Salesperson Apprentice Education

Texas Requirements

For Those Applying On or After January 1, 2006

A Salesperson is required to have completed a total of 18 semester (270 classroom) hours of education, at least 14 semester (210 classroom) hours of which must be in core real estate courses, by the end of their first year of licensure. 150 of those classroom hours in core real estate courses are to have been completed before the application for the Salesperson license is made (and may be filed along with the application). Please note that this means only 4 additional semester (60 classroom) hours in core real estate courses are required to be filed during the first year as a licensed Salesperson. These hours are known as SAE, or Salesperson Apprentice Education. These 60 additional classroom hours in core real estate for the SAE must be submitted and on the TREC system by the end of the first year of licensure.
