During Mediatech Africa 2017, SACIA launched its new TLE professional designations for theatre and live event professionals. To apply for the designation, individuals are required to write a 100-question multiple-choice exam that tests their knowledge across 15 competencies including:

• Audio
• Av operations
• Cabling and signal management
• Display
• Event power
• Health and Safety
• Laser
• Lighting
• Management
• Pyro
• RF
• Rigging
• Stage craft
• Temporary structures
• Video

The questions used in the SACIA TLE designation tests have been compiled by a community of expert practitioners active in the market. Questions are randomly selected from a question bank and are assessed on an ongoing basis to ensure they remain valid. Additional questions are also added as technology evolves.

The exam fee is R500 (US$40 paid via PayPal). During the introductory month, 100% of this fee will be donated to the SOS Fund to assist technicians who are in need of special assistance.
