Continuous Professional Development (CPD)

The Compliance Institute Southern Africa awards SAQA-recognised designations to its members who meet the criteria. In terms of the Institute’s Awards and CPD Policies, designated members must possess and maintain an acceptable level of applied professional competence.

The overriding requirement is that a designated member is responsible for his/her own competency and should seek out opportunities that support his/her personal development. Although not a requirement, Affiliate members, i.e. non-designated members, are also encouraged to maintain a certain number of CPD hours. Please refer to the CPD policy (see link below) for more information. The CPD reporting cycle runs over a two-year period, of which the current one commenced in January 2020 and will end December 2021.


Members must retain evidence of CPD hours claimed for a period of 5 years for audit purposes, e.g. signed attendance register, certificate etc.
