Application Process

Certificates of Competence issued by the Cruising Association of South Africa (CASA) are still recognised by SAMSA (see Marine Notice 13 of 2011 item 10.7.3). However local authorities may not remember CASA and may be reluctant to accept a CASA certificate. That could spoil your day. SAS recommends that folk with CASA Certificates of Competence convert these to SAS Certificates of Competence for a small fee. Click on the link below to download the application form.
