Relicensing Education Program
All licensees are required to complete the Council’s Relicensing Education Program (REP) requirement before applying to renew their real estate licence.
The REP requirement is separate and distinct from any educational requirements mandated by the various real estate boards throughout the province.
REP Course and Registration Information
To satisfy the Council’s REP requirements, you are required to complete one applicable Legal Update course prior to your licence expiry date.
If you are licensed to provide more than one service (e.g. trading services and strata management services), you are still only required to complete one Legal Update course. Use the chart below to find information on how to register for the Legal Update course that is most appropriate for you.
Proof of REP Required for Licence Renewal
As a licensee, you are responsible for accurately reporting your REP course completion on your renewal application form. You must submit proof that you have completed the appropriate Legal Update REP course in the last two years. Attach a certificate of completion, or a copy of your education transcript from the course provider (e.g. real estate board). Make sure it includes:
- your name
- the course name, and
- the date the course was completed.
If your licence renewal application does not include documentary evidence that you have completed a Legal Update REP course in the last two years, your licence will not be renewed until proof of completion is provided.
Licensees With Disabilities
In keeping with the BC Human Rights Code, it is the Council’s goal to create an ongoing education program that is accessible to everyone and ensures fair and consistent treatment of all licensees, including those with a disability. Licensees with a disability that would prevent them from completing a REP course may request special accommodations and arrangements. Licensees who wish to request an accommodation must provide appropriate assessment and medical records (including medical diagnosis and prognosis) in order to facilitate the accommodation. All information submitted will be kept confidential and used only for the purpose of facilitating accommodation.
Written requests for accommodation should be made 30 days in advance of registering for a course and must be submitted with supporting documentation to the Education and Licensing Officer.
