CIPPT

CIPPT Information

Training in South Africa has been a dynamic field with an incredibly robust growth in the past fifteen years due to the changing education and training landscape. It is therefore encouraging that we can harness this growth and launch training as a designated profession, allowing all roles within the education and training environment to find a home. CIPPT is this legitimate home.
