    Scenario:
    Training company trains people while in the process of accreditation. Learners complete assessment and are deemed competent. Said training company has had no feedback for accreditation – can Certificates of Competency be issued to the learners with the name of the company and Accreditation Pending on the certificates?

    Hi Tess,

    Nope. Training companies can not do “accredited” training until they have a Seta report and number. It is not accredited in any capacity until that point.

    Of course the content and assessment instruments used may well be compliant, but there is no external validation of that and therefore the training/assessment is not accredited. These learners will have to undergo an RPL process in order to achieve their certificates of competence.

    Hope that helped!

    Andrea, can certificates of completion be issued then? With clear indication that the said company is not accredited yet and should they wish to undergo RPL once the accreditation is approved they may do so?

    Hey Andrea, Tass. Hello Deonie. I assume the question relates to SETAs and probably a learnership. “Accreditation pending” may not be used. The learners should have been registered/uploaded by an accredited provider and learnership agreements should be in place. If non-accredited use of assessment and moderation tools has taken place “competency” may be technically be used as it is not a reserved term, although I would advise against it. Completion is safer. The qualification cannot be conferred, nor statements of results issued without accreditation and due process. RPL can be used, so it would be useful to align Delivery and RPL requirements and tools, wherever possible, to minimise the “extra” work that may be required for RPL purposes.
