Practice Exams Now Available for All Condominium Manager Courses
| March 31, 2022
Practice exams for the Fundamentals of Condominium Management, the Practice of Condominium Management, and the Condominium Management Broker Program courses are now available.
Why Practice Exams are Important
Those who complete practice examinations are more successful on the actual examination. There are several reasons for this:
- you become familiar with the examination framework and can therefore focus on the exam question when completing the actual exam. The practice exams are taken on the same platform as the pre-licensing exam
- practice exams let you know the areas in which you may be weak, which enables you to focus your studies on specific areas in preparation for the pre-licensing exam
- practice exams provide you with confidence, which reduces exam anxiety and can lead to better performance overall
As a learner, you can access the practice exams, at a cost of $65 per attempt, at any time from course completion up until you pass the actual exam. RECA has also created an Exam Preparation Guide to assist learners as they prepare for the exam.
Practice exams can be written anywhere, and they have no time limit. When you complete your course, you will get an email with a link to purchase a practice exam attempt, or you can click on “Purchase Practice Exam” in the course table in your myRECA account, under Exam Activities. You will have one attempt per purchase. Once your practice exam is submitted you won’t be able to go back into it.
Upcoming Deadlines & Important Information
All condominium managers with a conditional licence must complete their appropriate course(s)/exam(s) prior to the November 30, 2022 deadline.
Whether you choose to complete the course requirements or challenge exams, it is strongly recommended that you 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 not be left to the last minute, if you are unsuccessful in challenging the exam, you may not have enough time to complete the course before being able to take the exam again.
When you are ready to take your pre-licensing exam, RECA encourages you to review the Exam Guideline for Learners. Remember! You must write your pre-licensing exam within 3 months of completing your course.
Questions on any of the condominium manager education requirements should be directed to email@example.com.
