The Real Estate Division administers examinations on behalf of professional organizations across Canada, as well as for its own programs. Exams are available for Credit Programs at numerous centres across North America and abroad.
The Real Estate Division is actively monitoring the requirements of various governments and health authorities regarding physical distancing. In-person examinations at our existing exam centres are not possible at this time. Once distancing measures are relaxed and appropriate size gatherings are allowed, we will determine if it is feasible to hold in-person exams at all of our centres across the country. As of today however, due to the physical distancing requirements, as well as the ability to book exam centres and staff each exam site, in-person exams are not available for the December and February exam dates. Students should plan for their exams to take place online. For more information on online exams, please see the Online Exams webpage.
