If you meet these general qualifications, move through the following (8) steps to earn your license.
Step 1: Take the 66-hour pre-license education
All new Nebraska salespersons must take (2) 30-hour Nebraska Real Estate Commission (NREC) approved courses. These courses must be taught by an approved school or provider in real estate subjects that are not less than 30 hours of study. Applicants must also take six hours in professional practice and standards, known as course 0003.
All the required real estate education programs are required to have at least one test, including a final exam.
Step 2: Submit salesperson license application
The license application submission must include:
Your application requires information about prior residences and employment history for the last three years, any prior professional licenses, and information about any lawsuits or criminal offenses.
Your license application and its associated fees are valid for one year from the date the NREC receives your application in its office.
The Nebraska fees are:
Step 3: Undergo a criminal background check
All real estate salespersons must submit their fingerprints for a criminal background check. Your license application must be on file and signed at the NREC office before the fingerprint cards will be released to you.
Your application will not be complete without the criminal background report. It takes four to six weeks after submitting the fingerprints for the NREC to receive your criminal background check report.
Step 4: Schedule your state licensing exam
Testing vendor PSI will send you an email once NREC approves your application.
It’s up to you to schedule the exam within one year of your application date. The fastest and easiest way to schedule the licensing exam is to go online to www.psiexams.com. Create an account using the same information on your licensing application. PSI will locate your record and enable you to schedule the test.
Telephone scheduling is also available by calling (855)-834-8748.
Step 5: Take and pass the licensing exam
The Nebraska Salesperson Licensing Exam has:
The Candidate Information Bulletin has exam content outlines and the percentage of questions asked in each topic area.
Immediately upon finishing the exam you will get an official score report essential for your license issuance. All passing candidates have 30 days to finish the licensing process.
Step 6: Submit the License Issuance Forms
All licensing candidates, after passing the Nebraska licensing exam, must submit to the NREC the License Issuance Form signed by your employing broker and you, indicating you agree to be employed by the broker. The issuance fee for a salesperson license is $80.
Step 7: Obtain Errors & Omission Coverage
All real estate salespersons need to have Errors & Omission insurance. You may obtain insurance from any company authorized by the State of Nebraska Department of Insurance. For this option, submit a Certificate of Coverage to the NREC.
The NREC offers a group plan. The fee varies by the selected coverage and the month you apply for coverage. If you use the group plan, the insurer will send verification to the NREC.
Nebraska Real Estate Commission will issue you an active real estate license after it verifies your insurance coverage.
Step 8: Take a 12-hour post-licensing course
After your license is issued, you have 180 days to take and submit to the NREC proof of completion of a 12-hour post-licensing course. Failure to submit proof of completion will result in the license being assigned an inactive status.
Congratulations, you can now enjoy the benefits of being a Nebraska real estate salesperson!

My husband spotted the Real Estate U Groupon deal and he said I should look into it. Honestly at first I thought it had to be too good to be true. But after reading reviews and doing some research I said: “What the heck?!” For the price I really didn’t have much to lose.
I’m so happy I took the leap of faith! I loved the audible learning and that I could literally bring it with me wherever I went! I finished in 3 months! Trust me when I say if I can do it you can do it. I’m a very busy mother of 3 and they all have extracurricular activities, but somehow I buckled down and finished.
I did take a live test prep class at a local real estate school just to cover all bases. I reviewed all the quizzes from all the chapters to prepare. My advice would be to take your time when you test. I was so nervous but I took my time because I knew the material I just had to take my time!
Passing on my first try felt amazing!
I would not be here had I not had the amazing opportunity to complete the real estate licensing course via Real Estate U! I highly recommend the Real Estate U course. In fact my oldest son has decided to take the course as well!

I am currently working as a part time real estate agent for Century 21 APD Associates, in the beautiful city of El Paso, Texas. I wanted to get into real estate to become my own boss and I am looking forward to building a 6 figure income. I closed my first deal in October and looking to close on my second this December.
To obtain my license I chose RealEstateU. The courses were extremely helpful in passing state and national exam on my first try. I like the fact that I could study at my pace and I was able use my mobile to access my courses when on the road or when waiting on doctor appointments with my children.
I was able to go back and listen again and again to the parts that I did not get from the beginning. This is something that wouldn't have been provided by being in a classroom setting. If you are looking to obtain your license just be persistent and don't give up on your dream! I was able to invest in this course and more than tripled my return on the first home which I sold short after I obtained my real estate license.
If this is something you think you'll enjoy try it out and take the risk. Why not risk on something that has the potential to double or triple your income on the side. Jump on the opportunity of getting your license, which honestly is the easy part. And then go all in on the process helping clients and customers get what they want, which is a great home buying/selling experience.

I (still am) a licensed auto insurance claims adjuster for a major insurance company. I held that position for 7.5 years. My family dynamic was changing and myself or my husband needed to be home more for our blended family of 5 children.
Real Estate allows me to regulate my schedule so I can dedicate time to my children and their activities. I will be working for LIV Realty in Frisco, TX and will be working full-time. My goals moving forward are to continue learning, networking and growing towards my own business. I plan on becoming a broker one day.
I loved the ease of the course. I was able to navigate easily and picked up where I left off each day. If I had any questions I received a response back very quickly from the RealEstateU support team. I was able to study and retain information easily. The workbook and the glossary were easy to follow and allowed me to print them to take with me in the event that I was not able to use my laptop. I loved that the course was accessible from a cell phone as well. We had a planned trip across the United States and I was able to study on my cell phone as we travelled 9 states. I have already recommended the course to a few of my friends!

Thank you so much for your help over the last few weeks. I rushed to get through the course because I am so excited to start working in the field as a NYS realtor. I thought this would have a negative impact on me toward the end when I was ready to test, but I feel I retained a lot of the info and am happy with the results.
