Re-licensing Education for Real Estate Professionals

Know which courses you need to complete by September 30, 2019

There are mandatory courses for real estate professionals

All professionals practicing in the real estate industry must complete re-licensing education prior to renewing their licence in September. Which courses you must complete depends on your licence class and your sector authorizations. See below for details.

There are no mandatory courses for mortgage and real estate appraisal professionals

However, RECA Education Programs has designed courses that benefit all industry professionals and ensure that our industry professionals are the most-educated, well-trained professionals in the country. Therefore, mortgage professionals are free to take the Real Estate Update 2019 (All Real Estate Professionals) course listed below, should they choose.

IMPORTANT: All real estate brokers and real estate associate brokers must complete three courses this year:

  • Real Estate Update 2019 (Real Estate Brokers)
  • Real Estate Update 2019 (All Real Estate Professionals)
  • Real Estate Update 2019 (Commercial/Property Management)

If you do not complete all three courses above, you cannot renew your licence. If you are broker, you will have to cease your brokerage. In either case, you can reinstate your authorization as a real estate associate, provided you complete the Real Estate Update 2019 (All Real Estate Professionals) course. If you do not complete the Real Estate Update 2019 (Commercial/Property Management) course, you will no longer be authorized in the commercial and property management sectors.
