AREA Professional Development

AREA is dedicated to strengthening the real estate profession and supporting our members in upholding the highest standards of practice. AREA Professional Development provides the tools to elevate your level of knowledge around important issues in Alberta real estate.

AREA Professional Development Program
The AREA Professional Development (PD) Program launched its first annual cycle for 2016, forming a foundation of ongoing learning for Alberta REALTORS®. Each year, REALTORS® will be required to complete professional development course(s) designed to enhance professional core skills and knowledge.

This year's PD Program requirement, included as part of your AREA membership benefits, is a new online FINTRAC course that will take a maximum of 5 hours to complete.
