Colorado requires completion of six courses and successful passing of the state exam prior to issuance of a license. The state exam is comprised of two sections, the General real estate section and the Colorado section. AREI is consistently ranked highest for state exam passing rate.

The General portion of the exam will test the student on real estate terms and concepts applicable universally. The Colorado portion of the exam will cover Colorado specific statutes and rules, Colorado approved real estate forms, real estate closings and accounting of earnest monies and security deposits. The six courses required for licensing are:
