Working Together to Improve Regulatory Education
As announced in July 2019, RECBC and the British Columbia Real Estate Association (BCREA) have signed an agreement that will see the management of regulatory education for real estate professionals transition to RECBC on October 1, 2019. Through this agreement, RECBC will increase its oversight, control and direct involvement in the development and instruction of the Legal Update courses and Applied Practice Course, as outlined in the Raising Standards of Regulatory Education White Paper published in 2018. RECBC is committed to continuing to work in partnership with real estate boards, UBC and course instructors to ensure we maintain high standards for regulatory education.
Both RECBC and BCREA are focused on ensuring that the changeover is a smooth one for BC’s real estate professionals. The two organizations have worked closely for months to plan the transition and minimize potential disruption.
In fact, we are very pleased to tell you we will be welcoming key members of the Learner Support team from BCREA, who will be joining RECBC this fall, providing registration support, scheduling courses, and working with instructors.
Here’s what else you can expect beginning this October:
- All information on regulatory education courses will transfer from BCREA’s website to RECBC’s site, including course schedules and registration links.
- Registration processes will not change, as RECBC will continue to use the same registration system as previously.
- For answers to questions or support with registration after October 1, contact RECBC directly.
- In-class sessions will continue to be hosted in familiar locations, led by experienced and knowledgeable instructors.
Look for further details, including online links, registration support emails and phone numbers, coming in September.
RECBC is committed to ensuring the ongoing excellence of regulatory education.
Throughout August and September, please continue to visit the BCREA website to register for Legal Update or Applied Practice courses.
