Changes to REALTOR® Education in Response to COVID-19
Since the World Health Organization’s (WHO) announcement of the COVID-19 pandemic on March 11, the BCREA Education team has been working closely with the province’s 11 real estate boards to ensure REALTORS® will be able to continue their professional development.
We support real estate boards that have chosen to reschedule or cancel in-person course offerings, or switch to a virtual classroom environment wherever possible, as a result of WHO and Canadian government recommendations to practice social distancing.
This means that BCREA Professional Development Program (PDP) courses regularly held in-person within real estate board classrooms are also shifting to a virtual classroom environment wherever possible.
At this time, virtual classroom environments are being hosted using Zoom, an online video conferencing platform. For more information on courses being held in virtual classrooms, and what you need to participate, please contact your local real estate board.
BCREA online courses are also readily available for you to complete at any time, at your own pace. Current online course offerings can be accessed via the links below and offer a great option to continuing your professional development during the period of social distancing:
- Cannabis and Real Estate: The New Paradigm
- Rural Real Estate Essentials
- Competition Law for REALTORS®
- Manufactured Homes: What REALTORS® Should Know
- Strata Talks 1: Depreciation Reports for REALTORS®
- Strata Fundamentals (Online)
- Land Types: Knowing More about the Products for Sale
- Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation: Guidance for REALTORS®
Each of these courses is an accredited PDP course, and all 18 of your required PDP hours can be accumulated through our accredited online courses.
BCREA encourages everyone to practice safety in these challenging times. And remember, while maintaining appropriate social distances, virtual classrooms and online learning environments are available to meet your learning needs.
