Road to Registration for Candidate Engineers, Technologists and Technicians


The Candidate Academy’s philosophy is to support graduates (candidates) on their road to registration with ECSA, by helping them through the transition from theoretical training to the “how” of engineering projects and processes.   The Academy offers practical, hands-on-training relevant to experiences in the workplace.   Courses should only be attended immediately prior to the candidate commencing the project phase addressed in the course.

Why Should an Individual Attend?

This one-day course will help newly employed graduates, who should be ideally registered as candidates, to understand and navigate their way to achieve ECSA registration as competent engineers/technologists/technicians.   The course has been developed to assist candidates and employers alike, and includes tools, to make up a workplace training plan, with digital enhancements to make the planning, tracking and reporting of activities easier to manage. The Portfolio of Evidence files will also be available to offer safe and logical storage of all precious originals for future reference.


This course will help you:
  • Understand the workplace and level of competence required for registration
  • Plan the training that you need
  • Guide you through the ECSA registration process and show you how to fill in the forms and templates
  • Understand the responsibilities in the candidate phase and your relationship with mentors, supervisors and coaches
