Complete Real Estate Update 2017 to retain your licence to trade in residential or rural real estate

Real estate professionals who wish to retain their ability to trade in residential or rural real estate must complete Real Estate Update 2017 prior to renewing this year. This includes all real estate brokers and associate brokers. The renewal deadline is September 30, 2017, so it’s a good idea to get through the course as early as you can. Real estate professionals who only wish to practice commercial real estate or property management do not have to complete this course.

The course focuses on the Residential Measurement Standard.

The course is available free of charge through your myRECA account. Go to the Education tab and Course Catalogue to enrol.

Mortgage and Appraisal Professionals: Although mortgage and appraisal professionals are not required to complete this course, it is available to them as a learning opportunity. You can access the course through the education section of your myRECA account, under the Course Catalogue. Completion of the course counts as four continuing education units in the Professional Development category for Mortgage Professionals Canada’s 2017 AMP designation, and counts for five continuing professional development credits for AIC and CNAREA members.
