WHY THE PROFESSIONAL DESIGNATION EXAMINATION (PDE)?

The Professional Designation Examination (PDE) is an integrated test of knowledge for estate agents contemplated in regulation of the Education Regulations promulgated under Government Notice R.633 on 04 June 2008. In terms of regulations 4(3) no persons may be registered by the EAAB as a full status agent unless that person has successfully completed the Professional Designation Examination (PDE). The PDE is entirely distinct from the old EAAB Board examination and focuses on the new education curriculum that was introduced in 2008.

  • The PDE application process will be available from 20 July 2011 from which date examination registrations and venues, as well as all preparatory workshops, will be listed on the EAAB’s website home page which may be accessed at http://www.eaab.org.za
