The COVID-19 pandemic has created unique circumstances to which everyone has had to adjust and adapt.  Finding solutions to ensure students can continue their studies and establish their real estate careers as quickly and safely as possible is a top priority for MREA’s Education Department. Below is a summary of the recent changes that MREA has made to its education offerings during the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

COVID-19 Vaccination or Testing Requirement & Mask Requirements

As per the Manitoba Real Estate Association SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) Policy, to promote a safe and healthy environment at REALTOR® place, all Individuals entering REALTOR® place must either:

o   Provide Satisfactory Proof of Full Vaccination; OR

o   Present a negative COVID-19 laboratory-confirmed polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test, a laboratory-confirmed rapid antigen test or a non-laboratory-confirmed rapid antigen test (rapid testing cannot be done at the MREA office but can be facilitated over Zoom in advance).

 

As per the Manitoba Real Estate Association SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) Policy, satisfactory Proof of Full Vaccination or proof of a negative COVID-19 test must be provided to MREA staff each time that an Individual enters REALTOR® place, along with corroborating photo identification (“photo ID”). Photo ID is required in order to verify that the vaccination/testing record being presented belongs to the Individual who is seeking entry to REALTOR® place.

Individuals are required to wear an N95 or KN95 mask at all times while in REALTOR® place.

Thank you for doing your part to stop the spread of COVID-19 and keeping our staff, members and students safe.

 

Exams

MREA has resumed holding in-person exam sessions. These sessions will host a limited number of students at a time, and extensive precautionary measures have been put in place for the safety of students and staff.  MREA does not currently have a set exam schedule.  Students are requested to reach out to the MREA Education Department via email at education@mrea.mb.ca with exam scheduling requests.  

 

Online Registration and Course Content

MREA has made online registration available for most of its courses. Online registration provides immediate access to digital copies of students’ course material as they wait for physical copies.  To register online visit mreastudents.myabsorb.com.

 

Contactless Course Materials Pick-up

Students wishing to pick up their course materials can arrange for a contactless pickup appointment. Please contact the Education Department at 204-772-0405 or education@mrea.mb.ca for further details on contactless pickup procedures.

 

Advancing to the Next Course 

Students may register for the next course in the program prior to completing the current course’s requisite exam. However, you cannot attempt the subsequent course exam prior to attaining a passing mark on the prerequisite exam. For example, a Module 1 student can enroll in Module 2 prior to writing the Module 1 exam, but the student cannot attempt the Module 2 exam until they have attained a passing mark on Module 1. 

If you have any questions about these offerings, please contact the Education Department (education@mrea.mb.ca).
