The Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA) recognises certain Voluntary Associations (VAs) of which membership can be obtained by professionals. A requirement from ECSA is that the associations are encouraged to present CPD activities, as well as assist their members in identifying CPD activities initiated by private providers.

The registered VAs are used as vehicles by ECSA to validate and monitor courses, seminars and conferences offered for CPD credits by private providers to ensure that the activities are of adequate standard.
