This qualification is for estate agents

Achieving this marks you out as a qualified, professional estate agent. Certification involves passing exams for four units but these are designed to support and complement the development of those already working day-to-day in the sector. The learning framework focuses on laws governing residential property and land transactions and established practice around the buying process. 

This qualification also crucially provides an entry point for your professional body membership which in turn gives you post nominal letters that advertise your individual professional credibility. 

PLEASE NOTE: This qualification is being replaced by Level 3 (SCQF Level 6) Certificate in Property Agency. Registrations for this qualification will close on 30 September 2024. All learners will have sufficient time to complete their qualification as learners have either three years from the date of registration or until 30 September 2027 when the final examinations will take place.​​​​​
