Tests shall be conducted at designated Test Centre or any location deemed to be suitable by the System Owner.

Eligibility:

SAEPT is an accreditation recommended for persons involved in the aviation sector and is made available to everyone deemed fit by NAA and/or System Owner.

Identification Document & Policy:

A valid National Identity and/or Passport with a recent recognisable photograph is currently treated as the only accepted proof of identification. All test takers must bring their original valid National Identity and/or Passport, a copy of which is to be submitted with the application. This document serves as proof of identity to be presented on the test day, being the only identification document accepted for admittance to the Test Centre. Failure to do so may lead to cancellation of the test. No refund will be applicable in this case.

Application Form & Information:

Only a fully completed application form will be considered. Incomplete applications may be rejected. Applications must be accompanied by a clear copy of the photo page of the valid photo ID without which the application will be treated incomplete and the test taker will not be registered. In the case of applications being submitted on-line (i.e. via email), it is mandatory for the test taker to provide a clear copy of the valid photo ID during the application process. Failing which, the test taker will not be permitted to apply for the test. Details on the application form are collected for the purpose of the SAEPT test. These details may be disclosed to, processed and stored by the System Owner and the Test Centre for administrative purposes. These details, together with the details of test results, may be disclosed by the System Owner to institutions or other entities to which the test taker submits an application, for the purpose of allowing such institutions or entities to verify the results of the test. If the System Owner discovers that false or altered test documentation has been provided to any of these institutions or entities, the System Owner may inform the same and provide them with the test taker’s personal details. The personal details of the test taker may be processed in an anonymous form for statistical and research purposes by the System Owner.

Information Provided by the Test Taker:

The test taker takes full responsibility for the correctness of the information provided in their application. Any information found to be incorrect at any stage will automatically lead to cancellation of the test and revocation of result. Fees paid shall also be forfeited.

Test Booking:

Test application will be accepted by the Test Owner on a first-come-first-serve basis. Test seats are limited, and the registration will close for a particular test when all seats are booked or as decided by the Test Owner.
