3.1. Estate agents who have passed the PDE 4, and who hold a valid fidelity fund certificate issued by the EAAB, are entitled to use the designation of Professional Practitioner in Real Estate (“PPRE”).
3.2 Estate agents who have passed the PDE 5, and who hold a valid fidelity fund certificate issued by the EAAB, are entitled to use the designation of Master Practitioner in Real Estate (“MPRE”).
