On past Seminar Cruises we were able to offer the six credit mandatory RECO Real Estate Update (Residential). Due to changes in the continuing education requirements brought about by the Registrar, REBBA 2002 and effective August 1, 2013 the course can no longer be offered. As of that date the mandatory course is only offered online through RECO.


Seminar registration will take place in October 2013. Seminar Cruise participants will be notified by email when registration opens.
