  • Emeritus Provision
    Emeritus achievement of ES P-AP is available to those SSSI members and non-members who have retired as an ES P-AP and wish to maintain the recognition of their professional standing in retirement. Emeritus ES P-AP is an honorary recognition and as such does not require an annual CPD return to maintain certification.

Or (at minimum) AQF/NZQF Level 6 certification and further education (to be gained either from a Non-Survey Diploma/Degree or alternatively through Course Points, Short courses and workshops, and Seminars and Conferences together) along with a minimum of 4 years of documented work experience. 
  • Long Term Practice Provision

Certification is invaluable to individuals as they move through all stages of their careers. It is a formal recognition that an individual is an expert in their field and keeps up to date with current technologies and direction of the industry. Certification can also present a competitive edge and provide new opportunities to take individuals further in their career journey.

Certification is also beneficial for employers and businesses, helping them to provide clients with assurance that the work they carry out will be to high industry standards and will cement their position as trusted advisors.
