Professional Designated Exam Level 4

What's the Story?

All estate agents in South Africa who have achieved competency in their NQF Level 4 qualification must then move on to writing their Professional Designated Exam Level 4 or PDE4 exam to achieve Full Status. This exam is set by the Estate Agents Affairs Board (EAAB); exams are held online four times a year.  You must book for this exam with the Board as soon as you receive your NQF 4 competency certificate from Services SETA.


The four-hour PDE4 exam covers all knowledge and practical applications you have studied in the field, as contained in your NQF 4 learning material supplied by the Board.  Our PDE4 course is based on exam questions and answers.  Once you have the PDE 4 exam behind you, you will be issued with a fidelity fund certificate (FFC) stating that you are a Full Status agent.  Before this, your status will remain that of Intern.


To help you through this process, we’ve developed an innovative e-Learning course for all estate agents in South Africa to help prepare you for your PDE4 exam regardless of which provider you studied with previously.  This online PDE 4 course, over and above covering the requirements set out by the EAAB, will provide you with templates, examples of past exam questions, study tips, knowledge on where to concentrate your studies in the material provided by the Board, and easy to follow calculation and statistic sheets, as well as flashcards.  97% of our PDE4 learners have passed this exam with flying colours.


As this is an open book exam, we also show you how to systemise and access the information that you take into the exam. Over and above the course material, PropAcademy supplies you with an instructional video, webinars and access to our friendly facilitators whom you can contact should you have queries.
