RECA News: RECA is Enhancing its Examination Program


RECA Education is pleased to announce that it’s in the process of enhancing its examination program. This new exam platform will launch on January 27, 2020.

This enhancement involves moving to Yardstick Assessment Strategies (YAS)—a full service professional testing organization dedicated to ensuring examinations are valid, reliable, and defensible.

YAS follows the International Organization of Standardization’s (ISO) 17024 standards and the National Commission for Certification Agencies’ standards that dictate how they provide exam development services.

Yardstick also follows the National College Testing Association’s standards for test centre security, requiring that high stake exam centres follow these standards to ensure exams are secure and consistent.

How this upgrade benefits you

  • increased security
  • improved efficiency
  • higher exam defensibility

How this upgrade impacts you

  • when you complete a pre-licensing course, you will be automatically authorized to write or re-write the corresponding exam. Simply go to myRECA and click Book Exam
  • there will be an exam fee of $150 payable to Yardstick

Plan ahead!

If you are currently completing pre-licensing education for a subsequent industry or sector of real estate in Alberta and are planning to book your exam in the near future, RECA asks that you book on or after January 27, 2020.
