RECBC’s Legal Update course is a mandatory continuing education requirement for all real estate professionals.
The Legal Update Course has two parts: a self-paced online component followed by a full-day classroom session. Real estate professionals must successfully complete the online component before attending the classroom session.
Which Legal Update should I take?
Residential Trading Services: For real estate professionals who help consumers to buy, sell or lease residential properties.
Commercial Trading Services: For real estate professionals who help consumers to buy, sell or lease commercial properties.
Strata Management: For strata managers who provide real estate services to strata corporations.
Rental Property Management: For real estate professionals licensed for rental property management provide real estate services to or on behalf of owners of rental real estate.
Note: You only need to take one Legal Update Course during your two year licence term. If you are licensed for more than one service category (Strata, Rental and/or Trading), you are only required to take Legal Update once during your licence term.
All licensed real estate professionals are required to complete the Ethics for the Real Estate Professional course. Whether you are a representative, an associate broker or a managing broker and whether you provide trading services, rental property management services, or strata management services, you’ll learn valuable information about ethical decision making in real estate in this new course.
The Ethics for the Real Estate Professional Course has two parts: a self-paced online component followed by a virtual classroom session. Real estate professionals must successfully complete the self-paced component before attending the virtual classroom session.
Completion of the course is required in order to renew your licence beginning October 1, 2020.
Note: You only need to complete the Ethics course once during your two year licence term. Managing brokers who hold a secondary licence only need to complete Ethics during the two year term of their primary licence.
When you enter your Licence Number in the field, you will be shown the full name associated with the Licence Number according to the Real Estate Council of BC. If you think the name shown is in error, please either double-check that the Licence Number you entered is correct, or contact RECBC.
If your licence number is not found, and you are certain that the number you entered is correct, you can continue with the licence number you entered. Fill in your first and last name in the provided fields. Please be aware that if you choose to enroll in a course with a licence number that can't be found, your enrollment request may be subject to additional scrutiny.
Please select your primary Real Estate Board and enter your Board membership number. This will help determine the classroom components for which you are eligible to enrol, and will help your member board in tracking your completion of Legal Update.
The Membership ID (or member board number) is the unique identifier that has been assigned to you by your Real Estate Board. The name of this number varies from Board to Board. Here are some examples:
BC Northern Real Estate Board: "Paragon® Username"
Kootenay Real Estate Board: "KREB MLS® Username"
Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver: "Member Number (V#)"
South Okanagan Real Estate Board: "User ID for INTERFACE™"
Victoria Real Estate Board: "VREB MLS® ID"
If you are not a member of any board, please select "NONE" from the Real Estate Board list.
The Legal Update course consists of two (2) components: an online component hosted by UBC, Sauder School of Business, Real Estate Division, and a classroom component hosted by real estate boards and external providers. The online sessions are accessed through the internet, and as such, do not vary in location, and are the same regardless of your primary Real Estate Board selection. The selection of classroom session(s) that will be available to you is determined by your Real Estate Board selection.
Please note that the frequency and number of classroom sessions offered varies from Board to Board.
