Step 4: Obtain Certified Criminal Record Check
You must provide RECA with an acceptable certified criminal record check (CCRC). How to obtain a CCRC is found here. As the CCRC is only valid for 6 months, you can start the application process for your CCRC when you are close to completing the course.
Please note that you have only one year to become licensed from the date of your successfully completed final exam.
Step 6: Select Broker
Research, interview and select a mortgage brokerage that best suits your goals.
Step 7: Submit Licence Application
Once RECA has advised you that it has received your CCRC, you must complete a licensing application through your broker who can register you with the brokerage.
Note: If you have a criminal record, bankruptcy or disciplinary action by an organization, the executive director of RECA will need to determine your suitability. You may apply for a suitability review before completing REAP. To do so, complete the suitability form and forward it to RECA.
