Continual Professional Development Courses in the Non-Verifiable Category

CPD Real Estate Courses in South AfricaThe Estate Agents Affairs Board (EAAB) have legislated that all estate agents in South Africa who held a valid fidelity fund certificate whether as principal or non-principal estate agents, issued by the EAAB during 2015, excluding only those persons who held intern fidelity fund certificates, were obliged not only to have registered for CPD purposes but also to have accrued fifteen verifiable and five non-verifiable CPD points.

Non-compliant persons will be rendered disqualified as estate agents by reason of their failure to comply with the requirements of the mandatory Education Regulations.

CPD points must be accrued within a calendar year, over a three year rolling cycle.  It is legislated that you must accrue 15 verifiable points and 5 non-verifiable points per annum. It is important to note that these points must be accrued in the categories that you have chosen on your Personal Development Plan (PDP) which you access on your My CPD Portal.

The Board have extended the cut-off date for 2015 CPD points to 31st December 2016.  If you take advantage of this extension please remember that your 2016 CPD points must also be complete by the same date.

The Board charge an annual fee for verifiable CPD points which must be paid timeously.  Non-verifiable CPD points carry no set charge, and can be completed via our online learning platform (see available courses below).

It is important that you regularly access the EAAB site to check for any updates to CPD requirements.

Verifiable CPD Courses

Courses are managed by the EAAB and can be done in the way of EAAB Roadshows and e-Learning from your MyCPD Portal on the EAAB website.  You are welcome to download our free CPD and e-Learning guide for more information on verifiable CPD points.

Non-Verifiable CPD Courses

Non-Verifiable CPD points relate to subject matter that is not contained in the NQF 4 & 5 qualifications.  All agents other than intern agents must accrue 15 non verifiable CPD points over a three year rolling cycle, 5 CPD points per annum, from a maximum of three out of the five categories.

The five available categories are:

As an example if you choose all 5 courses in the Professional development category in a year, you will not be able to choose any further courses in that category for the balance of the 3 year cycle.  Each hour of studying equals one CPD point.  Our non-verifiable courses are an hour in duration.

PropAcademy has designed step-by-step e-Learning courses to help you achieve your CPD points at your own pace, in the comfort of your home or office.These courses are made up of videos, written material, webinars and multiple choice questions.  Once you receive a 70% pass mark, you will then be awarded with a certificate for each course passed.  We also offer face-2-face CPD lectures for your convenience which are listed on our Events Calendar.
