Help for agents over 60 who still need to ap­ply for their qual­i­fi­ca­tion ex­emp­tions

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - PROPERTY -

THE IN­STI­TUTE of Es­tate Agents, Western Cape, will be run­ning a work­shop in Au­gust for agents who are over 60 and need help com­pil­ing their port­fo­lios of ev­i­dence to ap­ply for ex­emp­tion from do­ing their NQF4 and NQF5 qual­i­fi­ca­tions or pro­fes­sional des­ig­na­tion ex­am­i­na­tions (PDEs).

This work­shop will be held at the IEA Western Cape of­fices in Shel­don Way, Pinelands, and costs R450 for mem­bers and R650 for vis­i­tors.

To ap­ply for ex­emp­tion, agents must have held their fidelity fund cer­tifi­cates (FFCs) for a con­tin­u­ous pe­riod of five years, have a valid FFC for 2013, and be 60 years or more.

An­nette Evans, re­gional man­ager for the IEA Western Cape, says any prin­ci­pals or agents who are more than 60 who want to ap­ply for ex­emp­tion need to get their ap­plica- tions in as soon as pos­si­ble.

“There are still many agents who find the ap­pli­ca­tion process con­fus­ing, but the in­sti­tute will help agents who still need to get their ap­pli­ca­tions in, as well as those who have ap­plied but need help com­pil­ing their port­fo­lios of ev­i­dence,” she said.

The in­sti­tute has an ex­pe­ri­enced as­ses­sor who will be at the work­shop to guide agents, and ad­vice will be given on all the doc­u­men­ta­tion to be in­cluded in the rel­e­vant ap­pli­ca­tion and PoE.

A com­pre­hen­sive list has been sup­plied by the EAABand fo­cus will also be on tips to con­duct suc­cess­ful in­ter­views with the EAAB.

The work­shop will take place on Au­gust 15 from 10am to 12.30pm. Call Janine Kil­lian on 021 531 3180 or email her at
