The Saskatchewan Real Estate Commissionís Education Code of Conduct for Learners

As with professionals in any industry, training and education are taken very seriously. The Saskatchewan Real Estate Commission has developed a set of core values for education as well as a code of conduct for learners to ensure a high level of professionalism as well as confirm goals for learning.

All students are expected to adhere to the Code of Conduct for Learners when enrolled in any of the Commissionís courses, whether new to the industry or an existing member.

Professionals never guess Ė they make it their business to know their business.

The continuous pursuit of education and training by those engaged in a profession is the cornerstone for the development and enhancement of professionalism. An individualís intellectual engagement, personal integrity and ethical conduct are inherent in the learning process and necessary for the acquisition of new knowledge and the development of new skills by that individual.

As professionals, registrants have the responsibility to gain and maintain the knowledge and skills needed to succeed as a professional. As well, it is important to adopt a mindset for continuous improvement to ensure you are competent in the provision of services to the public. Competent practice is essential to maintaining the trust, respect and confidence of other professionals and the public. It is important to acknowledge that one can approach their career in a unique manner without sacrificing professionalism.
Integrity is doing the right thing even if nobody is watching.

The Commissionís overall goal is to provide a high level of professional education in an effective learning environment and has established a set of education core values in which several guiding principles are found. Learners are expected to ensure that they demonstrate the following principle-based code of conduct:

  1. Learners will comply with all federal, provincial and municipal laws, including The Real Estate Act, its Regulations and the Commission Bylaws.

  2. Learners will be actively engaged in their education and make their best efforts to acquire the knowledge and develop the skills as set out by the identified learning outcomes for that course or program. Learners are expected to take the initiative to ensure they have a thorough comprehension of the course content, and where not, ask for guidance.

  3. Learners will respect the rights of others and treat one another and the public with dignity and respect at all times.

  4. Learners will at all times conduct themselves in an honest, professional and mature manner

  5. Learners will support the Commissionís educational requirements and will conduct themselves in a manner that does not undermine the integrity, efficacy and/or efficiency of any aspect of the Commissionís education.
