Yes! Passit IS NOT a replacement for your course materials. It is designed to be used together with your course to improve your understanding and challenge your ability to apply the concepts covered. Skimming the course or relying solely on someone else’s notes without actually reading the program materials is shortsighted. The courses are significant in size but are readable if you give yourself enough time. We recommend one module per day. Check out the Passit Power Plan on your Passit study guide main menu for detailed tips and study strategies. Each guide includes over 550 MCQs designed specifically to challenge your knowledge and understanding of the course content. They are organized by module, which means you can tackle new questions for each module. Aim for a score well above 80%.

In 2021 and 2022 numerous real estate registrations were voided/terminated by RECO after a detailed investigation involving academic misconduct; i.e., buying/selling exam questions, exam cheating, etc. It is unclear whether any of these individuals would be allowed to reapply to Humber or be registered in the future by RECO. Humber made it clear that academic misconduct would not be tolerated:

"Additional cases may result in the rescinding of a learner’s program credential or completion status with the corresponding notification to RECO, as required by policy."
"Humber will continue to review and monitor previous, current and future exams, and will address any cases of suspicious behaviour or learner misconduct on an individual basis."

Be very wary of anyone promising actual exam questions, requesting strange payment arrangements, messaging privately or arranging offline meetings. You could be setting yourself up for a Humber credential rescission, or RECO registration refusal/termination or other legal action. Govern yourself accordingly!

Yes! All of our guides are monitored, updated and expanded to reflect Humber's most current course materials and industry specific changes that occur frequently. The accuracy and effectiveness of our study guides are top priorities!
Each module has a varying number of Passit questions available. This fluctuates as it depends on the length and complexity of the module and updates/additions/deletions that occur on a regular basis. The Passit application remembers which questions you have answered and endeavours to provide you with new questions before repeats. Overall, we recommend not focusing on answering every possible question but instead taking the time to carefully read and understand all answer feedback, explanations, Topic Tips and relevant topics within the course materials. As every exam is different, this strategy will help ensure you're learning, not memorizing, and can tackle any question on exam day.

Becoming a Real Estate Salesperson

To sell real estate in Ontario you must complete these steps:

Here's a helpful infographic that summarizes the process. Passit offers companion online study guides for each real estate exam in the program.

To apply for registration with RECO as a real estate salesperson in Ontario, you must first complete the pre-registration program at Humber College. With diligent study, students can complete the program within 6 – 9 months. The program must be completed within 2 years. The Real Estate Salesperson Program Learning Path highlights the courses and exams required. Passit offers companion online study guides for each real estate exam in the program.

The minimum cost to complete the educational requirements to become registered as a real estate salesperson in Ontario is currently $4,160. Once the education component is complete you must also consider the following start-up costs:

  • RECO Registration Application: $590
  • RECO Insurance Fee: $475
  • Costs to Join Organized Real Estate (e.g., real estate board, OREA, CREA). These vary by area and are subject to change. Here are the current fees if you elected to join the Toronto Regional Real Estate Board, as an example:
    • Entrance Fee (One-Time): $460
    • Membership (Annual): $680
    • OREA & CREA Entrance Fees (One-Time): $400
    • OREA & CREA Membership (Annual): $420
      The above fees are subject to HST.
  • Additional costs to consider: advertising, phone, car, computer, signage, website development, etc.

Do I have to join a real estate brokerage to register with RECO?

Yes, the RECO salesperson application form requires the brokerage name, registration number and the broker of record's (or other authorized individual's) signature. You can connect with a brokerage at any time. We recommend researching brokerages early, as many offer assistance for real estate students, and this can help to fast track your first year. Examples include:

  • Access to Training, Seminars and Brokerage Events
  • Pre-Registration Jobs, e.g., Unlicensed Assistants
  • Guidance and Mentoring

Use Passit Scout to easily research and connect with brokerages in your area that are seeking new salespeople.

Once I finish the real estate courses, do I have to register with RECO right away?

No. You have one year to register with RECO upon completion of the pre-registration phase.

Can I work full time while completing the real estate courses?

Yes. The majority of the real estate education program is self-directed e-learning, which means you can complete the courses at your own pace and schedule. Once you begin the program you have two years to complete the pre-registration phase. There are two mandatory simulation sessions that must be attended. These sessions can be scheduled on weekdays or weekends. Due to COVID-19, these sessions are currently only offered via Zoom, which means you attend them from home. Simulation sessions are 9–5 and require your active participation. Simulation #1 is a five-day program and Simulation #2 is a four-day program. Passit offers companion online study guides for each real estate exam in the program.

What do I need to apply to the Real Estate Salesperson Program at Humber College?

You will need to provide a Candian secondary school diploma, GED certificate or an acceptable equivalent credential. The application process is entirely online and takes less than 10 minutes to complete. Getting started in the program is a three-step process, here is a breakdown of the steps.

What are the minimum requirements to become a real estate salesperson in Ontario?

To apply for registration as a real estate salesperson with RECO you must:

  • Complete the pre-registration phase of the Real Estate Salesperson Program (previously offered by OREA College, now offered exclusively by Humber College);
  • Be 18 years of age and a resident of Canada;
  • Obtain a Criminal Record & Judicial Matters Check (either via Commissionaires or Frontier One); and
