The training provider conducts the RPL and assesses and moderates the POE or whatever the requirements might be. On completion the provider applies to the ETDP SETA for verification. The verification process should happen quite quickly after the provider applies. Once verification has been completed the ETDP SETA issues a statement of results and the learner if the learner was assessed as competent. The entire process depends on meeting all requirements. Should they be met the process could take up to 2 to 6 months. Hope this helps.
