Is there a final class exam?
On January 1st, 2018 IDFPR changed their requirements so students are no longer required to take and pass a final course exam. Once you complete the course, you have fulfilled all of IDFPR’s requirements and are eligible to take the state licensing exam. Students no longer have to pass a course final exam to be eligible for the state licensing exam. That being said, Chicago Real Estate School wants to ensure that you are well prepared for the state exam so we still encourage all students to take what used to be our course final exam as a “practice exam”. This will allow you to test yourself on how well you know the information. The practice exam is offered online and a link is sent out to all students at the end of each course.
Why is the CRES Classroom Course only 35 hours? Will I have to study the other 55 hours at home?
How long will it take to complete the course?
- Online course – self paced with no time limit
- 5-week in classroom course
- 2-week in classroom course (accelerated course)
Students in all versions of the course are very successful and the price for all of the different versions is the same. For more information about our course formats, click here.
