Notice to all Estate Agents who are aged 60 years or older and who wish to apply for the grant of an educational exemption against the NQF real estate qualifications and/or the Professional Designation Examinations (PDE)
The Estate Agency Affairs Board (EAAB) has, since August 2011, allowed estate agents aged 60 years and older the opportunity to apply for the grant of an educational exemption against the NQF Level 4 and/or 5 real estate qualifications as well as against the Professional Designation Examinations (PDE) for principal or non-principal estate agents, as the case may be.
Estate agents are advised that this latitude will, however, cease as from 30 June 2015. Estate agents who qualify for the grant of the age-based educational exemption and who have either not yet applied for the exemption or been granted the exemption have a final opportunity to apply therefor by no later than 31 May 2015. This cut-off date will afford all applicants the opportunity of both submitting the necessary application for exemption, having the same duly assessed and of being interviewed by 30 June 2015 as required by the relevant policy.
