    Just venting a bit ………………… perhaps I should have not placed our fees for compiling the DHET application for accredited training providers. I received a call from a provider that I assisted some time ago with a verification, and she advised that she paid just over three times the fee we charge for compiling the DHET application, with endless problems from the start (and continuing). She is a small provider, and the fee that she paid is ridiculous. Please, do your costing before making the decision to make a payment to a business or consultant to assist in compiling your application to register with the DHET. It does not mean, if you pay 3-4 times more, that the service that you will get, will be the best. Just shocked and disappointed that small providers are being charged so much, and because they want to comply, they pay these fees. Just venting ……………… good heavens!

    Then there are the money makers …………. Charging providers a fee of about R600 to compile their application, the expert consultant is paid in cash, the application never reaches the DHET, the consultant’s number does not exist anymore, nowhere to be found………………….. Go figure!!

    In all honesty, if you compile the application yourself, it will take time to put it together (some providers will take 3 days – some will take 8 months or so, and give up), you need to print supporting documents (as per the requirements of the DHET), ensure that copies are certified/declared by Police Commissioner, pay the DHET R500.00 application fee (ensure your proof of payment is in the application, ringbind all the documents, deliver the application file to the DHET in Pretoria or courier it. The address is: Private Colleges, Department of Higher Education and Training, 123 Francis Baard Street, Pretoria.

    The requirements of the application, is the same for all accredited training providers.

    No electronic submissions are accepted at all, no matter who you are, who you know, how big or small your training business is (whether you train externally or internally) – the stipulation is: hard copy application (not negotiable). The fee to pay the DHET is R500.00 (not negotiable) – whether you are a one-man training provider, or a JSE listed company – the fee is the same.

    The application that you need to complete and the guidelines, is found on the DHET’s website – go to resources, then documents, then forms – scroll down to 2008, only download the FPX-01 application and guideline – not the other documents. This is what you need to work with. Yes, the guidelines are outdated, thus, you need to comply with new acts and regulations accordingly.

    I have now completed my venting, thank you for reading!
