Real Estate Associates Program FAQs

The Real Estate Associates Program (REAP) is developed and administered by the Real Estate Council of Alberta (RECA). Completion of the course and related examinations is one of the requirements to obtain a real estate associate licence from RECA.

What is REAP?

  • REAP is the Real Estate Associates Program (formerly the Real Estate Agent's Program). You must successfully complete this course and pass the provincial qualifying examinations to meet the educational requirements to obtain your real estate associate's licence.

REAP is divided into three phases

  • Phase One consists of the course, Introduction to a Career in Real Estate. You must complete this course and pass the final exam before beginning phase two.
  • Phase Two, Fundamentals of Real Estate, is divided into six sections. You must achieve at least 70 percent on the exam before moving on to the next phase.
  • Phase Three, Real Estate Areas of Practice, focuses on specific trading practices for residential, commercial and rural real estate.
