The Real Estate Council of Ontario (RECO) sets the education standards for real estate salespeople and brokers in Ontario – both registration education (for those looking to become a salesperson to trade) and continuing education (for those already registered as a salesperson or broker).

Real estate is a regulated profession in Ontario, and one must be registered with RECO to trade in real estate. To be eligible to apply for registration, individuals must meet specific requirements, including the successful completion of an approved salesperson program. Salespersons interested in becoming a broker of record must complete an approved broker program.

Salespersons and brokers maintain and expand their knowledge by regularly completing continuing education courses through RECO’s continuing education program and voluntarily completing courses offered by other providers.

RECO’s education programs provide Ontario’s real estate professionals with the required knowledge and skills to support buyers and sellers through the buying and selling process from start to finish.
