Why should I make use of accredited training?
Providing accredited training that has programme approval with the applicable SETA (South Africa) or NQA (Namibia) ensures that your staff received the appropriate credits for the training undertaken as well as your organisation being able to reclaim your SDL or VET Levies
How do I know if the provider is accredited or not?
Any accredited provider should be able to produce an Accreditation Number which is allocated by the relevant SETA (South Africa) or NQA (Namibia). You can also contact the applicable SETA or NQA via their respective websites to check whether the provider is accredited. Do not merely take the provider's word for it.
If I do online training how do the assessments get done?
At the moment there is no system in place to allow the online uploading of evidence for assessments. When you enrol on a course you will be given the option of assessments and we will be notified immediately. we will contact you and ,make the necessary arrangements for you to submit your evidence for assessment
Why should I make use of online training?

Can I reclaim my training levy for non-accredited courses?
With SETA grants and accreditation requirements in South Africa, there is a misconception that organisations qualify for SETA grants only for accredited programmes. This is not correct. The payment of SETA grants is regulated by the Government Gazette, no. 9867, Vol. 570, 3 December 2012, no. 35940. These Regulations clearly state that the SETAs “must allocate a mandatory grant to a levy paying employer” that has submitted a WSP and ATR by the regulated date, has provided all the information required in the regulated template, and is up to date with skills levy payments. Furthermore, the template in the Regulations (Section C: Skills Development) allows employers to include ALL planned training in the report; not only accredited programmes. So if you specify non-accredited training on your WSP (Workplace Skills Plan) you will still be eligible for the 40% mandatory grant
In Namibia, you will currenty qualifiy for your 50% VET levy rebate if you complete your training and enter the data onto the VETMiS system. Due the lack of registered unit standards and therefore lack of accredited providrs, you can for now still claim back your VET levy if:
+ You are registered the VETMiS system with NTA as an employer
+ You submit attendance registeres, paid invoices, proof of training conducted and records of results achieved to NTA by 7 May of every year
NTA have a further 35% they pay as a Key Skills Priority grant for programesr of training initiatives they launch
How long before I get my certificate once I have completed the course?
Within 10 working days after you have submitted your final quiz we will post your results on your dashboard. If you were successful your certificate will be uploaded at the same time.
If you chose the assessment option we will post your results only once we have received all the required assessment documentation.
What is a Virtual Classroom
A virtual classroom is a form of online training , but as opposed to the normal online training courses where you register and can then access video lectures that have been previously recorded, in a virtual classroom you enter an environment similar to a webinar where you are live with the facilitator and can interact with them and your fellow classmates even though you are all in different locations.
With virtual classroomm you can chat to each other through typed messages in the chatroom, you can interact verbally with the facilitator and other students through the classroom, you can share content from your PC or laptop to the group and you can have access to all slides and visual materials the facilitator shows in a normal classroom.
In a virtual classroom you can even have a combination of online learners along with a standard classroom full of learners
