SAQA runs four compulsory workshops for prospective professional bodies per annum. After receipt of the letter, an invitation will be sent to professional bodies providing the dates of compulsory workshops. Applications for recognition as a professional body will only be sent to professional bodies that have attended the compulsory workshop.
