Course Overview

The Rental Property Management Licensing Course is administered on behalf of the Real Estate Council of British Columbia (RECBC). The course provides the licensing education requirements for those who wish to become licensed property managers in British Columbia. This course combines the general components of the Real Estate Trading Services Licensing Course with curriculum focused on property management. For detailed course content information, please view the Table of Contents and Course Regulations.

This blended learning course allows you to register at any time. While the course is flexible in order to meet the needs of busy adult learners, it provides just enough structure to ensure high quality learning (for example, in order to provide for a minimum level of familiarity with the curriculum and for a reasonable expectation of success on the final examination, assignments may be submitted on a pace that is no greater than 2 assignments per week beginning on the Course Registration Date). You must complete all course assignments within one year of registration in the course and also pass a final examination. Regularly scheduled exams take place at various times throughout the year throughout the province (exams must be written in Canada) and your first registration is included with the course tuition fee. You may also choose to take your exam at the computerized exam centre (CEC) at UBC for an additional fee.

Pre-requisites & Language Proficiency Requirement (LPI)

English is the language of contracts in British Columbia and the language of instruction in the Real Estate Division's licensing courses. In order to ensure that licensees are competent to communicate in English, with other licensees and consumers, the Council has required a language proficiency requirement since 1994. While there are no pre-requisites to register in the licensing course, the Language Proficiency (LPI) requirement must be satisfied before you can register for an exam. For more information on LPI exemptions or the LPI examination, view How to Satisfy the Language Proficiency Requirement. As well, in order to be eligible for real estate licensing in the province of British Columbia, section 10(b)(i) of the Real Estate Services Act requires that an applicant for licensing is at least 19 years of age.
