The South African Institute of Security (SAIS) was established in
Johannesburg in 1978 – and was responsible for drawing up
the original training standards for the security industry.
Our aim is to promote continual professional development and to
support the maintenance and enhancement of this development by security
professionals. This includes the professional recognition of security
practitioners through skills development training (Sector Safety
and Security Training and Education Authority) and diplomas/degrees.
The Institute is managed by a Board
of Governors, comprising a Chairman, Vice-Chairman and nine
Governors are responsible for administering the following portfolios:
- Endorsement of “training programmes”
- Verification of membership
