State law requires that you complete an approved 60 hour first year sales course, designed to prepare you for the licensing exam. This course is entitled Unit I Pre-Licensing/First Year Sales. After completing the first year sales course, you would send your application to the South Carolina Real Estate Commission, then make an appointment to take the state exam.
