PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION 
Purpose:

A practitioner in the field of Commercial Property Management needs to have a broad knowledge of the concepts, principles and theory underpinning the skills and specialized knowledge required to practice within this field. The aim of this qualification is therefore to provide learners already operating in Commercial Property management or who want to practice within this field with a broad understanding of the knowledge base on which their practice should be founded.

The qualification has been designed for new entrants into the field as well as to facilitate the formalization of knowledge and skills acquired by learners that have extensive experience as Property Practitioners, Managers, Brokers and Facility Managers in Commercial Property.

Candidates completing this qualification will have developed the knowledge and skills required to:
  • Analyse, evaluate and apply the Real Estate Code of Conduct and Ethics.
  • Perform the functions related to general business in the Commercial Property Industry.
  • Perform the specific functions related to an area of specialisation within the Commercial Property Industry.

    Rationale:

    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 specialised. 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 professionalisation 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. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    The following learning is assumed to be in place:
  • Communication and Mathematical Literacy at the NQF Level 3 or equivalent.

    Recognition of Prior Learning:

    The structure of this Unit Standard based Qualification makes the Recognition of Prior Learning possible, if the learner is able to demonstrate competence in the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes implicit in this Qualification. Recognition of Prior Learning will be done by means of an Integrated Assessment. This Recognition of Prior Learning may allow for access to the qualification for those learners who do not meet the requirements for admission or for attaining the qualification in whole or in part. Credits may also be given for unit standards in the qualification.

    All recognition of Prior Learning is subject to quality assurance by the relevant accredited Education, Training, Quality, and Assurance Body and is conducted by a registered workplace assessor. The evidence required from a candidate wanting to be assessed against the core and fundamental unit standards may have been acquired in a range of economic sectors and these will be recognized if appropriate.

    Access to Qualification:

    There is an open access to this qualification, keeping in mind the "Learning assumed to be in place".

    Integrated Assessment:

    Assessment practices must be open, transparent, fair, valid, and reliable and ensure that no learner is disadvantaged in any way whatsoever. An integrated assessment approach is required.

    Learning, teaching and assessment are inextricably linked. Whenever possible, the assessment of knowledge, skills, attitudes and values shown in the unit standards should be integrated.

    Assessment of the communication, language, literacy and numeracy should be conducted in conjunction with other aspects and should use authentic contexts wherever possible.

    A variety of methods must be used in assessment and tools and activities must be appropriate to the context in which the learner is working. Where it is not possible to assess the learner in the workplace or on-the-job, simulations, case studies, role-plays and other similar techniques should be used to provide a context appropriate to the assessment.

    The term 'Integrated Assessment' implies that theoretical and practical components should be assessed together. During integrated assessments the assessor should make use of formative and summative assessment methods and assess combinations of practical, applied, foundational and reflective competencies.

    Assessors and moderators should make use of a range of formative and summative assessment methods. Assessors should assess and give credit for the evidence of learning that has already been acquired through formal, informal and non-formal learning and work experience.

    Assessment should ensure that all specific outcomes, embedded knowledge and critical cross-field outcomes are evaluated. The assessment of the critical cross-field outcomes should be integrated with the assessment of specific outcomes and embedded knowledge. 

    INTERNATIONAL COMPARABILITY 
    International benchmarking was done against learning programmes offered in the following countries:
  • SADC countries including Zimbabwe, Namibia, Botswana and Zambia.
  • Australia.
  • United Kingdom.
  • United States of America.

    SADC qualifications:

    A study was undertaken by the EAAB to compare South Africa's Real estate code of Conduct and legislation to international and SADC legislation. According to this study, Botswana is the only country that has recently upgraded its laws in relation to real Estate practices.

    The EAAB report also indicated that there is no formal form of regulation or training in the Real Estate (and, by implication) the Commercial Property industry in Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, or Africa in general.

    Zimbabwe:

    Various international distance learning institutions offer courses to individual sin Zimbabwe. However, one specific institute, the Commercial Real Estate Institute, offers a series of certification programmes for practitioners in the field.

    The four courses are:
  • Certified Commercial Sales Specialist.
  • Certified Commercial Leasing Specialist.
  • Certified Land Sales Specialist.
  • Certified Residential Investor Representative.

    The content of the second programme has some relevance to the content pertaining to these qualifications which includes the following:
  • Module 1: Includes market analysis, effective listing techniques and tenant representation.
  • Module 2: Includes build to suit, ethics and rules for buyer/ tenant representation, fair dealings and the commercial lease.
  • Module 3: Includes office lease forms, retail lease forms, industrial lease forms.
  • Module 4: Includes commercial lease analysis, due diligence and property analysis for the commercial lease and environmental issues affecting commercial tenants/landlords.

    However, the focus of this learning programme is on leasing and is not completely relevant to the focus of the Further Education and Training Certificate: Commercial Property and Facilities Management.

    Other learning programmes that are being offered in Zimbabwe include the Principles of Advanced Property Practice being offered via distance learning through the College of People Management and Development (CPMD).

    The course includes:
  • Module 1:
    > Capital Gains Tax.
    > The property environment including expropriation.
    > Income Tax and the Estate Agent.
    > VAT.
    > Deeds registration including transfer and stamp duty.
    > Town planning.
  • Module 2:
    > Introduction to understanding and integration financial statements.
    > Different forms of ownership including trusts.
    > General requirements for contracts & special contract of sale.
  • Module 3:
    > All the financial calculations you will ever need to know.
    > Valuations of going concerns and business enterprises.
    > Valuation of income producing properties and specimen valuations.
    > Valuing residential property, valuing unique properties.
  • Module 4:
    > Law of Agency.
    > Retirement Villages.
    > Shareblock schemes.
    > Time sharing.

    The Certified Commercial Investment Member (designation) offered through the CCIM Institute consists of various courses that are required to earn the designation.

    These courses include:
  • Financial analysis for Commercial Investment Real Estate.
  • Marketing Analysis for Commercial investment Real Estate.
  • User Decision Analysis for Commercial Investment Real Estate.

    Although these courses are offered in commercial property the main focus of the CCIM designation is competence on investment. The CMPD programme offers some components that are applicable to Commercial Property, but focuses mainly on Real Estate Agents.

    The University of Zimbabwe offers a variety of under- and postgraduate programmes. Some of the generic knowledge and skills underpinning commercial property management, brokering and facilities management are included in the content of these courses, but nothing specific to the specialisations in the Further Education and Training Certificate: Commercial Property and Facilities Management is offered. For instance, the Bachelor of Business Studies (Marketing) includes financial accounting, business administration, economic principles, principles of marketing, public relations and selling and sales management.

    Namibia:

    The National Property Academy used to offer programmes related to Real Estate: commercial and residential. However, no current information on the academy or its offerings.

    The University of Namibia offers a variety of under- and postgraduate qualifications through various Faculties. Courses related to real estate and commercial property are usually housed at the Faculty of Economics and Management Sciences. Although a variety of qualifications are offered in general business administration, economics and management sciences, there is nothing being offered that specialises in this field.

    Components of the components in the Advanced Diploma in Business Administration pertain to commercial property, facilities management and brokering, e.g:
  • Strategic Marketing.
  • Entrepreneurship.
  • Management process.
  • Business project.
  • Business economics.
  • Business accounting.

    Botswana:

    There are no training courses offered that are specific to commercial property.

    The Department of Architecture and Planning offers a Bachelor Degree in Architecture and in Urban and Regional Planning. However detailed information on the content of these programmes was not available.

    The Centre for Continuing Education at the University offers various short courses. The Distance Education Unit (DEU) offers seven programmes as follows: Four degree programmes (i) Accounting, (ii) Finance (iii) Marketing (iv) Management and 3 Diploma programmes, (I) Diploma in Adult Education (ii) Commonwealth Diploma in Youth and Development Work and (iii) Diploma in Primary Education. However, none of these programmes focus specifically on commercial property, facilities management and brokering.

    Zambia:

    The University of Zambia comprises nine schools but none of these schools does offer any programme specific to commercial property, facilities management and brokering.

    Once again, there are only generic components of certain programmes that touch on knowledge underpinning this field of learning.
