All Condominium Manager Courses and Most Exams Now Available


The Real Estate Council of Alberta (RECA) is pleased to announce that all three condominium management licensing courses through third-party course providers, and the accompanying exams, are now available.

All condominium managers with a conditional licence must complete their appropriate course(s)/exam(s) prior to the November 30, 2022 deadline.

Choosing A Course Provider

RECA advises licensees to carefully consider choosing a course provider. It is important to choose a course provider that will prepare you to successfully complete the licensing exam. The exam is specifically designed to test whether learners have developed the competencies required to provide competent service and to protect the public. Licensees should also consider their learning preferences in their selection process.   

RECA has created a Choosing a Course Provider document to aid licensees when making their choice. We encourage you to review it carefully.

Licensees are also encouraged to check the RECA website periodically to review the course offerings, as additional course providers and courses become recognized.

Conditionally licensed condominium managers should complete the exam(s)/course(s) that have been listed on their conditional licence. To learn which courses and exams are required based on your circumstances, please visit RECA’s Pre-Licensing Education webpage.

Exams after course completion

Once licensees take a course through a recognized provider, they will receive an email with instructions on how to book an exam upon course completion.

Licensees have three months to complete the exam after completing the corresponding course. Licensees are given two exam attempts. Licensees who are unsuccessful after two attempts will need to re-enroll and complete the course before they can write an exam.

RECA deems successful completion of the education requirement as a grade of at least 70% on the course exams.

Exam Challenges

RECA strongly encourages individuals complete the course(s) prior to taking the exam(s). However, RECA will allow licensees with conditional licenses to challenge the exam(s). Some of the exam questions will relate to regulation and RECA’s legislation, topics which those who have never been licensed before may not be familiar with. Licensees are also advised to consider the breadth of their individual condominium manager experience and knowledge before choosing to challenge the exam(s).

If you choose to challenge the exams you will only be permitted one challenge attempt. If not successful, challengers will need to enrol in the necessary courses. Those who want to challenge the exam, should please contact

Examination Logistics

Exams fees are $235, and all exams are to be written at a physical location and booked through Yardstick. More information on booking will be sent via email when you complete courses or request to challenge the exams.

Practice Exams

RECA is currently in the process of creating practice exams. As soon as these are available, stakeholders will be notified.  

Timing is Important

Whether conditional licensees choose to complete the course requirements or challenge exams, it is strongly recommended to start the process as soon as possible. The completion of each course can take a substantial amount of time. Choosing to challenge the exam should also not be left to the last minute, as should you be unsuccessful in the exam challenge, you may not have enough time to complete the course before being able to take the exam again.
