Professional Designated Exam Level 5 Course (PDE5)

All property practitioners in South Africa who have achieved competency in their NQF Level 5 qualification and registered with the PPRA as Principal Property Practitioners must write and pass their PDE5 exam within two years to maintain Principal Status.

This exam is set by the Property Practitioners Regulatory Authority (PPRA).

The 4-hour PDE5 exam covers all knowledge and practical applications you have studied in the field, as contained in your NQF 5 learning material that you purchased from the PPRA or borrowed from a fellow practitioner.

To help you through this process, we’ve developed an innovative e-Learning PDE5 online course for all property practitioners in South Africa.  This online PDE5 course, over and above covering the requirements set out by the PPRA, will provide you with templates, examples of past exam questions, study tips, and knowledge. It will also guide you on where to concentrate your studies in the material provided by the Board, easy to follow calculation and statistic sheets.
