NQF Level 4

Why study Real Estate NQF Level 4?

The Real Estate industry is an important sector within the South African economy and requires professionals who are well-trained and knowledgeable to meet the needs for both private citizens and the business community. Also, there are many legislative requirements within this industry and those involved in the sale or renting of property need to understand the relevant legislation and be able to apply it in their execution of their work.


Who should study this course?

This Real Estate NQF Level 4 qualification is for any individual who wishes to be involved in the property or real estate industry.

The qualification is a prerequisite for admission to the professional examination for estate agents, conducted by the Estate Agency Affairs Board.
