There are a lot of variables that impact the cost of training, and unfortunatly the more specialised the training, the more it will cost – not because the training is particularly more expensive, but numbers are going to be much lower but the cost of jumping through all the hoops of the SETAS still adds tremendously to the cost.
For example I am busy submitting another program for approval for which I will probably only have 50 – 100 learners over the next 5 years. the actual training and materials I need for this program have ben in existence formany years, but the extras needed by the SETA have meant 89 hours cumulative computer work and 349 pages of ‘stuff’ which had to be generated for the application. This is where our costs come from…
Whatever happenned to keeping it simple which was the buzzwords back in 2000/2001
I find no acceptable excuse for “Common” high volume unit standards having high training costs – this is inexcusable.
