Sales Associate Opportunities

We are pleased to provide you with key information about business opportunities in the real estate industry.

The first requirement is that you complete and pass an approved 75-hour pre-license program. We offer this through our school in a variety of formats:

  • Full-day residence class program for 12 days, plus the exam
  • Evening program held 2 evenings per week from 6-9:15 pm for five weeks, which includes weekend attendance, is also available
  • You may choose to purchase a computer course or online program that allows you to pace yourself over a period of 6 months

Upon successful completion of the class and passing of the “exit” exam, you will be eligible to sit for the State Licensing Exam. This is done through a company called AMP. You can schedule your exam time online on With a passing grade of at least 75%, you will then be eligible to return to the testing site and activate your license for a 4-year term.

You will also need to have spoken with a broker of one of our offices and obtained a "sponsoring broker form." 

The license will be issued in your name and the company name. Once you have been active in the real estate industry for two years, you are eligible to take the Broker’s pre-license course. This consists of an additional 60 hours of study, a course exam and a State Licensing exam. When you have been active for three years, you may activate your Brokers license. At that time, you may choose to open your own company or continue with the company with which you are working as an independent sales associate.

Prior to activating your license, you must visit your local police station and obtain a Georgia Criminal History report. It is valid for 60 days, so you could obtain that prior to taking the State Exam. The criminal history report is not needed to take the exam, only to activate your license.

Additionally, there is a post-license education requirement of 25 hours the first year and a further 24 hours of continuing education over the following 3 years. The continuing education requirement is completed during every 4-year licensure term. 
Our commitment to creating the ultimate setting for superb professionals is the key factor that has made us the number one real estate company in the country. We look forward to welcoming you as you build your business as an independent sales associate affiliated with Coldwell Banker.
