A Real Estate Agent (sales agent) is anyone who is licensed to advise the public on real estate issues. In most states, to become a Real Estate Agent you have to complete a specific real estate course and take a state and federal exam. Real Estate Agents work under the guidance and the legal protection of their broker. If you are interested in becoming a licensed sales agent in Utah please check out Utah Department of Commerce: Division of Real Estate for the necessary requirements and for further education check out the available courses for new agents.
Whereas to become a Broker, more education is required along with having to pass the brokers exam. Brokers are more liable or legally responsible for any mistakes made by agents or salespeople who work for them. If you are interested in becoming a broker in Utah visit Broker Registration site on the Utah Department of Commerce: Division of Real Estate page.
