In order to become a licensed real estate salesperson in the state of Nebraska, you must first complete 60 credit hours of courses approved by the Nebraska Real Estate Commission. VanEd's Salesperson Licensing Package fulfills these educational requirements.
The 60-hour program structure is determined and regulated by the Nebraska Real Estate Commission (NREC). The sequence of courses and other activities below is carefully designed to make the most of your education, and your time.
Please review the information below, or click to return to the main licensing page for other course options:
Instructions, resources and other help are online with the NREC.
Once your application is received, the NREC will send you fingerprint cards to start the criminal background check required prior to taking the licensing exam. Apply now, as it can take on 4-6 weeks for criminal reports to be received in the Commission office.
Send the remaining required documents to the Commission. VanEd will supply your with the course completion certificates required for this step. Please Note: Application forms, fees and background checks are valid for only one year from the date of receipt by the Commission.
VanEd's two Exam Preparation courses are the final step in your education. Passing both exam prep courses is required before you are ready to take the state licensing exam.
You may only schedule your exam once the NREC has received the criminal background report. You will be notified by the NREC when this occurs, or if your application is missing items.
Use your results in both exam prep courses to guide your review.
Congratulations! You passed your Nebraska licensing exam and are off to begin an exciting new career!
You must have an Errors & Omissions (E&O) insurance policy before obtaining an active license.
Submit the following documents / information to the NREC: License Issuance Form, License Issuance Fee, proof of errors and omissions insurance, required information regarding the manner in which you intend to do business.
Receiving Your Completion Certificates
In order for you to receive your Certificate of Completion of educational requirements you must successfully pass (75% or greater) the final exams for each course and the final summary exams for each exam prep module. You can take all exams on the internet, and the exams are instantly graded.
The Certificate of Completion will be made available to you when the two exam prep finals have been successfully passed and we are notified of date you have reserved to take the Nebraska exam.
The following materials are provided by VanEd:
Exams are taken online and may be taken multiple times. All practice / unit exams must be passed before accessing the final exam in that same course. A greater number of multiple-choice test questions are created to help you feel comfortable with the testing methodology. If you do not receive a passing score, you can only attempt the same course final exam twice in one day, in order to give you more time for review. Once the final exam is passed, there are no restrictions on retaking the same final exam.
Two Exam Prep finals must also be passed: one covering the first course, Real Estate Principles Module 1, which tests what you must know to pass the general portion of the Nebraska Salesperson exam; and one covering the material tested on the state specific portion (Real Estate Principles Module 2 and Nebraska License Law).
Exams may be repeated without limitation; however, we strongly recommend thoroughly reviewing the material again any time an exam is not passed before attempting the same exam again.
