Understanding the PMIC License

The PMIC license is a step above the standard property management license in South Carolina. It grants current property managers the authority to oversee other licensees and manage their own business. Pinnacle Real Estate Academy’s online self-paced PMIC course is tailored to help you achieve this upgrade seamlessly.

Eligibility Requirements

To be eligible for the PMIC license, applicants must:

  • Hold an active property management license in SC, or have completed the 30-hour property management course.
  • Have passed the Property Management State Licensing exam with PSI.
  • Be at least 21 years old.

The Pathway to Your PMIC License

Step 1: Complete the 7-Hour PMIC Course

Your journey begins with enrolling in an approved 7-hour PMIC course. Pinnacle Real Estate Academy offers a comprehensive online course designed to fit your schedule and prepare you thoroughly for the next steps.

Step 2: Apply for the License

Upon completion of your course, you’ll need to register for a PMIC license with the SC Real Estate Commission. This involves filling out the necessary documentation and paying an application fee of $25 if you have not already done so.

Step 3: Licensing and Additional Requirements

“Within one year after passing the PSI examination, applicants will pay a two-year license fee of $250 for the property manager-in-charge license.” This direct quote from the South Carolina Real Estate Commission highlights the final steps in securing your PMIC license. Once the required documentation is submitted and the application fee has been paid, the 2-year license fee of $250 will need to be paid and then a PMIC license will be issued.
