online final exam with your proctor, we will issue you the course completion certificate. The course completion certificate MUST be presented at the testing center to take the state license exam. If you have your exam proctored with Continuing Ed Express, we will email your completion certificate the next business day from when you take your exam. If you have your exam proctored at another location, we will issue the completion certificate once we receive the completed valid proctor affidavit. Please keep these timeframes in mind as you prepare to schedule your license exam.
Complete details for the proctoring requirements and process are included within the online course. Click here to review the proctor details in advance.
Although everything you'll need to know for the state license exams is in the Minnesota Broker Pre-License Course, we highly recommend our optional Exam Prep Course. The license exams are VERY difficult, and the Exam Prep course will reinforce, and help you remember, key principles you might find on both the uniform and state-specific pre-license exams. You’ll also receive exam-taking tips, and get lots of practice with sample questions to help you prepare for the challenging license exams.

After you pass the broker course final exam, your proctor will provide an affidavit to us, and we will email you a PDF copy of your completion certificate, which you'll need to bring to the Pearson Vue testing site in order to take the state's broker license exam.
