For Immediate Release

Vancouver, BC – January 2, 2020 – With a redesigned Professional Development Program now in place, REALTORS® across BC are working to meet new professional development requirements.

The British Columbia Real Estate Association (BCREA) and BC’s 11 real estate boards revised the Professional Development Program for REALTORS® in BC effective January 1, 2020. The changes help to strengthen education requirements in the profession and give REALTORS® access to more diverse learning opportunities throughout their careers.

“Ongoing education is an important part of REALTOR® professionalism and an example of REALTORS®’ commitment to serving consumers,” says Darlene Hyde, BCREA Chief Executive Officer. “We’re excited to launch a new Professional Development Program that reflects this commitment and offers REALTORS® more choice and flexibility in their education.”

The new Professional Development Program incorporates best practices in professional development and adult learning. Under the new program, REALTORS® in BC are required to complete a minimum of 18 hours of professional development over their two-year licensing cycle. These requirements go beyond what’s required by the Real Estate Council of BC to earn and maintain a real estate services license.

To give REALTORS® access to a wider variety of professional development opportunities, BCREA and boards will introduce more courses online and across the province in 2020.
