Hello!I have successfully completed the Salesperson Program Admission Exam.I am now ready

  1. Hello! I have successfully completed the Salesperson Program Admission Exam. I am now ready to apply for the Real Estate Salesman program. One small concern. I am travelling for the next 8 -10 weeks and would be out of Canada. I would like to utilize this time in pursuing the Real Estate Salesman Program. Please be kind enough to answer the following queries in order for me to proceed. 1) Can I start the program online? 2) Does the program entail attending classes online or is just study material sent online which I can study in my own time? 3) How are the exam dates scheduled and can I give my exams also online or do I have to physically go to an examination centre? Thank You.

  2. RECO Communications SEPTEMBER 17, 2019 AT 10:32 AM1. Course 1 can be taken and completed online. There are no in class requirements for e-Learning. 2. Overall, the program is based on on-line e-learning with optional in-class or virtual review sessions. There are mandatory in-class components called Simulation Sessions. Learners must attend these in-class sessions where they will be coached to practice simulated real estate transactions. 3. Exams are scheduled at a test centre where you must physically attend. Exams can only be scheduled after the you have completed your courses.


  1. Ruchelle SEPTEMBER 14, 2019 AT 4:20 PMHow long is the salesperson program admission exam and how many questions and what is the passing grade and if you fail are you gonna able to start over.

  2. RECO Communications SEPTEMBER 17, 2019 AT 10:17 AMHow long is the Salesperson Program Admissions Exam? • The test is untimed allowing test takers to take as much time as they need, but most learners complete it in less than 90 minutes. How many questions? • Learners are tested in three areas, reading, writing and arithmetic. There are 20 questions in each of the reading and writing sections and 25 questions in the arithmetic section. What is the passing grade? • Each area is scored in the 200 to 300 point range. Achieving a minimum score of 250 in each area is required for admission into the Real Estate Salesperson Program. If you fail, can you re-take the exam? • Learners can re-take the exam if they fail. The exam fee applies for each attempt. No limit to the number of attempts.


  1. Jay SEPTEMBER 7, 2019 AT 6:47 AMAside from writing exams, are there any mandatory in class sessions for this course or can the entire program be completed through e-learning? Also, does the entire program need to be completed within a certain time frame or can I work at my own pace?

  2. RECO Communications SEPTEMBER 18, 2019 AT 10:51 AMThank you for your blog inquiry. The Real Estate Salesperson Program consists of a combination of mandatory eLearning courses, theory examinations and simulation sessions. Learners can choose to augment their individual eLearning by enrolling in optional in-person or virtual facilitated review sessions where they will receive coaching and support around key concepts covered in the eLearning modules. For the theory exams and simulation sessions, in-person attendance is mandatory. The length of time it will take to complete the pre-registration phase of the Real Estate Salesperson program will largely be determined by the learner. The program’s eLearning courses are self-paced, and learners may select the optional in-class facilitated review sessions and mandatory examinations and simulation sessions from scheduled sessions that best meet their needs. We are still assessing the average completion times, however we anticipate that the shortest path to program completion, for a learner who does not choose any optional components, will be at least six months. For more information, please review the Real Estate Salesperson Program Learning Path on the Humber College website. For further information regarding the new program please visit Humber’s website at http://www.humber.ca/realestate or you may contact Humber College directly at 416-675-5025.

  2. RECO Communications SEPTEMBER 9, 2019 AT 10:15 AMHi Dave – You can begin the program any time after September 16. This is a continuous enrollment program with no fixed enrollment date.

Can you please eloborate on No.2 here. DO we need to register with any broker? Are there any restricted hours in that one year, can it be done part time? Also, will it be paid? How many hours do we need to complete in one year?

  4. RECO Communications SEPTEMBER 9, 2019 AT 1:37 PMTo be eligible to trade in real estate in Ontario and obtain registration with the Real Estate Council of Ontario (RECO), you must be employed with a registered Ontario real estate brokerage. With respect to pursuing real estate part-time, many salespersons and brokers decide to work on a part-time basis, and there are no requirements under the Real Estate and Business Brokers Act, 2002 (REBBA) for registrants to work full-time. From RECO’s perspective, registrants must be registered with Ontario real estate brokerage, must participate in the Consumer Protection Program (errors and omissions insurance and commission protection) per annum, and comply with and meet educational requirements as set out by the Registrar, REBBA. A list real estate brokerages in Ontario can be found on RECO’s website by visiting the following link and clicking Look up a Real Estate Salesperson, Broker or Brokerage on the right side of the screen: http://www.reco.on.ca. If you have any further questions regarding registration we recommend that you contact our Client Services Department, they can be reached by email at registraton@reco.on.ca or by phone at 416-207-5132 or Toll Free 1-855-200-4884. Our hours of operation are Monday – Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.




  1. John JULY 25, 2019 AT 11:08 PMI finished my pre-registration course in May, 2018. It’s more than 12 months. Can I still register with RECO to become a salesperson?

  2. RECO Communications AUGUST 21, 2019 AT 10:09 AMHi John. Ontario Regulation 579/05 requires that applicants for registration as a salesperson successfully complete all the educational courses that are designated by the Registrar, REBBA, and submit an application for registration within 12 months of their final course. Notwithstanding, applicants must meet all criteria for registration under REBBA. As it has been more than 12-months from the date that you completed the Pre-Registration Segment, you no longer qualify for registration as a salesperson under REBBA at this time. An OREA student who goes beyond the 12-month deadline date to apply to RECO for registration as a salesperson can either choose to repeat the entire qualification process or they can submit a completed ‘Educational Equivalency Assessment’ application to the Registrar, REBBA for consideration. Exceptions may be granted to those whose academic achievements demonstrates that course material is equivalent and has been sufficiently covered or who can produce evidence of effective work experience that demonstrates mastery of skills taught in specific courses. All evidence provided to substantiate an equivalency request must be provided in hard-copy, then validated and fully adjudicated as part of our decision making process. No RECO staff member can provide advice regarding the hypothetical outcome of an Educational Equivalency Assessment application, nor can they render a decision on behalf of the Office of the Registrar. Further information on RECO’s Educational Equivalency Assessment application process can be found on the RECO website at the following link: https://www.reco.on.ca/programs-orea/#exemption Please note that typically there is a 5-year window for consideration of any deviation from the current learning path, but decisions rendered may include course examination challenges, credits, or request denials. It is important to note that each application is assessed based on its own merits, and there are no guarantees of course exemption. However, for your own peace of mind, please note that our current process does allow us to consider any OREA courses that have been completed successfully within the past 5 years, where a final passing grade of 75% or higher has been achieved. I hope this information helps. If you need further information about the Educational Equivalency Assessment process, please feel free to contact one of my colleagues in the Education Department., by phone, at: 416-207-5132 or 1-855-200-4884; or by e-mail at: education@reco.on.ca.

  1. Travis Ferguson JUNE 19, 2019 AT 2:08 PMHello, i was just wondering if these courses are offered through the summer of 2020? As well, is there a start and an end date on each course like a typical college/university course (Sept. to Dec. all exams done at the start of Dec) or can you book you exam whenever you want to like what OREA offers currently?

  1. Dee JUNE 11, 2019 AT 3:57 PMHi, I have a question regarding the new real estate course at Humber.

I heard you can only try twice then your not allowed??? Please explain. Thx!

  1. Jordan MAY 13, 2019 AT 8:56 PMI just signed up for phase 1 and i have no guide as in where to go, or what to do. Please help me. I cant find my way back to my e text book.

  2. RECO Communications JUNE 7, 2019 AT 8:37 AMIt’s best that you direct your questions to OREA for resolution. You may contact OREA by phone, at: (416) 391-6732; toll-free, at: 1 (866) 411-6732; via e-mail, at: info@orea.com; or you may visit their website, at: http://www.orea.com.


  1. Luke MAY 12, 2019 AT 11:18 AMHi, I’m an international student, just wondering if I am eligible for this program. If so, do I have to have PR/candian citizenship to obtain the salesperson license after finish the program? Thank you.

  2. RECO Communications JUNE 4, 2019 AT 7:21 AMHi Luke. Humber will accept international learners for the Real Estate Education Programs. You will still need to apply and meet all the admission requirements, which will be available on Humber’s website (www.humber.ca/realestate) before registration opens. Any transcript, diploma or certificate (from a country other than Canada or the United States) submitted to meet admission requirements would have to be assessed at an Ontario Secondary School Diploma level by a recognized assessment service, such as World Education Services (WES). The cost of the program will be the same for domestic and international learners, as there is no provincial funding associated with it. Information about program costs will be available at registration. You would need to be eligible to work in Canada to be eligible to register with RECO following the successful completion of the Real Estate Salesperson Program.


  1. Matthew MAY 11, 2019 AT 11:42 PMI am taking the courses online through OREA. Do you offer exceptions to the due date of the OREA ore registration segment? I had a family emergency and could really use a godsend.

  2. RECO Communications JUNE 6, 2019 AT 11:32 AMHi Matthew. We’re unsure whether an extension would apply to your situation (e.g. an exceptional family circumstance, such as a family emergency). Extensions are provided to students by OREA are not a requirement of REBBA and not regulated by RECO. That being said, OREA may provide qualifying students an extension to complete the requirements of the Pre-Registration Segment based on medically documented illnesses and/or disabilities. There may be an application, medical documentation and verification required. If this applies to you, OREA will be able to provide you with the necessary information and instructions. Please contact OREA for further information.


  1. Robert Smith MAY 11, 2019 AT 1:43 PMHello I am considering getting my license and I was wondering at what point would I be able to begin selling? Do I need to complete all the courses before I can sell a home? Also is there a way to be subsidized for the course as I am a single father aged 57 and I am still working while studying? Thank you for your help.

  2. RECO Communications JUNE 4, 2019 AT 7:25 AMHi Robert. The maximum length of time to complete the new Real Estate Salesperson Program is being finalized, but program completion time for pre-registration will be at least two years. After successful completion of its pre-registration phase, a learner may be eligible to register with RECO. Learners will complete the post-registration segment within their first two year registration cycle. The program is not eligible for OSAP as it does not receive any direct provincial funding. Program costs will be confirmed when Humber’s course calendar is released later this year.


  1. Stephanie Waller MAY 10, 2019 AT 12:28 AMHow and where do I begin to apply for these courses. I have been having trouble navigating the internet for answers, as I would like to get started on my courses

  1. Ally APRIL 15, 2019 AT 10:11 PMIs the course at Humber offered only online or would I be able to live in residence and study in-class?

  2. RECO Communications APRIL 24, 2019 AT 10:27 AMHi Ally – The Real Estate Salesperson course is only offered online. Living in the Humber College residents is not an option because the program is not a full-time diploma course.


  1. Anna APRIL 7, 2019 AT 5:55 PMHey, how many courses do you need to complete in total with OREA for the real estate license? Do you know the total cost for the courses in total including obtaining the license? My cousin said he paid overall 10k but on their website it says $3,600?

  2. RECO Communications APRIL 9, 2019 AT 2:55 PMHi Anna – The learning path and costs associated for the program managed by the OREA Real Estate College can be found at this link: https://www.orea.com/Education/Course-Calendar-Exam-Schedule.

  1. Jay APRIL 6, 2019 AT 10:03 AMHello, If I do all the courses with OREA, will I be able to do the articling class through Humber? If it came to that. Also was curious, do you have to register with RECO 12 months after you start the pre-registration classes or 12 months after you finish them? Thank you

  2. RECO Communications APRIL 9, 2019 AT 2:52 PMHi Jay – If you begin your training at the OREA Real Estate College, then you must complete all your courses and examinations with OREA. The OREA College is accepting enrollments until April 30, 2019 and you will have until November 28, 2020 to complete the program. You will have 12 months to register with RECO following the completion of courses.


  1. Victoria MARCH 15, 2019 AT 11:22 AMHi, Just wondering about the length of time to complete the program with Humber College. I understand that it is 18 months to complete with OREA. Will it be the same with Humber, or is this a three/four year program, like any other standard post-secondary program? Thanks, Victoria

  2. RECO Communications MARCH 22, 2019 AT 1:58 PMHi Victoria – Thanks for your question. The maximum length of time to complete the new Real Estate Salesperson Program is being finalized, but it will be at least two years. More information will be shared on this site as it becomes available.


  1. Simon FEBRUARY 28, 2019 AT 1:10 PMHi, I want to get my license so I don’t have to pay an agent a commission when I sell my 3 condos. Do you recommend I do this via OREA or the new Humber program?

  2. RECO Communications MARCH 1, 2019 AT 2:01 PMHi Simon – the decision on which program to take largely depends on your preferred timeline for entering the real estate industry. If you want to get started sooner, the OREA Real Estate College will continue to accept your registration for the Salesperson Registration Education program until April 30, 2019. If you decide to begin your training at the OREA Real Estate College, then you will need to complete all your courses and examinations with OREA before November 28, 2020.
