Illinois Broker Required Prelicense Course

15-Hour PreLicense Applied Real Estate Principles


The 15-Hour PreLicense Applied Real Estate Principles course is a mandatory component of Illinois real estate broker pre-license education. Our self-guided online course from IBA Center allows you to study in the comfort of your own home.

Delivery Method

This course is taken in class or via webinar. This is an interactive class with “real world” examples, role play and answers to “what if” scenarios. NOTE: It is recommended that you take and complete the 60 hour Broker Pre-license topics course before registering for this course.

You must log-in to your webinar course via your computer or the iPhone/iPad/Android app. Webinar classes have a live instructor and live class discussion, just like a physical classroom, but unlike Skype, Zoom or FaceTime, the only face everyone will see is the instructor’s. You must stay signed on the entire time to receive course credit. Have questions or experiencing issues? Check out our FAQ page.

If you are interested in obtaining an Illinois broker license, you must successfully complete the 60-Hour Broker Pre-License Topics course AND the 15-hour Broker Pre-License Applied Real Estate Principles course in order to sit for the State and National real estate license exam.
