PROCEDURES FOR LICENSING
In the District of Columbia, a student is required by law to take a classroom course entitled “Principles & Practice of Real Estate.”
The tuition and length of this course will vary with the institution. This course is given by the Long & Foster Institute of Real Estate, Inc. and
covers all the technical aspects of real estate--math, law and theory.
Various schedules are offered by the Long & Foster Institute of Real Estate for the Principles and Practice of Real Estate classes in
an effort to accommodate the student’s schedule and learning pace. This course covers all the material required by the District of Columbia,
as well as all the information the student needs to study for the licensing examination. Our course is principally for those planning to take the
examination and become licensed real estate agents; however, many people take it simply for their own information and use.
Once the student passes the Principles Course and the DC examination, they must affiliate with a real estate firm (such as
Long & Foster) in order to have their license activated. At that point, should the student choose to affiliate with Long & Foster, they will join
our new agent training program, STAR BUILDERS, which will teach them the practical aspects of listing and selling properties. Following
the classroom and field training, they will be fully prepared to launch into a successful real estate career.
For further questions, please call our registrar at (202) 237-9695, or 1-800-543-3365, or any of our branch managers.
