Our Online Induction Course prepares you for the completion of the Logbook and covers more than 80% of the topics requested in the compulsory Logbook all Intern Agents have to complete.

How long is the internship?
It takes 12 uninterrupted months to complete the internship during which period you complete the Intern Logbook, which includes a Portfolio of Evidence, showing that you have completed and has proof of the knowledge and activities associated with real estate.
When should I start completing my Logbook?
I personally, and out of experience, suggest that an Intern agent should concentrate on completing the Induction course befóre starting to build the Logbook and Portfolio of Evidence and tackle the Projects and tasks. The reason is, that you actually need to have a little experience and have at least done a Mandate and a Sale in order to understand the process better.
With the broad knowledge you gain while studying the Induction Course, this should be possible to achieve within the first 3 months of internship, whereafter you will be equipped with actual examples to place in your Portfolio.
Am I qualified after completion of the Logbook?
No. You will only be qualified as a full status agent when you have been found competent in the PDE Level 4 (Professional Designated Exam) and passed the PDE4 (Further Education & Training ) exam. You will then be allowed to place the designation: PPRE, after your name. (Professional Practitioner in Real Estate)
Do I need a matric to complete my Logbook?
No, but in order to register for your NQF 4, you must have matric with maths and a second SA language.
How long do I have to complete the Logbook?
You have the 12 months internship period since the first Fidelity Fund Certificate was received to complete your logbook, but are required to submit it by no later than 24 months after you became an intern estate agent.
Will I be able to print the reading material or assignments?
1. The reading material is protected, but the assignments can be found in the ‘TEMPLATES’ section in pdf format and are printable. 2. The Scenarios created to complete the assignments for Module 6 can also be found in the ‘TEMPLATES’ section in pdf format and is printable. 3.
