The qualifications required to become a professional property valuer are stipulated in the Rules for the Property Valuers Profession, 2020, of the Property Valuers Profession Act, 2000.
The first step is to enrol at a tertiary-education institution that is accredited by the South African Council for the Property Valuers Profession (SACPVP) and to register as a Candidate Valuer with the SACPVP. The candidate must complete the prescribed 4-year courses and pass the required examinations with a degree in Real Estate (majoring in Property Valuation).
After having gained workplace experience under the supervision of either a Professional Associated Valuer or a Professional Valuer for a minimum of 2 years, the Candidate Valuer can advance to become a Professional Associated Valuer by taking the required admission examination for professional associated valuers.
To obtain the highest qualification of Professional Property Valuer, the Professional Associated Valuer can apply after a further 2 - 3 years to prove his or her competence, proficiency, and experience by passing the admission examination for professional valuers.
