Continuing Professional Development

All registered architectural professionals are required to renew their registrations with the South African Council for the Architectural Profession (SACAP) every five years. In order to obtain a renewal, the registered person must accumulate a prescribed number of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) credits during each five-year cycle.

CPD takes place throughout the professional career as a means of enhancing skills, education and training. The process allows architectural professionals to keep up with current developments within their field, and provides opportunities to reach the highest standards of competence and expertise.

Registered professionals are responsible and accountable for ensuring their own CPD compliance.
