Brokers: Save 20 per cent on mandatory course

by |

Brokers can save 20 per cent on tuition for REMIC’s upcoming 2014 Mortgage Broker and Agent Continuing Education course by pre-registering before November 1.  

REMIC is taking pre-registrations for this mandatory course as of today; we are offering the course online, in class and in house, Joe White, president of REMIC said. “We are the only provider offering this course in both official languages.”

The course is approved by the Financial Services Commission of Ontario and all active brokers –including principle broker -- are required to complete the course in order to renew their license in 2014. If your license is set to expire in the upcoming year, you will need to complete an education course in order to continue dealing in mortgages.

REMIC offers three ways to complete your course.

For the broker on the go, the online course may be the way to go. It costs $30 (with a 20 per cent discount if you register prior to November 1) and can be completed any time after November 1.

REMIC is also providing the course, in person, in Toronto or Mississauga.  The cost is $50, though the early bird discount also applies.

Finally, brokerages can arrange to have the course delivered to their entire team in their own office or at the REMIC training centre in Mississauga. The price is $50 per student – though group pricing is also available -- and must be arranged directly with the brokerage. If you’re interested, or require more details, contact Joe White directly.

    ...or don't pay and just take the free online continuing education course offered through CAAMP....if your a member of course.

    @Anthony - except that a CAAMP membership is $200+, and offers virtually no actual benefit other than a "free" bi-annual update course. For 2 years of CAAMP membership, I can pay for about 16 years worth of courses at $50/each

    ...you may want to consider taking some math courses while your at it...I don't know if Remic offers them, but hey, you can't beat a 20% discount.

    Hi Anthony,

    I don't think someone will join an association just to get a $30 course for free. We also provide discounts on in class offerings, something the other providers are not doing.
    In addition, we offer lots of value with several bonuses designed to help brokers increase their business, something else the other providers are not doing.
    Having different providers of the course with differing value propositions offers choice for mortgage brokers, just like the choice mortgage brokers offer consumers.

    Joe

    Anthony, you may want to consider taking some spelling courses: your or you're
    Throw in a course on politeness as well.

  • John G. on 2013-10-23 8:44:39 AM

    And, Paolo's math is right! 2 years of membership x $200 = $400.
    Re-licensing courses are every two years, so over 16 years there would be 8 courses.
    8 courses x $50 = $400.

    @John G.

    Thanks for posting exactly what I was thinking. This "Anthony" character is exactly what's wrong with some people in our industry...

    How much is a free course worth? Like they say, you get what you pay for.

    You guys are lucky. BC courses cost $150 each.
