Being associated with a SAQA recognised Professional Body that has the interests of the ICT profession at heart is the primary benefit of being a member of the IITPSA. Using the post-nominals "AMIITPSA" and "MIITPSA", or the registered professional designation "PMIITPSA" after your name tells everyone that you are serious about your profession and your career. 
Members have access to various ''in-service'' benefits such as discounted entry to ICT related conferences, workshops and seminars, as well as benefiting from a number of  product discounts and the monthly e-Newsletter. Reciprocal membership agreements with like-minded professional bodies in other countries also offer significant cost-savings to our members.
