RECO’s new mandatory continuing education program

On August 1, 2013 the Real Estate Council of Ontario (RECO) introduced a new online mandatory continuing education program that provides significant benefits to registrants, and the real estate buyers and sellers who look to them for guidance.

To log into the program visit MyWeb and click on Continuing Education.
 
Benefits of the new mandatory continuing education program:
  • Course content focused on consumer protection, regulatory matters and current industry issues.
  • More convenient access – anytime from anywhere and at any pace.
  • $44 fee per registration cycle for complete access to all course content. 
  • Track progress via MyWeb.
  • Easy-to-use online program built on cutting-edge learning technology.
  • Audio and visual content, interactive elements and real-life scenarios that make it relevant to day to day activities.
  • Online tools and guides that registrants can use after courses are completed.
  • A two-year transition period that will allow registrants to choose between the original program or the new program for their next registration renewal.


Following the two-year transition, third-party education providers will still play a crucial role. The new program will focus on consumer protection, regulatory matters and current industry issues. Registrants will continue to look to third-party education providers for high-quality education that is beyond the scope of the new mandatory continuing education program, much as they did before RECO implemented continuing education in 2000.
Program structure

With the launch of the new online mandatory continuing education program, OREA no longer provides the 6-credit RECO Update Course. However, registrants can still take advantage of the elective credit portion of the original program until July 31, 2015. Registrants who require a RECO Real Estate Update Course to complete either the original or new continuing education program after July 31, 2013 will need to complete the online version via MyWeb.
