CompuCram Prepares You For The NJ License Exam
New Jersey’s Instructions On The Subject
For Pennsylvania-licensed real estate salespersons who wish to obtain a sales license in New Jersey, the New Jersey State Real Estate Commission has issued a one-page guide on the topic (below).
How Polley Associates Makes The Task Easier
Most Pennsylvania licensees are interested in the “Second Option,” obtaining a waiver, mentioned above. Polley Associates can assist you in these ways:
We currently offer three “broker pre-licensure” courses to which New Jersey refers. Taking any one of these 15-hour courses fulfills the New Jersey education requirement. They also can be used to fulfill all or part (depending on Pennsylvania commission requirements during a licensing cycle) the 14-hour continuing education requirement for PA license renewal. All have additional value as 1 credit toward obtaining a PA broker license. All are “designation courses,” meaning they either result in or are part of securing a real estate designation. They are
- Accredited Buyer Representation;
- Seller Representative Specialist; and
- Senior Real Estate Specialist.
It’s possible some students have already taken one or more of the above courses. It’s important to note here that, according to a January 2019 conversation with the New Jersey State Real Estate Commission, qualifying courses must be complete within three years (36 calendar months) of application for a waiver. Older courses will not be accepted. Students can choose to repeat an older course, should they desire.
Upon successful completion of a course, Polley will mail you a printed, raised-seal transcript for attachment to your waiver application.
- Find the “New Jersey Salesperson Waiver Application” (cited above).
- Request a “Certificate of License History from the Pennsylvania Real Estate Commission (referred to above by New Jersey as a “Certificate of Licensure). For more information, see this page. The Certificate of License History cannot be more than 30 days old at the time of application.
If your waiver is approved by New Jersey, you will be required to take both the national and state portions of the state licensing exam. If you prefer to study from a book:
