Heindrich du Plessis: Challenges in the Geomatics Profession: Registration, Accreditation and Self-assessment (click here for more information)
The objective of this tutorial is to explain to the audience the assessment and subsequent registration procedures that follow an application to register with the SAGC, secondly to explain the changes in accreditation and re-accreditation procedures and thirdly to explain the use of the SaT during the self review process of Institutions of Higher Education as well as for applicants with non-accredited qualifications to demonstrate how the tool can assist them to identify weaknesses or gaps in their qualifications. The tutorial will end with a short report back on the progress made with the development of post graduate qualifications that can be offered using distance learning methodologies to accumulate credits through short courses (extended CPD courses) that may lead to post graduate qualifications or to address gaps in existing qualifications. The tutorial is motivated by the need of the geomatics profession, industry and academia to be better informed on the registration including dual registration, accreditation as well as re-accreditation, SaT and solutions offered to address academic shortcomings in the geomatics field.
