54-2022.  Real estate education — Prelicense requirements. (1) Except as provided in section 54-2015, Idaho Code, an applicant seeking a primary Idaho license as a real estate salesperson, broker or associate broker shall furnish satisfactory proof to the commission that the applicant has successfully completed current commission-approved and accredited courses of real estate study as follows:
(a)  Salesperson’s license. For a salesperson’s license, the applicant shall complete a total of ninety (90) classroom hours;
(b)  Broker’s or associate broker’s license. Applicants seeking a broker’s or associate broker’s license shall, in addition to meeting the requirements for a salesperson’s license, successfully complete specified courses in advanced real estate study, for a minimum of ninety (90) additional classroom hours.
(2)  Each applicant shall successfully complete all prelicense real estate courses within no more than three (3) years prior to the date of the license application. However, upon written request for special consideration by the license applicant, the commission may waive or modify the three (3) year requirement at its discretion, based on the applicant’s experience or additional education. Each waiver request shall be submitted with a current certified license history from Idaho or the applicant’s other licensing jurisdiction, which history shall indicate all disciplinary actions taken against the applicant’s license and the status and standing of such license in such licensing state or jurisdiction, along with sufficient proof of education completion.
(3)  To receive credit for prelicense real estate courses, a student must regularly attend and complete the course, and such course must meet all requirements set forth in section 54-2036, Idaho Code.
(4)  No credit will be given for courses taken for audit.
(5)  Credit for completion of approved prelicense education coursework will not be granted when the content of a course repeats that for which credit has been previously received.
(6)  Upon written request from a license applicant, the commission may waive or modify one (1) or more prelicense course requirements based upon the applicant’s satisfactory completion of similar real estate courses in Idaho or another state or jurisdiction. The request for waiver shall be accompanied by an official transcript from the institution that provided the course of instruction, along with a description of the subjects covered in the course and the number of classroom hours involved in the instruction. "Satisfactory completion" means the applicant regularly attended the course and received a final grade of "C" or better.
