Looking for a new career?

Real estate agents are business owners. They have the freedom to set their own hours and goals for owning a successful business.

To qualify for an Illinois Real Estate Broker License in the State of Illinois, you must be at least 21 years old, a high school graduate or equivalent (G.E.D.), successfully complete the required 90 hours of coursework, and pass the state licensing exam.

Illinois REALTORS Licensing and Training Center, Keller Williams Realty, Champaign Branch is hosting the 45-hour classroom experience! This is the second half of the 90-hour Broker Pre-License course requirement.

Our course is for students who would like to complete the 90-hour Broker Pre-license course in a blended format. 45 hours of home study followed by 45 hours of classroom study.
