Real estate and broker courses are valid for two years after the course completion date.

Not immediately.  You have to pay your dues.  Some Florida Brokers will require you to be a Realtor.  A Realtor is a real estate agent (or broker) who agrees to work within a set of guidelines that the Board sets.  These guidelines are mainly just good ethical behavior that are more clear and spelled out than state licensing authorities.
