About this course:

The Designated Individual Course is aimed at submortgage brokers who aspire to become managers in the future. It is equally well suited for professionals who have recently taken on management responsibilities at their brokerage and would like to enhance their knowledge.

This course will help prepare students for success by reviewing the responsibilities of the brokerage’s Designated Individual and by providing practical insights that all managing brokers should know.

Note: The course material is divided into two afternoon sessions, delivered via an interactive online learning platform. Participants must attend both sessions in order to receive their Designated Individual Course completion certificate.

June 9 from 1pm-5pm

Enrollment Fees: $275 + GST for members; $475 + GST for non-members
