Real Estate Professionals are required to complete mandatory continuing education courses as part of the two-year licence renewal cycle.

Our courses ensure professionals obtain, maintain, and enhance the skills necessary to protect the public and ensure awareness of emerging trends and issues. Mandatory continuing education helps reinforce knowledge and addresses topical issues, trends and legislation changes. It contributes directly to raising industry standards by helping to ensure real estate professionals understand their role and the rules and regulations.

You must complete the Legal Update and Ethics courses within your two-year licensing cycle.

Anti-Money Laundering in Real Estate must be completed once during the licensing cycle of April 1, 2020 and March 31, 2022. Professionals who took the course between January 1 and March 31, 2020 can use this to renew their licence from April 1, 2020 to March 31, 2022.
