Fundamentals of Real Estate (registrants as of May 1, 2013)
Introduction to a Career in Property Management*
Available Through AREA:
*Individuals wishing to conduct only property management activities are required to complete AREA or RECA's Fundamentals of Real Estate in REAP and the Introduction to a Career in Property Management offered through RECA. Those wishing to be a real estate associate but not conduct property management activities do not need to complete the Introduction to a Career in Property Management.
Phase 3 of the Real Estate Associates Program contains some material that is no longer up to date. In the past, AREA has developed and delivered this program on behalf of the Real Estate Council of Alberta (RECA), although RECA has always approved the content.
Currently, the Real Estate Associates Program is in transition and the development and delivery is moving from AREA to RECA. As the transition proceeds, RECA will revise and enrich the current content.
You must complete the Introduction to a Career in Real Estate before beginning the Fundamentals of Real Estate.
You must complete Fundamentals of Real Estate (Phase 2) and achieve a minimum of 70% on the exam before progressing to Phase 3.
REAP Fundamentals of Real Estate (Phase 2) and Phase 3 must be completed within 18 months from the date of registration in Fundamentals of Real Estate.
