New Licensees

If you’re not licensed in one of the industries RECA regulates and you’d like to become licensed, you must:

  • complete the eligibility process to be able to enrol in pre-licensing education for the industry in which you would like to become licensed
  • enrol in and successfully complete your pre-licensing education with a recognized course provider
  • supply a current criminal record check

As a new licensing applicant, you will also be required to demonstrate that you are of good character and suitable for licensing.

Eligibility requirements

To be eligible to enrol in pre-licensing education, you must:

  • be at least 18 years of age
  • prove that you’re able to lawfully study and work in Canada
  • be able to provide an accepted form of valid government-issued identification (ID)
  • have a minimum of Canadian high school education or equivalent
  • provide proof of your English language skills

If you do not meet these requirements, you will not be eligible to enrol in pre-licensing education and thus, you will not be eligible for a licence.
