WHY should I enroll with SAHITA?

  • SAHITA is committed to assist existing graduates in attaining accreditation.
  • HouseCheck, South Africa’s largest home inspection business is now expanding fast and is planning to recruit large numbers of new inspectors to satisfy the fast-growing demand for its services.  HouseCheck only employs SAHITA graduates.
