PROCESS FLOW  for the TRAIN THE TRAINER or FACILITATORS course.

WARNING: It is quite common for Training Providers to issue false certificate on the last day for the training session. According to the SAQA and the ETDP SETA Policy, can a training provider only issue the final certificate once assessment, internal and external moderation including SETA verification was completed. This process average takes between 2 to 6 weeks. Any training provider who offer reduced promises should be questioned and reported for fraudulent activity.

Learning Process_2

ACCREDITATION AND QUESTIONS YOU SHOULD ASK

The criteria for the accreditation of training providers define a number of requirements that include:

  • Administrative procedures and record keeping and policies.
  • Management review
  • Authorization of affiliates
  • Tutor selection, training and performance review
  • Issuance of training certificates
  • Learner Support
  • Delivery, Assessment and Moderation practices

NOTE: There are basically two different types of accreditation:

  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”.
