SACIA award three designations to industry practitioners working in event management. To receive a designation, candidates must write an online multiple-choice exam and provide a Portfolio of Evidence supporting their claim of competence. They also require several year’s professional experience. These examinations are conducted by the SACIA Certification Council, which guides and administer all aspects of our certification programme. The tests are written online at a time and place convenient to the individual member. The exam questions are constantly under review and improvement, and have been checked by an academic panel comprising academics from the Central University of Technology, Cape Peninsula University of Technology, Tshwane University of Technology, Invictus Education Group, Varsity College, the Aleit Academy and the Get Smarter Education Institute.
Individuals wanting to earn a designation in event management are assessed on their understanding of 25 competencies listed within a competency framework (Event Management Body of Knowledge) that covers event administration, event management, event design, event operations, event marketing and event risk.
