South African Critical Skills Work Visa Programme.

The process by which you gain the South African Critical Skills Work Visa is quite straight forward. If you are an IT professional, you are required to sit an external multiple choice exam organised and conducted by   PearsonVue . This is the first step. Roegate College works in partnership with The Institute of Chartered IT Professional (ICITP), South Africa to prepare you for the examination.


If an IT Professional has at least 4 years’ work experience in the IT field, they may decide to seek an exemption from sitting the external exam. Exemption Fee is R4900. To qualify for exemption, you will be required to submit an application for exemption. The candidate must go through a SAQA (South African Qualification Authority) evaluation of his or her result.

  • Entrepreneurship for IT Professionals
