Education

The Association ensures that members are kept on the cutting edge of their profession by arranging timely Forums for discussion/dissemination of information on relevant topics/legislations which will impact our members.

Members are able to share their experiences and provide practical solutions to challenges which are being experienced in our industry. We are the Voice for Real Estate in Jamaica and we take that responsibility very seriously. Our mandate therefore is to promote the welfare of our members through all of the available channels.

Below are some of the educational opportunities available to members:

New Membership Orientation

All new REALTOR® members of the Association are required to complete a New Member Orientation Program within their first sixty (60) days of gaining membership in the Association as a requirement to complete the membership process. 

At this program, the new member will learn more about what the Association has to offer, participate in the Code of Ethics training, be introduced to the Multiple Listing System (MLS) platform and network with other new members of the Association.
