What can you expect from this program/course?

How can land that is or could be part of a conservation program advantage your realty business? That’s what you’ll find out with this new one-day course developed by Ducks Unlimited Canada and supported by the Alberta Real Estate Foundation. After completing the course, you’ll discover that the benefits of restoration and conservation programs go beyond environmental; they can actually bring you more revenue potential. The key for you is being able to scout the opportunities.

What will you learn?

This course explains how Ducks Unlimited Canada identifies and secures properties with high restoration and conservation value potential. As a realtor, you can play an important part in this process as you are well positioned to help identify land that may qualify for Ducks Unlimited programs.
