You are saying exactly what I mean.
For a package docs - all your reg papaers and so forth it is not an unreasonable fee
It would depend on the service provider though - some I have not charged
IF a doctor can charged thousands for a…"
"Graeme, I would charge that for a commitment fee only, i.e where I just sign an MOU, and send my CV, ID as well as Seta documents.
For the actual Assessments / Moderation I charge per credit per unit standard. That is where my real value added is.
This is not a realistic fee - For an mou - accreditation documents and resume - so to say a full package to help you register is worth about 3- 4 k
My fee touches on 4000 per package - a serious provider will pay this - remeber your constituent…"
"Surely, a small fee, (R450, the price os a meal for two) as proposed elsewhere, is something that even the smallest service provider can afford, in order to show good faith?
To my mind, the problem lies with the ridiculously long times it takes to…"
"I see that there is some great comments and I agree with some. I want to share my experiences as a provider - an ethical one. When registering a qualification you need to provide a list of assessors and moderators that you will use when you role out…"
"Thank you Rolf, you have just reminded me of how independent Assessors and Moderators can be "abused". There are providers that only make use of Assessors/Moderators in order to obtain accreditation. Once that is done, you…"

"Hi Rolf, I have had the same experience ,I think if as a provider you are honest from the onset that you are need the MOU for accreditation purposes also stating the possibility of utilising the services should you get a contract is fair enough. We…"
"It is disappointing how people 'use' you. I agree that we should all charge a fee and then say the fee can be deducted from our service when they make use of one. Example - I assess and then deduct the service fee from my bill.

Hi Rolf, Yes I am in Melkbosstrand, often up to Jhb as I run Engineer Placements with a partner resident there. I also give project management courses, mainly where and why they go wrong, intro to critical chain execution management and ambitious target structures; also trying to get a major training programme going for GCC Engineers in municipalities. Let's meet sometime, could have common ground as you mentioned
Hi Rolf, good to make contact again. SPE seems to have faded into a relic of its former self. It lost approval as a VA with ECSA as a result of not complying with the statutory requirements, and had a running conflict of sorts with ECSA.
The various specific discipline VAs are alive and well and have a good relationship betwwen themselves and with ECSA. They assist in providing the resources for the various engineering committees such as the PACs. What are you up to?
