Real Estate Salesperson
A real estate salesperson is an individual that is employed, appointed or authorized by a real estate agent (often called a broker) to trade in real estate.
Any real estate salesperson operating in PEI must be licensed through the Registrar of Real Estate and be employed by a licensed PEI Real Estate Agent in accordance with the Real Estate Trading Act.

Non-residents or Transfers from out of Province
Course Requirements - If you currently hold or held a real estate salesperson license in other jurisdiction in the past 24 months, you may be exempt from taking the PEI Real Estate pre-licensing course if the Registrar of Real Estate determines your qualifications meet or exceed provincial education requirements.
Non-resident Examination - Passing the non-resident provincial examination is still required to get a PEI Real Estate Salesperson License, even if an exemption from taking PEIREA pre-licensing course is granted. For information on how to register for the exam, contact the PEI Real Estate Association or review the non-resident information on their website.
