Where to Take the Alberta Real Estate Exam?

In order to become a Real Estate Agent in Alberta, you have to pass the Alberta Real Estate Exam issued by RECA. RECA is the governing body for Alberta’s Real Estate Market; it stands for Real Estate Council of Alberta.

RECA is the authority behind the residential real estate, commercial real estate, property management, condominium management, and mortgage brokerage industries. RECA helps licensees ensure they’re competent, ethical, professional, and valuable to consumers. It does this through education standards and licensing, information and regulatory compliance resources, as well as ongoing compliance initiatives.

Normally, you would expect to take the exam at the real estate board, but that is not the case. In this article, we will look at the different options for taking the real estate exam and what are some of the things you need to keep in mind as you show up to take your real estate exam.

Once you have gone through all the materials, you will get the permission to write. Attached to the permission to write, you will also find a list of all the RECA-approved exam centers.

You will get your booking link for each center, your phone number that you would need to call, and the email where you need to email them to book your exam. With each exam center, you will get the address as well as the room number you need to go to write the exam.

Make sure you go to the correct exam centre that you want to go to when you are booking your exam because you do not want to end up at the wrong exam centre and you can lose your spot to write the exam.
