What is the Salesperson Registration Education Program Learning Path?

Pre-registration education courses are offered by the Ontario Real Estate Association Real Estate College (OREA) on behalf of RECO. OREA stopped accepting enrollment in the pre-registration courses effective May 1, 2019.

Learners completing their pre-registration or articling courses with OREA must complete all courses and exams prior to March 13, 2021.

These courses must be completed in the order listed below.

RECO Education Pre-Registration Courses


After successfully completing these courses, you have 12 months from the completion date of your last course exam to apply for registration as a salesperson with RECO.

Registrants who have already completed their articling requirements with OREA will not be affected, since they have already completed their registration education requirements.

Registrants who are within their first registration cycle must complete their articling course requirement with OREA prior to either March 13, 2021 or their registration renewal date (whichever date comes first).

What do I need to do after I am registered with RECO?

Once your registration has been approved, you must complete an additional education course from those listed below, within your first two-year registration cycle.

RECO Education Articling Courses


If you enrolled in the pre-registration education courses before April 1, 2016, in addition to one elective, you will need to complete The Commercial Real Estate Transaction or The Residential Real Estate Transaction (not taken in pre-registration) and Real Property Law courses.

Articling education courses are offered by the Ontario Real Estate Association Real Estate College (OREA) on behalf of RECO.

NOTE: If you complete your pre-registration education through OREA, you will also need to complete your articling courses with OREA.
