Professional Registration

Process Controllers

The Water Institute of Southern Africa (WISA) became recognised as a professional body by the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) in 2013. The first professional designation registered with SAQA is that of Professional Process Controller – Pr. PC Water. This process culminated with the first 2 Professional Process Controllers being registered by WISA in 2014. This registration is now open to all process controllers who meet the required criteria. This ensures high standards are met as well as legislation adhered to. In conjunction, WISA has also set a Process Controller Division to assist with the dissemination of knowledge and offer services to Pr. PC Water. Please find below the code of conduct for Professional Process Controllers.
