Where Can I Review For The 2014 Real Estate Brokers’ Exam?

Updated on August 27, 2013 by 36 Comments

The Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) has been conducting the Real Estate Brokers’ Licensure Exam since 2011, usually in March. Real estate brokers now have professional licenses, similar to Certified Public Accountants (CPA’s), engineers, and doctors (among others). The next one will be on March 2014.

PRB-RES Official Seal

I believe that real estate practitioners should comply with Philippine laws since we don’t want to be tagged as an illegal broker. Even those who only wish to have additional knowledge on real estate investing would gain a lot from the real estate brokers’ review and Continuing Professional Education (CPE) seminars.

Who may take the real estate brokers’ exam?

Under R.A. 9646 (RESA Law) and its Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR), until such time that there are graduates of a college course in Real Estate Service (this is expected to happen in 2016), graduates of a four-year course recognized by the CHED may take the Real Estate Brokers’ Exam, provided they fufill all requirements.

When I took the real estate brokers’ exam in 2011, I wrote down the details and requirements for easy processing , also how to get to PRC Manila by car or through commuting, etc. – you can view that post here. For those who want to top the real estate brokers’ exam, some tips may be found here.

Schedules of real estate brokers’ review seminars for the March 2014 exam

For now, I only have the seminar schedules of Urban Institute, which is headed by Engr. Enrico Cruz. Jay and I are both graduates of Engr. Cruz’s review seminars (and of course, we passed), so we are more than happy to let all of you know of his seminar schedules. I believe that the P17,000 fee for 120 hours of learning (only around P142 per hour) is very much worth it, considering how much a person could potentially earn as a licensed real estate broker.

If you know of other review centers offering similar seminars, please let us know in the comments so we can include them in this list.
