How to update your status at the PPRA once you've received your LA letter


If you've recently completed the NQF4 assessment for FETC: Real Estate and have been found competent, congratulations! The next step is to upgrade your status with the Property Practitioners Regulatory Authority (PPRA). This article will guide you through the process of updating your NQF4 status at the PPRA.


1. Obtain your LA Letter or SETA Certificate:
After being found competent in the NQF4 assessment, you'll receive an LA Letter from your training provider confirming external moderation. This letter will include an LA number, which is essential for the upgrading process. Alternatively, you may receive a certificate from the Sector Education and Training Authority (SETA) that confirms your competence in NQF4.

2. Visit the PPRA website:
Access the PPRA website at [PPRA website URL]. The PPRA, formerly known as the Estate Agency Affairs Board (EAAB), is the authority responsible for regulating property practitioners in South Africa.

3. Log in to MYPPRA:
Navigate to the MYPPRA portal on the PPRA website and log in using your credentials. If you don't have an account yet, you'll need to create one before proceeding.

4. Submit your documentation:
Once logged in, create a new query requesting an NQF4 status update. Attach your LA Letter or SETA Certificate as supporting documentation.

5. Await PPRA confirmation:
The PPRA will review your documentation and update your status accordingly. This process may take up to 30 days. Keep an eye on your email and MYPPRA account for any notifications regarding your NQF4 status update.
