    The latest is that Providers of First Aid training have to re-register with the dept. of labour, irrespective of the fact that we are Accredited with a Seta.
    Can someone please shed more light on this?

    I am also looking for the regulation which determines how long a First aid Certificate should be valid for, as some providers issue certificates valid for two years and stakeholders are confused as to who is right.

    Hi Pieter, the Regulation requires that all First Aid training providers must be accredited by a SETA before they will be considered for DoL Approval. This was mainly for DoL Approved training providers who did not have SETA accreditation, and have been given until March 2020 in order to achieve accreditation. This is much the same process as the LMO Approval.

    There is not a Regulation that specifies validity periods for First Aid Certificates, this is found in the “APPROVED FIRST AID TRAINING
    ORGANISATIONS, INFORMATION BROCHURE NO 2:” which I have attached. The validity period is stated as “may not exceed 3 years from the date of issue.”
