New Relicensing Education Program Requirement Now in Effect
Rule Changes: Agency and Disclosure is a self-paced online course that is now mandatory for all trading services and rental property management licensees. So far, approximately 42% of licensees have completed the course*, are you one of them?
If not, here are four great reasons to register for the course today:
- It’s the Professional Thing to Do: The course was developed by the UBC Sauder School of Business in collaboration with RECBC to help you understand and comply with the changes effective from June 15, 2018. By completing the course, you’ll show your commitment to professionalism and to providing skilled and knowledgeable services to consumers.
It’s part of your Relicensing Education Program requirements. You’ll need to show proof that you have completed the Rule Changes: Agency and Disclosure course when you apply to renew your licence (in addition to Legal Update). No proof of course completion = no application processed.
Don’t run the risk of delays in your licence renewal process: if you are licensed for either trading services or rental property management, make sure you have attached proof that you’ve completed a Legal Update course AND the Rule Changes: Agency and Disclosure course.
You’ll learn important regulatory information. Completing the course is the best way to ensure that you know how to comply with the new disclosure and agency requirements. After taking the course, you’ll have an enhanced understanding of the changes, and how to inform your clients about the required disclosures.
It takes just a few hours to complete. That’s right – most licensees find they can complete the course in less than six hours. And you have three days from the time you begin the course to complete all the components. It’s all online, so you can complete it at a time and place convenient to you.
