Hi Karen,
Well first log on to the Department of Real Estate for the State of California. Their website will have accredited classes as well as the details of what is required in order to get your license. There are private schools, as well as Jr. Colleges who provide classroom courses. There is a lot to learn, but if you apply yourself you will be able to do it.
Getting your license is only the first step in working in the industry. After that you will need a very good company to work with who provides worthwhile training and mentoring for new agents. In my opinion, this is the number one, most important aspect. Without proper training, many new agents leave this business in the first year.

I believe I used reschool.com to get my license way back when. Cheap, easy to use, etc... you can do all but the actual exam online.

Online served me very well for just about every license I have: My B1, general contractors, C-47, Manufactured Home licenses were obtained in a classroom setting because I earned them in '86 & 87 before Al Gore invented the Internet. LOL!!,

However, my Manufactured Home Dealers license, RE salespersons license and RE brokers license were all studied for in an online setting. It really depends on the company offering the training. I found Allied to be about the best because they offer online, DVD and one on one telephone consultation whenever you need it.

Just don't forget to contact Laura King if you do decide to go with Allied. You won't be sorry.

Try to find a real estate broker that has a real estate lic school on premises.

You will not only get thebook knowledge, but you will have mentors right in the office to assist you.

This is a great career Karen - congratulations on your decision!

There are many online classes available and many great online resources that were not available back when I got my license 20 years ago!

Go to a local real estate license school, they offer once a week or crash courses. I don't recommend on line classes unless you are very disciplined and a strong student.

Contact Allied School is Irvine. Be sure to ask for Laura King. She's the best mentor you could ever ask for. She tutored me through both my RE salesperson and Brokers license. When you call they'll hook you up with a sales person to get you signed up. But once signed up contact Laura. She's the greatest!
