Estate Agent Qualifications

If you are looking to start a career in estate agency and you want to get qualified, or if you are already an estate agent and want to boost your credentials, then look no further than the range of qualifications provided by the NFoPP Awarding Body.

The National Federation of Property Professionals (NFoPP) Awarding Body is a sister company of NAEA, providing regulated, nationally recognised qualifications across a range of levels.

Residential Sales Qualifications

There are two qualifications for residential sales: the Level 3 Technical Award in Sale of Residential Property, which is set as the required level of qualification in order to join NAEA as a full Member, and the Level 4 Certificate in Sale of residential property, with which you can join NAEA at the Fellow grade. NAEA fully support both of these NFoPP Awarding Body qualifications.
