How much do I pay for Psira certificate?

The fees for a PSIRA (Private Security Industry Regulatory Authority) certificate in South Africa can vary based on the grade you are applying for and the specific policies or changes made by PSIRA. Here’s a general estimate:

Sample Fee Structure:

  • Grade D: For an entry-level Grade D PSIRA certificate, the application fee can range from approximately ZAR 220 to ZAR 330.
  • Other Grades: Higher-level grades, such as Grade C, B, or A, might have different fee structures, typically increasing with the level of certification.

Additional Costs:

  • Training Fees: Before applying for a PSIRA certificate, candidates usually undergo PSIRA-accredited training courses, which have their own costs. These fees vary depending on the training institution, location, and duration of the course.
  • Renewal Fees: After obtaining the initial certificate, there are renewal fees every 24 months to maintain the certification.

Important Considerations:

  • Fee structures can change, so it’s advisable to check the most recent fee schedules on the official PSIRA website or contact PSIRA directly for the current fees.
  • Training institution fees for the required PSIRA-accredited courses are separate from the application fees for the certificate.

It’s crucial to ensure that all fees are paid to PSIRA or the accredited training institution following their guidelines and requirements. Be sure to budget accordingly for both the training costs and the application fees when pursuing a PSIRA certificate in South Africa.
