THE SAHITA TRAINING IS DESIGNED BY SOUTH AFRICANS FOR SOUTH AFRICANS

  • SAHITA certification is widely recognised and respected in South Africa. See the content on the 30 Online Modules here
  • Get in-depth knowledge regarding compliance with the National Building Regulations, SANS 10400 and other relevant National Building Standards
  • The SAHITA course covers the entire South African built environment

SAHITA ONLINE LEARNING IS FOR BOTH “HOME INSPECTORS” AND “BUILDING INSPECTORS”

  • “Home inspectors” are responsible for inspecting existing buildings for the Real Estate and Insurance Industries
  • The new Property Practitioners Act will provide huge growth for the home inspection industry in SA
  • The Insurance Industry uses home inspectors to reduce risk for the insurer and for the policyholder
  • “Building inspectors” mostly work for Municipalities and for the Construction Industry. Building inspectors are responsible for compliance and quality control of new building work

WHO SHOULD DO THE SAHITA COURSE?

  • People who want to make home inspection a career
  • Estate agents who want to assess the condition of properties
  • Insurance assessors who need to understand compliance and risk issues
  • All building industry professionals, such as project managers, property managers, valuators, engineers and architects, who want to gain a wide knowledge of all aspects of the South African built environment

Here's how the SA home inspection industry can protect buyers & help agents and sellers comply with the consumer rules in the Property Practitioner’s Act

The core South African National Building Standard, SANS 10400 has recently been extensively updated. Join John Graham in 2024 for a 3-day workshop (available online or face-to-face) and gain an in-depth knowledge of all 21 parts of SANS 10400 (Parts A to XA)

BECOME A CERTIFIED PROPERTY ASSESSMENT PRACTITIONER

Property condition assessment, also known internationally as “home inspection”, or “property survey”, is one of the most exciting business opportunities in South Africa. SAHITA offers a certified professional qualification for South African Property Assessment Practitioners.

Property Assessment Practitioners include members of South Africa’s fast-growing independent home inspection industry; estate agents who want to provide a value-added service to their clients; municipal and statutory building inspectors; and insurance assessors.

The South African home inspection industry is especially suitable for small business and entrepreneurs because the prospects for growth are excellent, start-up costs are low and because a high level of personalised service will enhance the prospect of success.

On acceptance SAHITA will email you a Tax Invoice:

  • Discounted single fee of R22,999
  • Three instalments of R8,250 - total R24,750

SAHITA - what our past students say

SAHITA OFFERS 100% SOUTH AFRICAN BUILDING AND HOME INSPECTOR TRAINING

SAHITA is the first building inspection academy to equip South Africans with an all-round knowledge of South African building methods and South African building regulations and standards – including SANS 10400. SAHITA training combines detailing training on building compliance and building methods with practical knowledge on how to conduct a building inspection and compile an inspection report.

SAHITA was established in 2012 because the South African home inspection industry was completely unregulated and there were no benchmarks for training and accrediting home inspectors. HouseCheck, South Africa’s leading building inspection company (established in 2008), therefore pioneered the launch of SAHITA. SAHITA is now widely recognised for its excellent standard of training material which is fully compliant with South African building laws, regulations, standards and systems.
