Your decision to undertake a career in real estate merits very careful consideration. Before you register for this course, you are advised to read the Saskatchewan Real Estate Commission’s Real Estate as a Professional Career information.
The Commercial Real Estate as a Professional Career Course is administered on behalf of the Saskatchewan Real Estate Commission (SREC). The course provides part of the registration education requirements for those who wish to become a licensed registrant as a salesperson in Saskatchewan, and is designed to provide an introduction to the unique knowledge and skills required for commercial real estate professionals. For detailed course content and administration 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, students will need to keep in mind the requirement to complete all courses and exams within two years of registration on the Phase 1 course. In other words, you must complete all Phase 1 and Phase 2 courses in your chosen stream within two years of initial registration. Regularly scheduled exams take place at various times throughout the year throughout the province (exams must be written in Canada) and your first written examination registration is included with the course tuition fee. Also note that you have 2 years from the date you purchase your Phase 1 course to become registered with a brokerage of your choice.

Accommodation for Students with Disabilities
The Real Estate Division's goal is to ensure fair and consistent treatment of all students, including students with a disability, in accordance with their distinct needs and in a manner consistent with academic principles. UBC Centre for Accessibility works in partnership with the Real Estate Division and provides support on issues of accessibility for people with disabilities. Examination accommodations enable you to demonstrate your knowledge of the course materials in cases where a disability may impact your ability to access exams under standard conditions.
Students who may have an on-going disability or medical condition that requires accommodation must contact UBC Centre for Accessibility by telephone: +1 604.822.5844 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Examination accommodation must be approved by the Centre for Accessibility and an accommodation letter must be received by the Real Estate Division prior to examination registration. As well, registration must be received by the Real Estate Division no later than six weeks prior to the examination date.

English Language Proficiency Requirements
Yes, the English Language Proficiency Requirement must be completed prior to examination registration, however if registration is your intention we strongly recommend that you consider satisfying the ELPR prior to course registration. For further information, please view the How to Satisfy the English Language Proficiency Requirement (ELPR) – Saskatchewan Real Estate Commission webpage.
All Phase 1 – Real Estate as a Professional Career Course students must satisfy the English Language Proficiency Requirement (ELPR)
The purpose of the ELPR is to provide information about an individual student's competency in English.
Information on the CELPIP-G test can be found on CELPIP's website.
Information on exemptions from the English Language Proficiency Requirement can be found on the English Language Proficiency Requirement webpage.
Official copies of transcripts from the educational institution can be sent directly to the Real Estate Division office.
Course Assignment Issues
Depending on the course, students are required to submit and pass multiple choice and written assignments in order to be eligible to register for the final exam. These assignments ensure that students are reviewing the course materials and provide feedback on their level of understanding.
The Phase 1 and Phase 3 Course Examinations are three hours in length and contain 100 questions in a multiple choice format, each worth one mark. All Phase 2 Examinations will be two hours in length and contain 60 questions in a multiple choice format.
Seventy (70) percent is a passing grade. A passing grade sets the minimum level of performance needed to practice in a profession, as determined by the regulatory body. The passing grade needed must be high enough to protect the public but not so high as to unreasonably limit the number of those who wish to practice.
No, this is not true. The pass rate for each sitting of the exam varies, however, the majority of students who write the exam will pass. The UBC Real Estate Division and the Saskatchewan Real Estate Commission do not try to limit the number of students who pass the exam - they are only concerned with the fact that those who do pass the exam have the prerequisite knowledge to be likely to not harm the public.
