Introduction

 

The Professional Skills Modules have been purpose-written for the SACQSP and based on unit standards developed by the SGB for Quantity Surveying. There are 18 Professional Skills Modules (PSM) that will be individually assessed. Candidates, (unless specific written exemption is granted) will be required to complete all 18 modules and will be issued certificates of competency for each module passed.

The relevant study material is only available on the SACQSP website. Six (6) modules will be delivered on a 12-week semester cycle. Candidates may only enroll for a maximum of three (3) new modules per semester, unless they are undertaking only the reexamination of modules as granted per the PSM Policy. On payment of the enrolment fee, each module information can be electronically downloaded. The files are in PDF format and range in size from 40 to 70 A4 pages. Candidates will automatically be enrolled on the dedicated module forum page where they are free to post questions and comments pertaining to the subject matter. A subject specialist will periodically monitor the study forum to answer/steer candidates as necessary.

The dates for the examinations and submission of assignments will be published on the PSM calendar.

Module Costs

 

Selected Modules to be undertaken by candidates are charge for individually. There are 2 stages of enrolment and billing; i.e. (a) enrolment and online assessment R300.00 Ex VAT and (b) examination R200.00 Ex VAT.

(a) Initial enrolment - Candidates enrol for each module on-line via the SACQSP website. Payment can be done on-line via credit card or debit card, alternatively, payment can be made via EFT or direct deposit and once the accounts department has accepted the proof of payment, an e-mail with the link to your module will be sent to you. The initial enrolment fee includes the cost of learning and the online assessment.

(b) Examination – Only after being notified by the SACQSP that the online assessment is acceptable, you will be permitted to enrol for the module examination online. Payment can be done on-line via credit card or debit card, alternatively, payment can be made via EFT or direct deposit and once the accounts department has accepted the proof of payment, a unique examination number will be issued on-line. The examination booking sheet needs to be presented on the day of the examination and at the scheduled time as proof of payment and is used as your unique identifier on the examination script. No candidate will be permitted to write the examination without having such a booking sheet.

The enrolment cost and the examination booking fee are as determined annually by the SACQSP and published on the SACQSP website. Candidates who fail the examination will have to wait until that module is repeated in the next year's semester of Professional Skills Modules, and enrol afresh.
