The courses consist of a series of lessons, each presenting a comprehensive learning module for a specific topic. Each lesson begins by specifying assigned and recommended reading, outlining learning objectives, and then the instructor’s comments. The lessons end with review and discussion questions and then either a multiple choice quiz or a written assignment. As well there are supplementary materials online, including videos, links to informative websites, and additional readings. The assignments are completed at your own pace, there are no due dates – the only requirement is that the assignments and project be submitted within a year of enrollment.
CPD 891: There are five lessons, each ending with a 20-question multiple choice assignment. There is a written project, which is a practical research exercise that goes beyond the course materials. The final examination is written at Real Estate Division examination centres and consists of both multiple choice, short answer, and essay questions.
CPD 899: This is a guided case study course that walks students through the process of creating a reserve fund study report. The initial lessons provide foundational knowledge on writing, research, and critical thinking. The later lessons break the reserve fund planning process into several steps. In each lesson, the student completes one section of the reserve fund study, submits it for grading, and receives expert feedback on this work. The final project accumulates these assignments into a comprehensive reserve fund report.
