Applying For Affiliation To ACRP

Applying for affiliation to CGMP and CMTP

Application forms for affiliation under ACRP’s Council for General Ministry Practitioners (CGMP) or the Council for Ministry Training Practitioners (CMTP) are available under “documents” (coming soon) on this website.

  • Persons who have the relevant SAQA accredited or SAQA recognised qualification will be awarded the relevant designation directly upon submission of the application form together with the required supporting documentation and proof of payment of the prescribed fees.
  • Persons who do not have the relevant SAQA accredited or SAQA recognised qualification may also apply for professional designations. In this case it will be done through a process of Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). RPL is done, based on evidence of a person’s years of ministry experience. Qualifications and other training that are not SAQA accredited or SAQA recognised, are also taken into account. To apply for a designation through RPL, the RPL application form needs to be completed and submitted together with the required supporting documentation and proof of payment of the fees.
