There is a plethora of First Aid unit standards out there, so pick the ones most appropriate for your purpose. You need to select those unit standards that comply with the DoL content requirements for the First Aid Levels 1 - 3, as…"
Indeed probably one of my biggest concerns is the sales and marketing functions of the bigger "reputable" providers. They "sell" training and assessment services beyond their accredited scope, and about which they…"
"Hi Shawn,I agree with Jacqui wholeheartedly, but just ensure that the training provider understands that this 50% is a non-refundable amount to cover your preparation costs in the event of such cancellations. If this is made clear and the…"
I think if you go through the list of Professional Bodies on the SAQA website, you will find both statutory (compulsory membership for that sector) and non-statutory bodies (Voluntary membership). There are a number of bodies in…"
First, regarding the international qualification, one needs to ask whether this qualification is pertinent to the needs of the persons enrolling, and is the qualification presented under the accreditation of the international body…"
"Well, well! Lance say welcome to my fellow conspirator and adopted little sister with the voice of reason!
Lynel, perhaps you have touched on a little more here. I think the range of training that training providers take on is often more than…"
I think Alexander was referring to "legal" re-certification albeit in a different sense.
Lance, I have had a number of fairly recent experiences with this very topic and it calls into question so many issues. Does…"
Technically correct, but your wording of Learner/Assessor ratio is incorrect. It is the Learner/Facilitator ratio that is 4:1. There is only one reference to a Learner/Assessor ratio in the NCOP, and that is "1 hour…"
Couldn't agree with you more, although there a number of instances where regulatory compliance requires "re-certification".
In terms of the Driven Machinery Regulations, it has always been a requirement that Operators must…"
There is nothing consistent amongst the SETA's regarding this. Some have available material or are currently arranging, others have some material available but it is generally overbearing and not print friendly in terms of size…"
"Certainly Des, I have said it already, in your circumstances, I see no conflict of interest. What you have laid out as verification is the way that it should be. Because you understand the system you work in a manner that justifies your…"
"Hey Lady L, welcome to the fray!
I agree that under our current bunch of verifiers (Des excluded of course!) and without any proper controls or guidelines from SETA's, verification by another provider is suspect. But it is sad as you…"

Thanks for your message. My personal opinion is that the training and education field is over regulated, and like a monolith or a 3-toed sloth simply gathering moss and mass! The bottom-up view that I will be taking will seek to provide a different QA paradigm - which has not yet been designed! Hopefully my research will lead to the creation of this new paradigm.
Hi Nigel Thanks for your message. It’s early days yet and I have not started my actual research but I will be looking for people to survey/interview, etc when the time comes, so will definitely keep you in mind. I think this website might also give me access to private and/or workplace providers - I hope so anyway.
Obviously I am doing a lot of reading at the moment as I will be doing an international global developments overview as well as looking at the politics and economics of the situation as well as the developments in SA as they unfold with the QCTO etc
The research proper will probably only happen early next year once I’ve worked my way through the preliminary stages of the doctorate but the proposal has been accepted.
