PhD holders automatically qualifies for CSV, CSV first before PR. The department of home affairs only proposed that postgraduate student in critical skill areas will be allowed to qualify for CSV, as at now it has not been implemented. Professional body depends on tour area of expertise.

firstly, you need to apply for SAQA by sending your academic documents for evaluation.

you need to join an association in your chosen field and apply for membership and skill confirmation.

you need to prove 5 years work experience in your profession.
