Arizona Mountain School of Real Estate is an Arizona Department of Real Estate licensed school certified to teach salesperson and broker pre-licensing and license renewal continuing education including Introduction to Contract Writing and Broker Management Clinics I, II, and III.

Founded in 2015, more than 550 students have completed Arizona Mountain School of Real Estate’s 90-hour pre-licensing educational courses, and the school has offered more than 500 continuing education classes.

Currently, the Arizona Mountain School of Real Estate is offering its 90-hour salesperson pre-licensing courses online only. Online pre-licensing education was approved by the Arizona Department of Real Estate in January of 2019, it took us a year to help develop an exceptionally high-quality statewide course, and we introduced that course in January, 2020.

Our premier Internet-based course was developed in cooperation with OnlineEd, Portland, Oregon. OnlineEd is a leading developer and distributor Internet-based education in California, Washington, Oregon, Nevada, Florida as well as Arizona. It offers web-based pre-license courses in insurance, lending, and contracting in select states. OnlineEd also provides a variety of certification, continuing education, and career development courses throughout the country.

Our online course is the 90-hour required state license exam qualifier. Like all other Arizona pre-licensing courses, students must complete all 90 hours of education; take and pass a school examination to be certified to take the state licensing test; and show evidence of completing a basic contract writing course before applying for a license.
