SAIPA Training Process

Once a trainee has completed their degree and obtained practical experience by completing a three year learnership with an SAIPA-accredited training centre, they are required to write and pass the SAIPA Professional Evaluation (PE) Examination. This determines a trainee’s ability to integrate academic knowledge with the practical skills required in the workplace.

Once the above requirements have been met, the person
can register as a profesional accountant (SA) at SAIPA.
