Professional Designated Exam Level 5 Course (PDE5)

PDE 5 Real Estate Course

All estate agents in South Africa who have achieved competency in their NQF Level 5 qualification and registered with the EAAB as Principal Property Practitioners, must write and pass their PDE5 exam within 2 years to maintain Principal Status.  This exam is set by the Estate Agents Affairs Board (EAAB); exams are held in each province every quarter.

The four-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 Board or borrowed from a fellow agent.

To help you through this process, we’ve developed an innovative e-Learning PDE5 course for all estate agents in South Africa.  This online PDE5 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, easy to follow calculation and statistic sheets.

I just want to thank you guys for helping me through the PDE5!! PropAcademy you rock!

Course Materials

The PDE5 course includes the following:

  • You will be guided through all your online modules as you download them.  Once done please watch the video which gives you an excellent understanding of what the exam is about, how to prepare for it, how to prepare your course material so that you can easily access it during this open-book exam.
  • We also provide schedules containing statistics, calculations, definitions, flashcards, the Code of Conduct summarised as well as the Estate Agents Affairs Act.  We show you how to use them and personalise them to your exam requirements.  You will also be given examples of past PDE5 exam questions with model answers.
  • PropAcademy supplies you with an index for your EAAB NQF5 Study Material, however, this is a free add on resource, as Prop Academy will not refund Learners due to the index not suiting all versions of the Study Guide.
  • The index we have provided only works on the EAAB NQF5 Study Material files that contain 1584 pages.  To take advantage of this free Resource, you must obtain this specific study guide and not any of the later versions which all have differing page numbers and are therefore inconsistent with the Index.
  • The EAAB NQF5 Study Material needs to be purchased by you from the Estate Agents Affairs Board (EAAB) website, we also advise estate agents to save money and borrow these files from your fellow agents, as the material itself has not been updated by the EAAB since 2008.
