Enrolment takes places online through our Virtual Exam Centre. Select the top icon that reads Enrol and log in with your Id or passport number.

The facility to purchase an exam is only available to members of SAIFM. More information regarding membership can be found on www.saifm.co.za.

You may elect to become an affiliate member by agreeing to adhere to the SAIFM Code of Conduct by checking the appropriate box when registering or updating your information, thereby allowing you to purchase an exam.

Should you wish to purchase by credit card, you may continue. Should you wish to use an alternative form of payment, you can close the internet and follow the procedure outlined below.

Purchase the exam by credit card

You can purchase the exam(s) 〈module(s)〉 you wish to write by adding them to your shopping basket. Then you proceed to checkout to pay by credit card through the secure online credit card gateway. Just follow the instructions on screen. Access to the learning material will be automatic after the payment has been made.

Purchase the exam by electronic transfer

NOTE that our prices increase on 1 August each year. If you make a payment before 1 August but do not send and confirm receipt thereof before 1 August, when prices increase, you will be liable to pay the new price.

If you wish to pay by cash deposit or electronic transfer (EFT), the following procedure applies:

  • Proof of the payment (stamped bank deposit slip or EFT confirmation) must be emailed to SAIFM via email to either Susan Jansen van Rensburg or Hayley Pfeifer
  • Your name, ID number and title(s) of the exam(s) you wish to purchase must be clearly noted in the email.
  • Immediately after sending the email, you need to phone our office (011 802 4768) to confirm that the email has been received.
  • Please allow approximately 2 business days for SAIFM staff to load your exam. It is NOT automatic as is the case with credit card transactions.

It is very important to note that if the above procedure is not followed correctly, your exam(s) may not be loaded for you. Please DO NOT instruct the bank to automatically send the the payment if paying via EFT – rather have the remittance sent to yourself and then forward to SAIFM with the required details.

Company payments

Should you need a quotation before you can remit payment, you can email Susan Jansen van Rensburg or Hayley Pfeifer to request one. The following information must be supplied when requesting a quotation:

  • Name of company
  • Address of company
  • VAT number of company
  • Name/s of candidate/s and ID or Passport number/s (Note all candidates must have their information registered on the Virtual Exam Centre before a quotation will be issued)
  • Exams/s required for the candidate/s

Once payment has been made, the procedure as outlined above should be followed.

Upon receipt of proof of payment, SAIFM will issue a tax invoice.

Cash payments

We regrettably cannot accept cash payment at our premises, so if you wish to pay by cash you will need to follow the same procedure for cash payments as EFT payments.
