The following was received from ECSA:
It has come to the attention of the Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA) that certain providers have been impersonating the ECSA brand on their non-validated activity material in order to extort money from unsuspecting ECSA registered persons.
To avoid being misled by these unscrupulous providers, please note the following:
• All activities validated for the ECSA CPD program are listed on the ECSA’s website
• The validation number of the CPD activity can be obtained from the activity provider or from the marketing material of the activity
• The validity of the activity can be verified by visiting following link: https://engineeringcouncilsa.microsoftcrmportals.com/cpd-activities/ and using the validation number in the search field.
• If no information is returned; the activity is not validated and therefore cannot be recorded under Category 1: Development Activities.
ECSA therefore requests registered persons to first confirm the validity of the CPD activity for Category 1: Developmental Activities before making payment to any activity provider.
