Real estate professionals now have the opportunity to gain a comprehensive understanding of the Phase 2 legislative reforms through a new Continuing Education (CE) course. This course focuses on how the changes will impact the day-to-day operations of real estate agents and their interactions with buyers and sellers.
The course covers a range of topics that are essential for real estate professionals to navigate the evolving landscape of their industry. These topics include relationships when trading in real estate, representation, content of representation agreements, and disclosures, consents, and acknowledgements, among others. By acquiring knowledge in these areas, real estate agents can ensure they are up to date with the latest regulations and can provide the highest level of service to their clients.
One of the significant advantages of this new course is its early release, allowing agents to complete it before the changes take effect on December 1, 2023. By taking the course in advance, agents can fulfill their 2024 Update Course requirements and stay ahead of the curve. Even if an agent’s renewal date falls after January 1, 2024, they will have access to the new learning path after they renew, which will include the 2024 Update Course.
Accessing the course is simple. Agents can log into their MyWeb account for the CE program and navigate to the CE site. From there, they can select the “Learning Record” tab to view all the courses they are registered in or have already completed. The 2024 Update Course: Introduction to TRESA will be listed as a mandatory offering at the top of the course list.
For any inquiries or further assistance, agents can reach out to the email address [email protected]. The Real Estate Council of Ontario (RECO) is dedicated to supporting agents throughout their professional development journey.
