    Thank you Nigel. I contacted them but was ignored as usual. ETDP is now a total disaster and have become a law unto themselves.

    Does anyone know where their new offices are?

  • George Madisha

    Hi All

    Just saw the invite now and with all fairness i am unable to attend at such short notice, please give us feedback as what transpired if this workshop do take place

    Hi everybody,
    Hang fire with any arrangements, it appears that the Municipality is busy repairing water connections and the venue for the training has been affected. ETDP are postponing and will announce new dates.

    Hi Des,
    I was notified about this late yesterday afternoon, in a round about way, and subsequently posted the notice to assist both the ETDP staff member and ETDP providers. I agree it is a little on the late side, but perhaps ETDP should be approached to consider postponing or adding additional workshops with sufficient notice? It is most certainly disrespectful to drop a notice like this with somewhat threatening elements at such a late date. As I am not an ETDP accredited provider, perhaps you could take up the reigns on this one? Or perhaps contact Pierre Wepener to take up the issue? I will provide any support I can.

    You are most welcome Des. I am glad that you received the message. At least we try to inform what is going on. I am not a provider, but we felt that it is important to at least try to get the word out. You are most welcome. Keep up the good work

  • Des Squire

    Oh Wow – this is not fantastic news. We must just drop everything and be there on the dates mentioned. Were you as a provider notified personally? I was not and I am a provider. Can you just drop all your engagements and attend something at such short notice. And worst of all if you do not attend and complete the forms YOU WILL BE DEACTIVATED.
    Why do we as providers accept this treatment from the SETA’s?

  • Lynel Farrell

    Oh wow, this is fantastic news. We need to get providers to go to this workshop(s) for sure!! An opportunity to get more information and a better understanding!!!! Yippieee!!
