At LaSalle College, we know that the new realities of the job market in times of crisis can be worrisome for some, and we are constantly concerned about providing our students with the necessary tools to reassure them, but more importantly, to prepare them.
Following this initiative, LaSalle College's School of Business and Technologies offered its students the opportunity to participate in an OACIQ conference. L'Organisme d'autoréglementation du courtage immobilier du Québec (OACIQ) ensures the protection of the public who use real estate brokerage services governed by law.
This information session was mainly intended for students in the Residential Real Estate Broker program (offered at our Montreal and Laval campuses, along with the remote learning option), preparing for the OACIQ certification exam. The conference mainly provided them with tools and tips to prepare for the exam, in addition to demystifying the marking process and getting an overview of its components.
Speaker César Dos Santos, Training Advisor at the OACIQ, gave a dynamic presentation on the various important points to know in order to adequately prepare for the exam. This was followed by a question-and-answer session that allowed students to raise any points not covered.
Following the conference, several students from the School of Management mentioned the relevance and advantages of being able to attend such an event, allowing them to gather concrete information to prepare for the job market. It also allowed them to become familiar with the new realities of the environment.
Indeed, the real estate sector also had to undertake a phase of renewal with the new reality of COVID-19. However, we should not worry about future prospects in this area, as the onslaught of the second wave of COVID-19 did not affect October's real estate resale activity in the Montreal area and its surroundings, on the contrary. The OACIQ has also created a guide with the new measures to be followed in order to help real estate brokers.
The world of technology is changing at a rapid pace and adapting to global trends is a key part of this industry. To meet these many needs, the International School of Business and Technologies offers technical training to develop entrepreneurs and information technology (IT) specialists.
