Accredited Service Providers
As the Assessment Quality Partner (AQP) for the Tax Professional Qualification, the SAIT is responsible for the approval and recommendation of providers for the Knowledge and Practical Skills Components. Once SAIT has approved the Knowledge and Practical Skills Component Service Providers, SAIT then makes a recommendation to the Quality Council for Trades and Occupations (QCTO) for accreditation as service provider. SAIT is responsible to approve employers that provide the Workplace Experience Components of the Qualifcation.

Learners from non-accredited programmes and individuals already in practice are given the opportunity to enter into and progress in the learning programme leading to the Tax Professional Qualification, by writing the Knowledge Competency Assessment.
Accredited Skills Development Providers
Practical Skills Component Accredited Providers
The Practical Skills Component can be completed through accredited short courses at one of the listed Accredited Tertiary Institutions or Accredited Employer Training Academies.
