Hey there future realtor!

Have you been thinking of all these questions lately?

“Which is the best RES course provider?”

“How long is the RES Course?”

“What’s the difference between an express and normal class?”

Well, do not worry, NAVIS is here to save the day!

In this article, we will be talking on the RES Course Comparison between 5 different CEA Approved RES Course Providers.

Whether you are a fresh graduate, working adult, or parents of young kids, this comparison will be indispensable for you!

We will be mainly comparing them with 3 factors:

  • Costs
  • Duration
  • Suitability

Courses these days usually span between 2 to 19 weeks depending on the type of courses you choose.

Thanks to all the CEA Providers, you would likely have one that matches your schedule.

Before we begin, here are some important notes:

  • A minimum of 75% attendance rate for the RES Course is required for candidates to take on the RES Exams
  • You must meet the RES Course admission criteria IF you are taking the RES Exams
  • If you are purely taking the RES Course for learning purposes, you do not need to fulfil the admission criteria. But take note that you are unable to receive the Cerfitication of Attendance nor sit for the RES Exams.
  • All RES Courses listed below do not include the RES Exam fees.
  • Singaporeans/PR can pay their course fees using their SkillsFuture credits
  • Candidates with NTUC members are able to defray up to $250 for their RES Exams

The bottom line?

All five course providers are highly recommended with trainers that have good reviews from our newly onboard agents.

There also a few particular trainers who were able to engage and spend additional time to coach their students on tougher topics.

These trainers are as followed:

  • David Huan (Benchmark Pro)
  • Harry Yeo (RCN)
  • Celeste Ng (RCN)
  • Kent Soo (RCN)
  • Thomas Tan (RCN)

David Huan has also created his own in-house mind maps for his students to learn more effectively. It is said that he also has a very high passing rate per class.

To sum things up – to make life easier and to raise your RES Exams passing rates on your first attempt, choose a course that:

1. Matches your work-life schedule optimally. You will need a high mental capacity to absorb all these new knowledge.

2. Is convenient for you. You would not want to travel 1 hour back-and-forth to go to work restless the next morning.

3. Has superb trainers that are willing to go out of their ways to help you understand the difficult concepts better. (Think of your favourite Secondary School Teacher)

And… that’s it!

We hope that this article has helped you in some way.
