Course Structure

The course consists of four components (including online components and virtual in-class components) which must be completed consecutively in their intended order. More information on the course structure can be found here.

Attendance & Participation

Due to the blended nature of the course delivery, failure to participate in the online components and/or attend the virtual in-class components will result in a rescheduling fee (noted below). Learners who fail to successfully complete the required components will not be eligible for the temporary license that is required for participation in the remaining components. Unsuccessful completion of the remaining components could result in cancellation of the temporary license issued under the Real Estate Services Act.

Learners who are required to make up a component of the course will be required to pay the make-up fee. The make-up fee for any missed or failed component is 30% of the course fee.

Learners required to make-up Component Two must do so within one year of completing Component One. Failure to do so will result in a learner having to redo Components One and Two in their entirety.

Learners must start Component Three within one year of completing Component Two. Learners must obtain a temporary license in order to start Component Three. Learners must complete Components Three and Four within 6 months of receiving a temporary license. A learner who has failed a component during the temporary licensing period more than two times may have their temporary license revoked.

Learners who do not complete the required components within the time frames, could also be required to re-take the Real Estate Trading Services Licensing course and/or examination.

Learners who have failed a pre-licensing component of the course more than two times must wait 90 days from the end of the incomplete component before attempting the course again. In accordance with sections 8 and 9 of the Real Estate Services Rules made under the Real Estate Services Act, learners are required to register for the course again and pay the full course fee, should they wish to continue. Previous activities and assessments in the course will not be acknowledged or considered. Where a learner is required to wait for 90 days based on previous failed attempts, no refund or transfer will be permitted.
