The purpose of this certificate is to prepare a student to take the Real Estate Salesperson licensing examination. The license is required of individuals who conduct licensed real estate activities as described by Real Estate Law in California. Licensed Real Estate Salespersons work under the supervision of a licensed broker.

Salespersons in real estate are generally employed in real estate offices serving the general public. However, some agents secure employment with commercial enterprises operating in the real estate industry (e.g., developers, government agencies, escrow companies, loan officer, mortgage banker, property manager, etc.)
