Real Estate Sales Pre-license Education Common Questions

General questions


What material is covered in the real estate pre-license course, and how can I take the course?  

Course content includes property ownership, land use controls and regulations, valuation and market analysis, financing, laws of agency, mandated disclosures, contracts, transfer of property and mathematics.

The WRA offers the course in several education formats. Students can enroll in the WRA's live eight-day course when available. Visit the WRA course catalog online to see if this course is scheduled soon.

The WRA also offers the course in On Demand format: In this course entirely online, students can read, watch or do both. The course consists of videos with interactive reading. A slideshow accompanies videos to test students' knowledge with quizzes after each chapter. At the conclusion of the course, students will take a practice exam to certify they have completed the course and print their certificate.

How can I prepare for the Wisconsin licensing exam?  

In addition to completing the education requirements, students not already enrolled in a WRA sales pre-license course can purchase access to a simulated exam and/or a vocabulary tool to help with additional test preparation.

What if I fail the state exam? Do I need to complete the course again?  

If you have completed the WRA's pre-license course and failed the licensing exam, you may retake any portion of the course within six months of first completing the course, at no charge.
