Hard Copy License Certificates Discontinued

The division has expanded our online services to allow licensees to download their own license certificates on demand. As a result, the division no longer mails hardcopy license certificates. The certificates will be located under the “initial application” and “renewal” events in the MY LICENSE account.

If you need guidance on how to set up or access your MY LICENSE account, you can access the MY LICENSE instructions here.

Real Estate Business During COVID-19

In order to address the questions/concerns of real estate licensees during the COVID-19 health crisis, the following information is being provided.

Please read the Alaska Essential Services and Critical Workforce Infrastructure Order. Based on this information, the State considers real estate business to be essential, as licensees are necessary to ensure the public has access to housing.

The State believes licensees can easily manage social distancing, and can conduct business within the most current health mandates. Licensees should look to their Broker, and both should look to the state and federal guidelines, to ensure they are practicing within these recommendations. All should practice responsible safeguards to protect the public and themselves, as outlined in the most current health mandates. Click to read the Governor's Mandates, Alerts, and FAQs HERE.

Additionally, please refer to the CBPL COVID-19 Website for the most up-to-date information and guidance, as it is received from DHSS and Boards. This site is updated frequently, so continue to check back for the most current information.

Pearson VUE Testing Centers UPDATE

Pearson VUE-owned and operated Pearson Professional Centers are available for testing in the United States. We will continue to deliver exams to any independent third-party test centers (PVTC and PVTC Selects) who have the ability to operate within the United States.

If you exhibit symptoms upon arrival at the test center, you may be asked to reschedule your exam for another time when in full health.

You must bring and wear your own face mask while at a Pearson VUE-owned test center and throughout your exam. Any surgical or cloth face mask, including a homemade face mask, is acceptable as long as your nose and mouth are fully covered. Candidates without a face mask will be denied testing services. We are unable to provide face masks to candidates.

Please Note: Availability is limited at this time because we are following social distancing guidelines and government guidance. However, some test centers are extending their hours to be open nearly 24 hours a day. When you schedule your exam, be sure to note whether you've chosen a.m. or p.m. Please log in to your online candidate profile to search for a variety of dates and locations to schedule your exam and visit the FAQ Page for more information.
