We recognize that not everyone can take a class in a structured time frame or in a traditional classroom setting so we now offer online / distance learning that suits your schedule.

Welcome to the Academy of Real Estate's online 60-hour Maryland Principles and Practice of Real Estate course. This course has been approved by the Maryland Higher Education Commission and the Maryland Real Estate Commission and satisfies the necessary educational requirements to sit for the Maryland Real Estate Salesperson Examination. Upon your successful completion of this class you will receive a Ceritificate of Completion and your completion will be reported electronically to PSI so you can schedule your State licensing exam.  This class is designed to prepare you to take the Maryland Salesperson Licensing Exam. 

The entire cost of the course is $245. 

All reading materials are included.

There are no additional required costs.


You have 90 days from the date you purchased the class to complete the class and all your exams. You will need to complete the minimum required minutes for each of the units of the online class and the unit quizzes, the Final Unit Practice Exam online and an in person live proctored exam through the Academy of Real Estate prior the 90 days expiration date. It is important to complete all the course work and the online practice final exam in a time period that will allow you time to schedule and take the final exam in person with the assigned school proctor.  There are no extensions allowed under any circumstances. Once you complete and pass the live exam in person, your course completion will be reported electronically so you can take the State Licensing Exam which is administered by PSI.
