Just a quick inquiry on the above association. Is anyone here a member? Is there an office? On their website i only see cell phone numbers. I tried calling the assistant and the membership person, the phones ring but no respond. Is there any other skills development association?
There is most definitely an Association for Skills Development in South Africa. We are a SAQA registered professional body. Inbox us at email@example.com and we will provide you with the details. I am in the KZN region but we do have other branches.
I’m the Vice-Chair of the APPETD Board (Association of Private Providers for Education, Training and Development). Our CEO is Cynthia Reynders. Yes of course we are recognised by SAQA and we hundreds of accredited providers that are members. You may join APPETD as an individual too. Why don’t you visit the website for contact details and you an also see the list of providers that partner with us. We would be very happy to have you on board. Inbox me if I can assist you further.
I am sorry that you had difficulty in contacting the association. As my colleagure Charlene has said, ASDSA is a SAQA registered professional body and we are very much in existence as an association for skills development practitioners across all fields. We will be very happy to assist you.
