OREA’s Real Estate College Update
OREA’s Real Estate College registered the last student for Course One of the Registration Education Program on April 30th, 2019.
As many of you know, in March of 2016, RECO issued an RFP for the selection of an organization to deliver its new Registration Education Program.
In April 2017, following an extensive RFP process, RECO selected a consortium of Humber College and NIIT Canada to deliver the required educational courses for real estate professionals in Ontario.
OREA Real Estate College will continue to provide quality real estate education for students currently enrolled in OREA’s Registration Education Program until December 31, 2020.
The OREA Real Estate College has made education accessible province-wide through multiple delivery channels, while ensuring that a consistent standard of education is delivered to all students.
Over the years, the College has garnered many awards, including the Education Excellence Award from the Association of Real Estate Licensing Law Officials, the 2015 LERN International Award for Excellence in Programming, and the 2015 Education Program of the Year Award from the Real Estate Educators Association.
I would like to take this opportunity to share important information with you about the transition that is currently underway for real estate registration education in Ontario from OREA’s Real Estate College to Humber/NIIT Canada.
