After I enrol in a course, can I change my method of study (classroom, online, correspondence)?
Yes, you can transfer to a different study method. If you do transfer to a different study method, you must do so before the start date of your current course. A $50 fee will apply to transfer.
Can I complete all the courses and examinations online?
No. The following courses are offered in class only: The Residential Real Estate Transaction, The Commercial Real Estate Transaction, and the Real Estate Broker Course. All other courses are offered in a choice of learning options. Exams for all courses must be taken in person at a college exam centre.
Why do I have to take the Residential Real Estate Transaction and the Commercial Real Estate Transaction in class?
The content in these courses is best learned in a classroom setting. The Residential Real Estate Transaction and the Commercial Real Estate Transaction courses focus on trading different types of property, and current trends and issues that impact residential and commercial real estate.
