Invitation : Professional Practice Examination (PPE) - Call for Examiners



WHEREAS the Architectural Profession Act 2000, (Act No. 44 of 2000) (the Act) prescribes in Section 19(2) that the Council must be satisfied that an applicant who applies for registration as a professional

Has demonstrated his or her competence as measured against standards determined by the council for the relevant category of registration; and 
Has passed any additional examinations that may be determined by the council.

Construction Law and Building Contracts,

The Resolution of Building Disputes

Examiners will be required to set either Paper 1 or Paper 2 or both, as determined by SACAP.
