If an applicant holds a foreign qualification and If
you do not qualify , please change your application type to a Educational Evaluation application form.
ECSA will assess the
application for completeness and, if so, evaluate the academic qualification.
If the application is incomplete, the candidate is advised of any shortcomings
which must be rectified as soon as possible.
ECSA requires as the
baseline qualification, a National Diploma (NDip) in engineering obtained from
a South African Technikon, and which has been accredited by ECSA. A
qualification assessed by ECSA to be equivalent will also be recognised.
Once an applicant’s academic
qualification is recognised the applicant is registered as a "Candidate
Engineering Technician". Candidates are advised in writing of their
registration and a certificate of registration is prepared and posted to them
as soon as possible thereafter.
The process described above
represents a very concise and simplified description of the process.
Persons who were registered
as "Engineering Technicians in Training" in terms of Act 114 of 1990,
are deemed to be registered as "Candidate Engineering Technicians "
in terms of Act 46 of 2000.
