Successful completion of both the “Unrestricted – Management” examination and the “Unrestricted – Technical Only” examination qualifies an individual to the “Unrestricted” registration and therefore eligible to act as the Principal Broker of a broker business. However, individuals who hold an “Unrestricted” registration will still be under the direction of the Principal Broker of the firm they are employed by.
To make application to write the “Unrestricted – Management” examination, an individual must hold a RIBO registration restricted to “Acting Under Supervision” or “Unrestricted – Technical Only” and have been actively employed for at least two (2) years with a RIBO registered firm.
Successful completion of only the “Unrestricted – Management” examination will not remove the restriction of “Acting Under Supervision”. It is suggested that all those planning to write the examination carefully review the Standards for Management Skills.
Upon completion of the RIBO exam, results will be provided to you by your exam service provider once they are available. Please do not contact RIBO for your exam results.
