The SAPTA Manifesto

Our Manifesto is a founding statement, which describes our basic philosophy, defines our mission, objectives and values, provides a environmental context and explains our professional trainer body of competence (PTBoC).

The manifesto lays the foundation for all other governance documents.

The SAPTA Code of Ethics

Our Code of Ethics is a clear description and definition of our values. It regulates our behaviour in terms of our ethical identity, our core values and our guiding principles. 

The SAPTA code of ethics is a compulsory element of the SAPTA PTBoC and before being certified as a CPT, candidates will be tested on this document.

Our Constitution

The SAPTA Constitution is a governing guide for the Board of Directors. The Boards actions and decision-making power is dependent on constitutional rules.

Futhermore the constitution authorises our policies and procedures and provides foundational definitions for the effective functioning of SAPTA.

Our Master Scorecard (not publically available)

The SAPTA Master Scorecard primarily hosts the SAPTA Vision, strategic objectives and core processes for the Board of Directors period of appointment.

The scorecard is structured as such that strategic achievement is scored every year, thus the Board can measure its effectiveness on a annual basis. Due to its confidential nature the Master Scorecard is not published on this web site.

Primarily the policy governs catogories of membership, prescribed body of competence (PTBoC), member benefits and fees, CPT Certification, CPT provider approval, and continued professional development.

The policy governs the endorsement and audit of TEC's.

TEC Procedures

The SAPTA Training Events Companies (TEC) Procedures give specific guidance to elements of the TEC policy.

Specifically the procedure prescribes actions for application and apporoval of endorsement, annual audit process and blacklisting of non-reputable TEC's. It also presents a scorecard for endorsement approval.

Financial Policy
