Chairperson’s Welcome

Dear Members, Stakeholders, Practitioners, and IndustryAffiliates,

We are five months into 2023 and there is a lot happening within the industry. Firstly, I would like to share some promising news:



Standards of Training for Property Practitioners

Much of our work in 2022 was dominated by advocating for the PPRA to expedite the implementation of Regulation 33- “Standard of Training for Property Practitioners” of the Property Practitioners Act. This legislation is intended to provide for the regulation of property practitioners, promote transformation and ensure protection of consumers.

Our proposed solution centres on several key elements, including less notational hours, practical training for the workplace component and professional development.

Based on extensive research and consultation with experts in the field, the NPPC has identified a comprehensive approach that we believe can address the legislation where an individual can obtain the knowledge and practical components before joining the industry and taking the 180-daytimeframe allowed for candidate property practitioners to qualify to non-principal property practitioners into account.

Our proposal also addresses the challenge of the Professional Designation Exam (“PDE”) requiring a qualification that can confer a professional designation as compelled by the PPRA policy.

After several months of consultations, the NPPC tabled this feasiblesolution to the education crisis at hand, which has now been endorsed by SSETA, which has confirmed that the proposal meets the QCTO standards.

Based on recent correspondence with Acting CEO, we trust that this matter will soon be put to rest and that the industry can be provided withproper guidance on the standards of education & training.
