As summer slips away, and we head into a crisp BC fall with a fresh new school year, you might be thinking of heading back to the books as well. This year BCREA introduced six new online courses for REALTORS®, expanding BCREA's comprehensive online course catalogue.

In case you missed them, or you’re thinking of productive ways to occupy your time this fall as we transition back to spending more time indoors, here are six self-paced, accredited, online courses released this year you might be interested in taking:

  1. Energy-Efficient and Sustainable Homes

    This course is designed for Realtors to learn about the characteristics of a sustainable, energy-efficient home and explore various sustainability programs (e.g., LEED, R-2000, BC Step Code, Passive House) that go beyond the minimum building code requirements in BC. Register here.
