Utah Real Estate School....All about the 120 hour requirement!
In order to get a Utah real estate license candidates must first complete 120 hours of real estate education. This 120 hour requirement is set forth and regulated by the Utah Division of Real Estate, a Division of the Utah Department of Commerce.

Completing the 120 Hours
In order to complete the 120 hours, one must enroll in a Utah real estate school such as Agent Professor. Once enrolled students may begin working on the education. Some important things to keep in mind while completing your education are outlined here:
- Utah Real Estate Schools are only allowed to give credit to students for up to 8 hours per day. This means it will take at least 15 days to complete the required education to get your Utah real estate license.
- Utah Real Estate Schools track and record your time. The Agent Professor system is easy to use and students are able to see the progress they have made and how far they have left to go. Students have a lot of flexibility in the course and will not lose their progress if they have to pause their learning and come back later.
- Once you have completed the 120 hours, please keep in mind that in order to get your license you still need to take and pass the state exam through a Pearson Vue testing center and then complete the application process with the Utah Division of Real Estate. Students should apply for a license within one year of completing their education and within 90 days of passing the state exam.
