Entrance academy / Entrance examination

The entrance academy takes place for new SAOT members once a year and lasts 4 days long. Attendance is not obligatory. However, the entrance academy examination, which takes place on the fifth day (directly after the entrance academy) has to be passed by every new member. This is required to become a regular SAOT member. New SAOT members, who hold a Master degree from MAOT, do not have to pass this examination and earn the CPs automatically by having passed the MAOT examinations.
