- The primary purpose of the 48-Hour Missouri Salesperson Pre-Examination course is to prepare the student to pass the licensing exam.
- First, complete this course and receive a certificate of completion by passing this course’s end of course test. You must pass the end of course test prior to scheduling and taking the Missouri Real Estate Licensing Exam at the PSI testing center.
- We highly recommend that you sign up for your test date as soon as possible after receiving your certificate for the 48-Hour Pre-Examination course.

#2 Follow our simple “ABC Plan”
