Out of State License Recognition

Individuals Requesting Recognition of a Current Out-of-State Real Estate License

On August 27, 2019 Governor Doug Ducey signed into law ARS 32-4302 that allows individuals who are currently licensed or certified in at least one other state in the discipline applied for and at the same practice level (sales person or broker) and in good standing in all states in which the person holds a license or certification to waive their education requirement to get licensed in Arizona.
