July 10, 2002, MISSISSAUGA, Ontario
First Canadian Title, Canada’s leading provider of title insurance, announced today that an online course on title insurance is now available to Ontario realtors striving to complete 24 credits of mandatory continuing education.
First Canadian Title worked in conjunction with CE Network Inc., a leading provider of online continuing education for real estate professionals, to develop the course, which is available at www.cenetwork.com for a cost of $40. The course provides realtors with concise, relevant information about title insurance and how it benefits realtors and their clients.
“First Canadian Title is committed to continuing education and assisted in the development of this course to ensure that realtors are aware of the protection, as well as time and money savings, that title insurance affords,” said David Wybrow, First Canadian Title’s Vice President, Products and Operations. “This course was also developed with a realtor’s hectic schedule in mind, and is available exclusively online, enabling agents and brokers to take the course at a time, place and speed convenient to them.”
CE Network’s course on title insurance was approved by The Real Estate Council of Ontario (RECO), which requires that real estate agents working in Ontario complete a minimum of 24 credits of mandatory continuing education (MCE) by the time registration must be renewed. This course qualifies those who complete it for two such credits.
“First Canadian Title and CE Network share a common goal -- to help realtors build career success,” said CE Network’s VP of Sales Paul McDonald. “Through the practical teaching tools and challenging learning environment that this and other CE Network courses offer, a realtor can do just that.”
