Education Updates – IMPORTANT
| February 08, 2019
RECA Education Programs has been busy, with several new course rollouts in the coming weeks and months.
All real estate professionals must take the RE-REP 2019 course prior to renewing this year. The course covers self-regulation, brokerage advertising, PACE, radon, and cannabis.
This course will launch the week of February 18, 2019.
All real estate professionals authorized in commercial or property management must take Real Estate Update 2019 Commercial/Property Management. This is the second part of the commercial and property management update that began last year. You MUST complete this course to retain your commercial and/or property management authorization(s). If you choose to not complete this course, commercial and property management will be removed from your authorizations upon renewal.
There are classroom options available for this course. View a list of providers on reca.ca.
A Financial Analysis Conversation tool will be available to learners taking this course. It is an online forum to keep building your knowledge, skills, and abilities regarding the Real Estate Update 2019 Commercial/PM. This Conversation is the place to post your practical questions as well as your experience applying this knowledge in practice. RECA education staff will respond to questions in the forum. You can access the forum through a link in the course.
This course has already launched and is available through your myRECA account.
All real estate brokers and associate brokers must complete Real Estate Broker Update 2019. This course updates brokers on the new OHS workplace requirements in Alberta, cybersecurity issues, and other practical duties and obligations of managing a brokerage. This update will keep current brokers in line with new brokers who will take the updated Real Estate Broker Program once it launches later this year.
Brokers and associate brokers must complete this course, and the two courses above, in order to renew. Failure to complete these courses will result in your brokerage ceasing operations and your license reverting to an associate license.
This course will launch in the Spring of 2019.
All REP courses are available to all industry professionals. Mortgage brokerage and real estate appraisal professionals can enrol in any of these courses at no cost, but they are not required to take the course in order to renew.
Pre-Licensing Course Update
RECA is developing a new Practice of Commercial Real Estate course. The new course will make Alberta commercial real estate licensees the most educated, well-trained professionals in the country. The new course will begin with an enhanced version of the current course before the official launch of the new, larger course next year.
The enhanced course will be available to new learners and existing learners hoping to gain a commercial authorization in April 2019.
