Once the applicant is of the opinion that he/she is ready for a theoretical assessment, the applicant will have to do 2 separate assessments (Summative Assessment A and Summative Assessment B).
To pass these assessments you need to have a minimum of 50% on the Meat Classification Manual and a minimum of 75% for the Red Meat Classification Regulations.
If you do not achieve a passing score on an assessment the first time, you must wait at least 5 days before retaking the next assessments. If you do not achieve a passing score the second time, you must wait at least a 14-day period before retaking the assessment a third time. A 14-day waiting period will also be imposed for the fourth and fifth subsequent assessment retakes. You may not take a given assessment any more than five times per year.
From the 1st of April 2014, any new applicant needs to register with SAMIC before he/she can start with the Meat Classification Course.
