How much does it cost to renew competency?

The cost of renewing a competency certificate in South Africa can vary based on several factors, including the type of competency (firearm, security, etc.), the specific training or assessments required for renewal, administrative fees, and any changes in legislation that might impact the renewal process. Here are some estimated costs as of my last update:

  1. Firearm Competency Renewal: The cost for renewing a firearm competency certificate can range from approximately R400 to R1000 or more. This cost includes application fees, administrative charges, and potentially additional costs for refresher training or assessments.
  2. Security Competency Renewal: Renewing a security competency certificate might cost between R500 and R1500, depending on the security company, training requirements, and administrative fees.

These estimates are general and could vary significantly based on individual circumstances, such as the region, specific training needs, and any changes in fees or regulations since my last update.

It’s crucial to inquire directly with the South African Police Service (SAPS) or the relevant regulating authority responsible for the particular competency renewal for the most accurate and up-to-date information regarding costs. Additionally, additional costs might arise if there are specific training courses or assessments required for renewal, so individuals should budget accordingly.
