TPC

TPC – Test of Professional Competence

TPC is not something extra of the Examination. In fact, Rule 33A (1) & (8) says TPC is part of Estate Agent Examination.

Valuers, Appraisers, Estate Agents and Property Managers Rules 1986 (extracted)

1. The estate agent’s examination set by the Board shall consist of –

(a) a Part I Examination;

(b) a Part II Examination; and

(c) a Test of Professional Competence.

8. A candidate who has passed the Test of Professional Competence shall be considered to have passed the Estate Agent’s Examination.

It is the final part of the tests – Part 1, Part 2 written examination and thereafter TPC.

There are other criteria for taking the TPC. As an integral part of the whole Estate Agent Examination, requirements are:

Rule 33A (6) A candidate for the Test of Professional Competence shall satisfy the following conditions:

(a) has been registered as a probationary estate agent under the Act; and

(b) has either –

(i) passed the Part II Examination specified in paragraph (1) and completed two years of post-qualifying practical experience in an estate agency firm;

(ii) passed the examinations of an institution of higher learning or a professional institution specified in the Sixth Schedule and completed one year of post-qualifying practical experience in an estate agency firm; or

(iii) passed any other examinations approved by the Board and completed two years of post-qualifying practical experience in an estate agency firm.
