Commercial Property Management is a multi-million Rand sector which requires professionals who are well-trained and knowledgeable to meet the commercial property needs of the business community through the provision of office space and business premises. A wide range of legislation applies to this sector and employees/agents need to understand the relevant legislation and be able to apply it in the execution of their work. This qualification strives to equip the learners with the knowledge and skills necessary to be able to operate effectively and efficiently in the Commercial Property Management sector. The knowledge and skills required by practitioners, managers, brokers and facility managers in the Commercial Property Management sector are specialized. The development of this qualification arose from a need to develop a learning pathway for practitioners who are entering into, or have been practicing in this field for many years without being able to gain recognition against a nationally registered qualification. Property Practitioners, Managers, Brokers and Facility Managers in Commercial Property need to comply with the requirements of the Estate Agency Affairs Board (EAAB) in order to register as non-principal estate agents. This qualification aims to satisfy the EAAB's requirements in this regard, but focuses on the specific knowledge and skills required within the field of Commercial Property Management. The registration of the Further Education and Training Certificate: Commercial Property and Facilities Management on the NQF underpins the professionalization of the Commercial Property Management sector. It also creates a formal learning pathway for individuals wanting to follow a career within this lucrative and quickly expanding field.
