RECO has selected CamProf Inc. as the consultants to lead the MCE review. In the weeks and months to come, CamProf Inc. will conduct extensive research and consultation with industry experts and stakeholders, including all registrants, to gather feedback and insights.
Who is CamProf Inc.?
CamProf Inc. is a highly regarded, internationally recognized firm that specializes in professional development. They have extensive experience working with regulatory bodies and associations across Canada.
Why is RECO reviewing MCE?
Since the launch of the online program in 2013, most registrants in Ontario have been through the new MCE cycle. This timing provides the opportunity for a rigorous review of the program through registrant survey and focus group input, in order to further enhance MCE for all Ontario registrants.
We have been gathering registrant input on the MCE program since its launch and implemented key enhancements in response to the feedback. In particular, courses are now:
- faster and easier to navigate; and
- balanced so that they provide rich content for experienced registrants, while still being accessible to those who are new to real estate, through extensive background resource links that are provided within the courses.
What kind of enhancements to the MCE program is RECO considering?
The review will explore enhancements in all aspects of the program, particularly:
- the technology platform itself;
- the learner experience; and
- course delivery methods, including the feasibility of introducing classroom options.
How can you participate?
Later this spring, CamProf Inc. will send a survey link to all registrants via email. They will also host a series of focus groups across Ontario for additional input. Participation details will follow shortly, so stay tuned.
As part of the review, CamProf Inc. will also research best practices within education programs that are offered in other regulated sectors.
Education is one of RECO’s core regulatory functions. By participating in the review, registrants can do their part to help RECO maintain high professional and educational standards.
