A professional licence is issued by the Minister of Construction Industry based on a qualification procedure and a final examination. A person receiving the licence is recorded in the Central Property Agent Register.
To obtain the property agent licence in Poland, an individual shall:

- Have professional experience; such a professional experience may be gained at workshops organised by professional associations or at companies dealing with property transactions. Professional experience shall be written on the training report book issued before any training is started by the Ministry of Construction Industry;

The examination consist of three stages:
- The analysis of documents submitted by a candidate, including the simulation of transactions on properties;
