Please note: RECA is in the process of divesting itself of all licensing education before December 1, 2022. Get the latest information on the divestment process. Until the divestment process is complete, all current pre-licensing requirements remain in effect.
Pre-licensing education is a serious time and financial commitment.
Each industry has its own pre-licensing program you must complete before you can apply for a licence. Please review the initial eligibility requirements before you read further.

The Mortgage Associates Program (MAP) consists of the Fundamentals of Mortgage Brokerage course and the Practice of Mortgage Brokerage course.
RECA offers free practice exams for learners who have completed a pre-licensing course. Once you complete a course, you will see a Practice Exam link at the end of the course in the Moodle education platform. You may have to scroll to the bottom of the page. You can access the practice exam at any time from when you complete that course up until you pass the actual exam.
RECA practice exams give you the confidence to know you are ready for the real exam, and reflect the real exam experience. Practice exams are free for learners. Do not be misled by others offering practice exams. Using RECA practice exams means you are getting a practice exam from the actual exam provider.
