SAIPA encourages and supports a culture of ongoing learning, personal and professional development and empowerment by providing opportunities for the continuous development of their members. One of these opportunities is the SAIPA CPD Events, held nationally throughout the year. Engaging in CPD activities ensures that both academic and practical qualifications do not become out-dated or obsolete; allowing individuals to continually ‘up skill’ or ‘re-skill’ themselves.
SAIPA Membership Benefits
SAIPA also encourages non-members to attend their CPD events for practical examples and this is just another of the benefits to being a SAIPA member. The SAIPA CPD programme is aimed at updating your skills in an effective and efficient manner that will help you to:
- Improve your professional capacity,
- Achieve competence in specific areas that require additional knowledge and expertise,
- Apply your professional knowledge, skills, values and ethics to professional activities and responsibilities, and
- Increase your credibility, transparency, accountability and stay relevant in terms of compliance and governance.
The annual SAIPA CPD calendar is created to address challenges faced by a Professional Accountant (SA) both in practice, as a trainee, or those working in the public sector or in corporate & industry.
Topics are selected in the broad categories of tax, ethics, and accounting or International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).
SAIPA CPD seminars are offered as both physical seminars all over the country and as webinars, which allow you to update your knowledge from the comfort of your home or office.
