Online Requirements

What are the requirements to complete an online course?

It is recommended that a student be moderately proficient at using a computer. An example of this would be the ability to browse the internet, send and receive emails and create files and folders. If you are able to complete these activities using a computer you would probably be capable of completing an online course with RETS. Please note: our online course is set-up to be completed online – it would be time consuming and difficult to ‘print out’ our online course and we strongly discourage this. If you wish to have a paper based copy of the course RETS suggests you purchase the hardcopy version.

Once you are in your online course technical support is available through the online system. You will see a button clearly marked 'Technical support' which you can click on for any technical issues you may be having.
