National Certificate in Real Estate (NQF 5)
The Estate Agency Affairs Board (EAAB) made it mandatory that all principal agents must acquire this National Certificate in Real Estate. The qualification covers all the required management, marketing, people, ethical, legal and financial skills necessary to manage a team of agents effectively. It is the first step in fulfilling the EAAB’s legal requirements. The other requirements are:
- the passing of the Professional Designation Exam (PDE), and
- ongoing Continuing Professional Development [CPD]).
The qualification provides successful learners with access to the Chartall Business College Bachelor of Business Administration degree.Is this qualification for me?
This qualification is offered using blended learning. (Note that face-to-face training is also offered at selected workplaces. You can request face-to-face training here.) Learners who hold an FFC as a full status principal agent may apply for RPL if they have sufficient and current workplace experience.
Chartall Business College has curated your training material into weeks for easy access, although you can move around in the subject material if you wish. You will be allocated to an e-lecturer who will assist you with queries, run e-tutorials and keep you on track. The course material is a combination of e-learning and pre-recorded e-lectures that you work through systematically in your own time, at your own place and in your own space. There are also live e-lectures where you can engage with your e-lecturer and ask questions.
Blended learning offers the same number of hours as you would get in class, using the same notes and slides you would receive in class. In addition, you will be given access to additional resources, such as videos by subject matter experts, readings and third-party videos. With our blended learning methodology you can repeat any lesson or video at any time (which is impossible to do in class). This means you can review difficult concepts slowly and often for deeper learning and insight.
Learners must have a PC or tablet (or smart phone, but this could be too small for effective learning) with sufficient internet connectivity to download the online learning materials and view videos.
Learners must also be employed in a real estate agency in a supervisory position, as there are practical projects to complete.
- You must have completed the National FETC: Real Estate (NQF 4) and passed the EAAB’s Professional Designation Exam (PDE);
- You need to be proficient in English at National Senior Certificate level.
- A good level of computer literacy is also an advantage.
The advantage of the portfolio as a mode of assessment is that it can be used after the learning to support the learner’s CV as it showcases what they can do practically (you will need to keep a copy of it for this purpose). Learners will still need to comply with any requirements of the EAAB (such as writing Professional Designation Examinations and ongoing professional development [CPD]).
Learners may also be required to write a Final Summative Assessment once they have successfully completed the portfolio. Chartall will keep all registered learners up-to-date with this possible SETA requirement.
