Why is there no syllabus?

Expertise as a level of knowledge and experience cannot be imparted through a syllabus or training course only. Many different building blocks need to come together to achieve expertise, such as continuous personal development, exchange with other experts and a permanent questioning of beliefs. Consequently, an Expert Level Syllabus or training courses do not exist!

What the CPRE EL examination comprises

The examination consists of three parts:

  1. Written application
  2. Written assignment
  3. Oral examination (face-to-face meeting or video conference at a dedicated place)

For details see the Examination Regulations at the bottom of this page.
