Real Estate Council of Alberta wins ARELLO Education Award


Calgary, Alberta –The Real Estate Council of Alberta is this year’s recipient of the Association of Real Estate License Law Officials (ARELLO) Education Award in the Post-Licensing/Continuing Education category for its Real Estate Update 2014 course.

Real Estate Update 2014 is offered entirely online, using a variety of multi-media teaching tools. ARELLO recognized Real Estate Update 2014, in part, because of its mobile-friendly design, which allows industry professionals to complete it through most smart phones and tablets.

Real Estate Update 2014 provides information that is relevant to real estate professionals’ current practice, including material on identifying properties in flood zones and advising buyers, tenants, landlords and sellers regarding such properties. RECA incorporated this crucial information in the course’s content in light of the significant 2013 floods in Alberta.

RECA is committed to providing leading edge career-preparation and training, as well as ongoing re-licensing and continuous learning opportunities. While RECA is proud of its achievements on the international stage, the greatest satisfaction comes from feedback received from Alberta real estate professionals. Survey results from learners after they complete Real Estate Update 2014 show it has an overall approval rating of 96 per cent.

RECA has received three ARELLO awards for its education courses in the past, as well as two Investigator of the Year awards and five communication awards.
