Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a process to recognise a candidate’s workplace learning.

The FETC 59097 RPL is a self-study course in which learners are required to complete assignments and submit a Portfolio of Evidence for Assessment and Moderation.

Candidates will be subject to a RPL Candidate screening process as per the following requirements:

  1. Candidate is currently employed in the capacity of a Property Practitioner (non-principal or principal) and has been actively working in real estate for at least 1 year.
  2. Candidate is in possession of a valid, current Fidelity Fund Certificate and is currently registered a Property Practitioner with the Property Practitioners Regulatory Authority

  5. Candidate has at least a Grade 10 certificate or above, preferably a matric certificate
  6. Candidate’s CV shows sufficient prior exposure to the real estate environment to select a specialist stream in real estate practice or valuation

Our professional staff are on standby to offer support and assistance to complete the Portfolio of Evidence in the required time frame.  Our guidelines are easy to understand and Portfolios of Evidence can be submitted electronically or in hard copy.
