IEPA Courses & Certification

We are offering training from beginners to advanced levels, as well as specialization training. Courses are scheduled for public attendance annually at venues in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban, Port Elizabeth and where there is a demand.

The AEE certification programs

The AEE certification programs take into account the possible diversity of education and practical experience an individual may have. The compulsory training sessions do not have pre-requisites for attendance. However, certain basic knowledge is required to be able to gain value from the training sessions.

To prepare for the advanced training of the AEE, training modules aligned to SAQA unit standards are available from training providers which provide facilitated learning content to develop candidates towards advanced AEE training. For projects, IEPA coordinates and integrates unit standard modules together with AEE program outcomes.

AEE programs have strict compliance requirements which include, but is not limited to:

  • Attending in excess of 90% of the training sessions in the chosen discipline.
  • Passing the voluntary AEE international examination in the chosen discipline with 70% or more.
  • A sliding scale of work experience is required, in relation to current qualifications held.

Candidates that do not yet meet the required work experience are granted three (3) to six (6) years – dependent on qualification applied for – to perform practical work related to the qualification they seek. The candidate will then receive a certificate which includes a statement of examination results. Within that timeframe, should the candidate still not meet the work experience requirement, the In-Training (IT) status is awarded, whereafter, the candidate has another three years to gain experience. A maximum of six (6) years after taking the training session is therefore allowed to develop the necessary skills required.

All AEE Certification qualification programs require re-certification every three (3) years subject to participation in the AEE Continuing Education Program (CEP). UNIDO and SAQA modules carry AEE credits and ECSA CPD credits for AEE renewal requirements.

AEE Certified Professionals’ status is available online on the AEE website under the directory so that industry constantly has an updated reference to the Certified Professionals who have maintained their knowledge in the world.

A holder of an AEE certification may use the designation with their name on organization letterheads, business cards, and all forms of address. Certification is for individuals only. The certification designation may not be used to imply that an organization or firm is certified.
