Candidates must enrol for the PDE using the “MyEAAB” portal. Before enrolling candidates should ensure that they have their 7 digit personal identification number and ID number available and that the relevant NQF Level 4 and/or Level 5 real estate qualification required for admission to the PDE has been uploaded to the EAAB database. If the required NQF real estate qualification does not appear on the system candidates are requested to e-mail a certified copy of the relevant Certificate of Competence to the EAAB at firstname.lastname@example.org for uploading so as to ensure that no difficulties will be experienced when registering for the PDE.
In addition to satisfying themselves that the NQF Level 4 real estate qualification has been uploaded to the EAAB database, intern estate agents must also ensure that the mandatory intern logbook and POE was duly sent to, and approved by, the EAAB before attempting to enrol for the PDE. A candidate will not be eligible to enrol for the PDE if the intern logbook has either not been received or approved by the EAAB and/or if the required NQF real estate qualification has not been uploaded to the EAAB database.
To ensure a successful PDE enrolment on the “MyEAAB” portal, examination candidates are requested to follow the following enrolment procedure:
Postponements: In line with the EAAB PDE policy relating to enrolments and postponements eligible PDE candidates are granted only one (1) allowable postponement attempt which must, similarly, be requested, lodged and approved through “MyEAAB” portal. It is compulsory, therefore, for the candidate to undertake the PDE on the selected postponement date in order not to forfeit the examination payment previously made. Failure to undertake the exam on the approved postponed date will result in a forfeiture of the full paid examination fee.
Postponement to examination dates falling outside the current financial year
Examination candidates must ensure that the postponed date falls within the period 1 April to 31 March of the current financial year. Should the date fall into another financial year the postponement may be approved although a ‘top-up fee’ (being the difference between the first payment and the revised examination) will be required before an examination seat number can be allocated to the candidate, bearing in mind that the PDE enrolment fee generally increases on 1 April of each year. Candidates are requested to check the fees schedule on www.eaab.org.za prior to making an examination postponement request.
Postponements motivated by medical reasons or other factors beyond the control of the candidate must be fully supported by official documentary proof to be e-mailed to email@example.com for assessment. If approved the EAAB will process the postponement request and notify the candidate accordingly by e-mail. Proof of any required ‘top-up’ payment, together with proof of a previous payment made and approval of the postponement granted or the examination registration letter received when the postponement was requested or an examination registration attempted, must be sent (in one e-mail) to firstname.lastname@example.org to enable the EAAB Finance Department to link and allocate both payments on time and allow the system to generate and send the examination seat number, which will be confirmed to the requester.
