    Good day all.

    I would like to know what are the down falls/implications of using training providers that are not registered nor accredited with the SETA. Is it advisable to make use of them?

    I personally would look for alternate training providers.  If they are not accredited or registered with any SETA you can’t be sure that the course content is up to standard.  My advise, look else where.



    It depends on the course and the necessity, but most of the time – NO.

    If it is a credit-based course and the learner is to receive credits/be entered onto the National Learner Record Database (NLRD) then a provider who is not yet accredited cannot ensure this for the learner. If it is a “nice to have” course, then perhaps you can.

    Accreditation, even with its gaps, is at least a standard that providers should reach.


    No, Itebogeng. First of all they are operating illegally if they are not registered with either the DHET or a SETA, and secondly there is no accountability to any authority if things go wrong. 


    I dont entirely agree with Winnie . Our very own  Educational Institutions at the highest level  have not done much  about SAQA or Unit Standards .

    There are also Global players with excellent products who dont see the RSA SETA landscape as useful at all.

    My advice :  When looking a training look at the results the trainers have had and get testimonials from other users.

One thought on “Training providers not registered

    Just a thought. Why don’t we elect a government that believes in dignity for all, zero racism, respect and equal opportunity. Oops that may upset the unions and not be politically correct as we would have to scrap BEE, affirmative action and the Employment Equity Act. However we could entice South Africans of all races back who have skills and who are battling in other parts of the world. They could bring back the much needed skills and the desire to work, this would create about 5 jobs per skilled worker and the country would blossom. We could then lower tax as we have a larger tax base and bring about an economic revolution in Africa. We could export to China!
