  • Authorization of affiliates
  • Tutor selection, training and performance review
  • Issuance of training certificates

  1. The training provider or the institute must be accredited by a SETA. “ETQA” (Their offices, policies and procedures. This can be any SETA = does not matter what type of courses they offer.)
  2. Each learning programme or qualification is accredited with the relevant SETA “ETQA” who is responsible for this programme. Also note that the word “accreditation” does not mean they SETA accredited. It must say “NQF Accredited”.

 Before you can start with any course you should ask the following questions:

  • Is the course accredited and with what SETA?
  • What is the process and duration from start to completion?
  • Are there any additional fees for support to re-submission?
  • Entry Requirements? Do you charge for registration and why?
  • What discount can I get if I do more courses with your institute?
  • What after support and resources to you offer?
