You need to take a 72 hour class with an approved real estate school and then pass an exam.
As a salesperson you would need to work under a broker. So you would need to decide on what broker to associate with once you obtain your license. After you obtain your license and associate with a broker you can start working as an agent. You will need a subscription to the local MLS and then start developing your business.
Many brokers offer training for new agents. For example, my broker has weekly training classes on all aspects of the business and they also offer a mentoring program for new agents. I'm sure that other brokers offer similar programs as well.
Good luck with your new endeavor!
You will definitely want to hook up with a company when beginning to work as an agent. A small company that is willing to take on an inexperienced agent and willing to train and show you the ropes would be best.
Hope this helps.
