In February I was very fortunate to attend the IREM/REIC faculty training in Toronto.
What an amazing experience! There were nine candidates from Vancouver all the way to Halifax . It was so exciting to see folks with CPM®, CLO, FRI and CRF designations all interested in teaching REIC courses to real estate professionals across Canada.
The faculty training course is intense and certainly not for the faint-hearted. It builds up to a final presentation and, let me tell you, there were many late nights of preparation involved. The presenter, Natalie Brecher, CPM® was fantastic. The facilitators Leah Misbin, Josie Hernandez, Leslie Lucas, CAE and Gareth Jones, FRI, SRES were all great.
I feel truly privileged to have spent five days with candidates that see the importance of education as an integral tool in the IREM/REIC basket.
