It would appear that many of those providers who applied for registration with DHET and received evaluation reports dated before 19 June 2017, are not aware that the Registrar has suggested that the applications be re-evaluated according to the new criteria. This request has to be submitted by the provider to DHET. Many of the evaluation reports contained criteria where CC’s were not accepted and Accounting Officer Reports were rejected. DHET is now accepting these, as well as amending the requirements regarding OHS Certification, Surety and Prospectus/Calendar/ Brochure. If you have received an evaluation report which indicates that you are not in compliance with any of the above, and your report is dated before 19 June 2017, please submit a request to DHET to re-evaluate your application according to the new criteria, on instruction of the Registrar.
In terms of the accreditation reports, please note that your accreditation scope needs to be confirmed with an official letter of accreditation and scope issued by the relevant SETA/’s.
For everybody else, if you are a private training provider and you are accredited with a SETA or QCTO for any qualification, part qualification or even a single unit standard registered on the SAQA NQF, you are required to Register with DHET. There is currently no deadline set, and applications are open until such time as the Minister has set a new date. Don’t be caught at the last minute, take the time to register now. The penalties for non-registration are quite harsh, and with the new criteria implemented by DHET, there is now no reason for non-compliance.
