3.  Complete a fingerprint Background Check according to the instructions provided in the mailed materials. Ink and Digital prints are accepted. Fingerprinting can be obtained at the Police Station, Sheriff’s Office, UPS Store, KBI, or other fingerprinting services. Digital Fingerprint Services may be available at the Overland Park, Topeka, and Wichita Pearson Professional testing sites.

4. Practice Course. (Advanced Concepts) 30-hour online course. This goes beyond the basic definitions and concepts you learned in the Principles of Real Estate Course. It is entirely separate from the Principles of Real Estate course and is not related to the Licensing Exam. We recommend you take the Practice Course after you pass the Licensing Exam.

5.  Affiliate with a Broker. The license you receive is a Kansas Real Estate Salesperson License. A real estate broker must supervise you. You need to contact real estate brokers (real estate companies) in your area to request a meeting/interview.

6.  Submit License Application to the Kansas Real Estate Commission (KREC). You and your broker will apply according to the instructions provided.
