Ontario’s re-licensing race just got more interesting, with industry trainer REMIC introducing a course loaded with extras and for as little as $30 – an offer designed to challenge CAAMP’s own free online invitation to members.

    CAAMP moved in the right direction by offering re-licensing course free of cost for the members. Why will its members go anywhere?

    Finally someone get's it. I'm a CAAMP member, and I might take this course anyways. Where can you get a customized video for less than $500? I appreciate CAAMP giving the course for free, but that doesn't help me grow my business.

    I think that this is an indication that this re-licensing course that FSCO has made mandatory for us, is not being taken seriously.

    Why are the course providers twisting this into a competition on who can gets the most students (online or in class).

    Its refreshing to see REMIC come out and offer the re-licensing course to the broker community.
    REMIC is focused to help grow our business by offering the free videos.
    We as mortgage brokers such take the re-licensing courses seriously since we should look upon ourselves as professionals and REMIC by offering this provides us the tools

    i applaud the REMIC offer, i don't see this as a competition for attracting students or course participants, but more as a clear example of an industry participant focused on really adding value to our profession rather than focusing on $'s.
    well done REMIC!

    I think the free offer makes this a bit of a joke and cheapens the industry somewhat. Why would agents not renew if the course is free? As a real estate broker we must take a 6 hr mandatory update every two yrs and pay close to $100 for it. If we really want to clean up the industry a fee for the course would be more effective .

    I took some courses via REMIC and I find Joe White and his team are very good and seasoned business instructors. Eventhough, I am a CAAMP member, I will still take on the REMIC courses to renew my license in 2012, it does not matter whether I have to pay or free, it is a FSCO requirement for us to renew our license and if we are serious about our profession, the costs should not have any impact.
