Training agreements

A training agreement is a contractual arrangement between an applicant (trainee) seeking to become an interim land agent and a trainer who is either an individual or corporation providing training to an interim land agent.

The trainer and the trainee, before a witness, sign the training agreement. In the case of a corporation, a company representative may sign a training agreement.

The supervising land agent(s) of the trainee interim land agent must be a licensed permanent land agent who has held a licence for at least 3 consecutive years immediately preceding entering into the training agreement.

A training agreement expires on the expiry date of the trainee’s interim land agent licence unless renewed or entering into a new training agreement.

You can use the fillable training agreement PDF form provided or create your own.

Switching trainers or no trainer

  • Your licence includes an active training agreement and you will need a new training agreement. You may only have one training agreement in effect at any time.
    • You must file a copy of the new training agreement with the Registrar of Land Agents.
  • If not previously completed, you will also need to terminate your existing training agreement.
    • Either party may terminate the training agreement by serving a Notice of Termination of Training Agreement (PDF, 29 KB) on the other party.
    • Within 7 days of the notice being served on the other party, a copy must be given to the Registrar of Land Agents.
    • Within 14 days of termination, a Performance Evaluation (PDF, 2.8 MB) must be completed by the last trainer and filed with the Registrar of Land Agents.
