How to Submit an Application for an Alabama Permanent Salesperson’s License?
In addition to successfully completing the mandatory 30-hour post-license course, every temporary salesperson is obligated to submit an application for an Original Salesperson License within a twelve (12)-month timeframe. This twelve-month period commences on the first day of the month following the issuance of the temporary license and concludes on the final day of the twelfth month. It is important to emphasize that this deadline applies to both active and inactive licensees. The application for an original salesperson’s license can be accessed on the Commission’s official website at Adherence to this timeframe is crucial, as failure to submit the application and obtain the permanent/original license within the stipulated twelve-month period will result in the expiration of the license. In such a scenario, the applicant will be required to initiate the licensing process anew, starting with the pre-license course.
Is Post-Licensing Education Required in Alabama?

This six-month timeframe commences on the first day of the month following the issuance of the temporary license and concludes on the last day of the sixth month. Please note that the state mandates a proctored course final exam. For individuals with inactive licenses, completion of the 30-hour post-license course is obligatory within one (1) year.

What is the difference between online courses and livestream courses? How do I know which to pick?

Real estate licensing courses are typically designed to provide aspiring real estate agents with the necessary knowledge and skills to pass the licensing exam and work in the industry. These courses are available in different formats, such as livestream and self-paced online formats, each with its own set of pros and cons.

Livestream Format:

Livestream courses are conducted in real-time, usually through video conferencing platforms like Zoom, Google Meet, or Microsoft Teams, etc. In this format, an instructor delivers lectures, interacts with students, and conducts discussions virtually. Livestream courses often follow a structured schedule and have set class timings.

Self-Paced Online Format:

Self-paced online courses provide flexibility for students to study at their own pace. Materials such as video lectures, reading materials, quizzes, and assignments are accessible online, allowing students to progress through the course independently.


  • Timing: Livestream courses follow a fixed schedule while self-paced online courses offer flexibility in timing.
  • Interaction: Livestream courses allow real-time interaction with instructors and peers, whereas self-paced courses have limited or no live interaction.
  • Structure: Livestream courses follow a set structure, while self-paced online courses give students more autonomy over their learning pace and path.

Choosing between these formats depends on individual preferences, learning styles, and availability. Some learners might prefer the structure and live interaction of livestream courses, while others might appreciate the flexibility and independence offered by self-paced online courses.
