Construction, financing, legal aspects, for Pete’s sake – many industries require real-time training under a mentor. In the real estate industry, however, apprenticeship isn’t a given. Does that sound weird to anyone else?
You are taught a lot in real estate school – how to close a transaction, industry practices and how to value a property, among other things. But the most valuable real estate lessons are learned outside of school.
The Real Estate Council of Ontario (RECO) has chosen the consortium of Humber College Institute of Technology & Advanced Learning and NIIT Canada as the future provider of registration education for real estate salespeople and brokers in the province.
The Ontario Real Estate Association (OREA) has lost a bid to continue providing Ontario real estate licensing education after 2020, sources tell REM. OREA has been providing licensing education through the college for over 40 years.

REALTORS®, real estate agents, sales representatives, brokers, owners, administrators, and other real estate industry stakeholders read REM every month for news, analysis, and commentary on Canadian real estate.
