Recognized Course Providers Pre-Licensing Education

With the passing of the Real Estate Amendment Act 2020, the Government of Alberta tasked RECA with divesting itself of pre-licensing education and creating a framework where pre-licensing education is delivered by third party course providers.

Individuals hoping to become licensed will need to complete the required education, through a recognized course provider. Select the desired industry below for a list of courses and recognized course providers.

Choosing a Course Provider

There’s a lot to consider in choosing a course provider. Prospective licensees should carefully review all their options before registering for any courses.

RECA’s board of directors recognizes courses and course providers that meet RECA’s set requirements. However, course providers have the freedom to structure and organize their courses as works best for their institutional and instructional needs.

The most important considerations for learners when choosing a course provider is that the course will prepare you to pass RECA’s exam to protect the public and to provide competent service in your chosen industry sector.

Courses could vary in number of hours to complete, quality of instruction and materials, course modality—virtual, classroom, or a combination—and more. Not only can these elements affect the cost of the course, they can affect the suitability of the course for individual learners.

What might seem like a great deal financially, could simply reflect fewer learning resources available to individuals.

Education is an investment in yourself and your career. Investing not just money, but time—time in understanding your learning needs, in researching course options, in building your knowledge—can set you up for long-term success protecting the public and providing competent service.

The information on courses and course providers below is intended to assist prospective licensees in researching their course options.
