The South African Council for Project and Construction Management Professions (SACPCMP) is a statutory body established by section two (2) of the Project and Construction Management Professions Act (Act No. 48 of 2000).

The SACPCMP was established to provide for statutory professional registration and regulation of the project and construction management professions in order to protect public interest and advance project and construction management, and construction health and safety education.

The objectives of the SACPCMP are therefore to provide guidance and frameworks within which the professionals within the construction management environment are to operate, and to ensure that effective guidance policies and frameworks on Continuing Professional Development (CPD) are established, implemented and consistently applied by the Council.

The SACPCMP is also empowered by section 13(k) of Act No. 48 of 2000 to determine, after consultation with the voluntary associations and registered professionals, the conditions relating to, and the nature and extent of CPD.

In order to obtain CPD hours, Registered Persons must be engaged in the activities of the categories outlined under each knowledge/skills domain in the table below:

Category A: Core knowledge and Non-Core knowledge
Category B: Mentorship and Development
Category C: Ongoing Practice
