Help for agents over 60 who still need to apply for their qualification exemptions
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 Janine@cape.ieasa.org.za.
